That s a bummer I had a problem with hard maple just like you described. Finally figured out the black streaks I admired were minerals. I was able to source some opti steel. The faces are black and very hard. My next step would have carbide.
You can probably push your sharpness angle up to 45 maybe even 47.
And still have clearance. That’s should help a little if you have yet.
Good luck
