“M” Series VG10 Japanese Stainless Steel

Posted on

VG10 steel is a designation used for a very particular type of stainless steel often used in knife blades. The G stands for “gold”, which refers to the “gold standard” that this level of stainless steel is considered to have met. This steel is produced in Japan, and it is the Japanese cutlery market that has traditionally made the most use of this particular type of steel in its  Hair shears and knives. However, it isn’t just kitchen cutlery that has put VG10 stainless steel to good use over the years since the designation was officially created, many top of the line shears, hunting, tactical knives and Surgical instruments have used VG-10 steel.
