When users chose cutting steels which are
suitable for various kinds of knives, thier
demands for performance of cutting steels
becomes diverse, but the indispensable prerequisites
of good steel have never changed.
V Gold 10, a high quality cutting stainless
steel, is made from highly-selected pure
iron material and is worked by best technology,
thus VG10 has ductility and shows workability
and forgeability. Besides VG10 is free from
corrosion caused by impure substances and
achieved good abrasion resistance. Our V
Steel Series boast these excellent features.
V Gold10 is composed by raw materials and
some elements that form alloys.
Addition of 15% of Cr, 1% of Mo and 1,5%
of Co makes the matrix (substrate) stronger
and prevents carbides from dropping out.
By adding V, the structure becomes finer.
Added Cr, Mo, and V form a lot of hard carbides,
so abrasion resistance imoroves which gives
knives long-term clean cutting, VG10 is rather
machinable and easy to grind.
VG10 also has quadratic effect in high-tempereature
tempering that it is ideal use in cutting
tools which are given surface-coating at
up to about 450℃.
