VG10(Takefu) - High-end stainless steel. VG-10 takes a very good edge and holds it well. Very popular with Japanese kitchen knife makers and with knife makers in general. Typically it is around 60-61 HRC, although some makers take it to 62HRC. Popular choice for kitchen knives, folders, fixed blades, etc. Good edge holding and stain resistance. Works well with high polished, acute edge, but depending in the application acute edge part may need revision. As in, if you plan to use the fixed blade for chopping would be better to beef up that edge a bit.
