VG10 has 15% chromium (Cr), 1% molybdenum (Mo), and 1.5% cobalt (Co) which all strengthen the matrix, yielding high hardness, in addition to maintaining a long-lasting sharp edge.
The microstructure is refined by the addition of vanadium (V). In addition, Cr, Mo, and V produce a large number of hard carbides, which further improves wear resistance.
It also has good machinability and is easy to sharpen. VG10 manifests secondary hardening with high temperature tempering, so it is also suitable for blades that require surface coating treatment up to about 450℃.
With its excellent corrosion resistance and sharpness, it performs well in a wide range of uses including kitchen knives, general purpose knives, and machine blades.

Beware of counterfeit products
Thank you for your continued patronage of our products. Recently, there have been rampant sales of similar or counterfeit products on the Internet, etc., with advertising claims that our original blade steel "VG10" (or "V 金10", VG TEN, etc.) is used as the material. Consumers are urged to exercise caution when making purchases to ensurethat what they purchase is indeed using our genuine "VG10" steel.
Please note that the performance and quality of the aforementioned similar or counterfeit products are significantly different from genuine products using our blade steel "VG10" (or "V 金10") as material and we are not responsible for any deficiencies in quality or performance, or any damage caused by such defects.
