Yeah I'm usually half annoyed, and half thankful I don't have to consider all those knives with a heavy righty bias whenever a new catalogue comes out.
I like VG10 a lot. The only reason I don't really consider it in models like the Paul Alexander designs is because I already have so many VG10 knives. Usually a different steel is what helps me justify a new knife purchase. Plus the Japanese made prices are gradually increasing to the level where makers like Taichung often seem to be outcompeting them.
Most of my stainless kitchen knives are VG10 and it's a really excellent, well rounded steel when run a bit harder in thin edges.
I generally won't consider a model in S30V unless there are exceptional circumstances, like a model I really, really want, that doesn't come in any other steel. The second Spyderco I ever bought was a S30V PM2 (which I loved), but once I started thinning it out and refining the edge, it had some odd continuous microchipping behaviour.
At the time I thought it was just how high vanadium steels must act, but lately I'm more inclined to think I may have received a bad example.
I've purchased a Yo2 and a Lefty Millie and a Kapara in S30V since then, and they seem to behave OK, but based on my first experience with the steel, I always have a bit of reserve in my mind about the way the steel acts in thin, refined edges.
Higher carbide steels like ZDP189, S110V and Maxamet have never given me any similar issues.
