What's VG-10 steel?

VG-10 is a stainless-steel material developed by Takefu Special Steel Co., Ltd. It is called the highest peak among high-grade stainless steels and has an excellent balance of hardness and stickiness. It is a recommended steel material not only for professionals but also for home knives.

In general, stainless steel tends to be seen as inferior in sharpness compared to steel. VG-10 contains a large amount of carbon and has a sharpness that is not inferior to steel due to proper forging and heat treating.

Added in chromium, molybdenum, vanadium, cobalt, etc. Badding various alloys, it becomes a blade steel that has stickiness even ihardness and excellent wear resistance and corrosion resistance.
