History and info

DAMASCUS VG-10 (ALL OF OUR SUNCRAFT BLACK AND UNIVERSAL RANGE)

VG-10 is a cutlery grade stainless steel produced in Japan. The name stands for V Gold 10 ("gold" meaning quality), or sometimes V-Kin-10 (V金10号) (kin means "gold" in Japanese). It is a stainless steel with a high carbon content containing:

  • Moderate/Low Hardness, up to 60-61 HRC

  • Carbon: 0.95 – 1.15 %

  • Chromium: 14.50 – 15.5 %

  • Cobalt: 1.30 – 1.50 %

  • Manganese: 0.50 %

  • Molybdenum: 0.90 – 1.20 %

  • Phosphorus: 0.03 %

  • Vanadium: 0.10-0.3 %

33 layers Damascus stainless steel
So-called Damascus steel is multi-layered of microthin stainless steel. 25% of components at the center of layers are called a core steel. Damascus steel used for this SENZO series has VG-10 stainless steel as a core steel which is produced only in Japan. The other 75% of components are two different hardness steel layers. The both sides of core steel are compressed with alternately soft steel and hard steel. This makes the blade look like wave patterns by special procedures.

VG-10 stainless steel for core
VG-10 Damascus steel has been acknowledged widely in the world as the best steel for kitchen knife and a lot of chefs appreciate its performance, longer sharpness as well as its beautiful design. VG-10 is relatively harder material, HRC (a scale of hardness of steel) is about HRC60. This makes steel sharpness last longer due to its abrasion resistance.

HRC (ROCKWELL SCALE)

The HRC is a hardness scale based on the hardness of a material. Typically HRC of 60+ is seen to be a quality hard steel that retains its edge over a prolonged time.
