The main feature of VG7 is its rich content of tungsten (W). Tungsten carbide is well dispersed in the microstructure and contributes to the improvement of wear resistance. Abrasion resistance is superior to SUS440C*, in addition, it is easy to make sharp edges and has high hardness. It has excellent wear resistance, yet its toughness is still high.
This material is widely used for cutting shears because of its durability, moreover, its use has expanded to include both kitchen knives and general purpose knives. *According to our data
