VG 10 stainless steel is a mixture that contains roughly 1% carbon, 1% molybdenum, 15% chromium, . 2% vanadium and 1.5% cobalt. All of these relatively small amounts of other metals give the VG 10 steel its unusual properties, such as its ability to hold an edge, and the sheer durability of the steel in question. It’s high-end steel with a balanced chemical composition, it offers great edge retention, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, hardness and toughness, so the question is pretty obvious here. And Yes it’s good for knives, especially if you’re working in a humid environment, it’s very popular in Japan (It’s one of the best choices on the Japanese Fishermen).
