XHP would be great but Hap40 is a great every day steel. It's a tool steel but doesn't spot too easily and the cladding really helps. It holds an edge like s30v or s35vn but it is tougher than those. It also feels sharper.
I like HAP40, but the outer layer of SUS410 seems to scratch really easily. I suppose this is just vanity but I'd like to see something a touch more resistant.
Having said that, I'll totally buy one in V-Toku. But I still hope for a Nishijin XHP or ZDP Meerkat one of these days ...
