Is it worth the price difference to the Endura Vtoku?
It depends what you’re looking to get out of the steel. The price difference, for me, isn’t enough to sway me one way or the other but you’ll want to check out the different qualities of the steel. Vtoku is a carbon steel that can corrode quickly if you’re not careful but takes a very keen edge without much effort. It will also come back nicely after stropping. HAP40 is more of a tool steel that will hold an edge longer and isn’t as susceptible to corrosion as vtoku. HAP40 has a better balance of qualities than vtoku.
