VG-10 Stainless Steel
VG-10 (Takefu Special Steel Co., Ltd.) is one of the most popular and highly regarded Japanese Stainless Steels for making cutlery. It has strong corrosion-resistance and can provide very good edge sharpness and edge retention. VG-10 belongs to a group of steels called “Cobalt Steels”, but it also contains Vanadium, which improves its strength, toughness and edge retention.
C 0.95-1.05% | Cr 14.5-15.5% | Mo 0.9-1.2 % | V 0.1-0.3 % | Co 1.30-1.50 %
The knife bears visible impressions of the hand-forging process (round hammer dents on the blade), which gives it a beautiful finish and also prevents food from sticking to the blade.
