think about what it means for vg10 though. vg10 took over the entire steel game.
vg10 was this crazy new supersteel that would replace ats-55 or aus-8 and it actually was so amazing that it seriously became the standard for all the new japanese knives. To us, if a knife has to be AT LEAST vg10 for it be considered good. We think of it as the most basic steel. imagine hearing rumors about it and wanting it like we want s90v and ZDP.
