Yahiko VG10 Damascus Gyuto 210mm No Handle. These make great hobby knives for those of you that have some woodworking skill. The Yahiko VG-10 Gyuto 210mm is made from the ubiquitous stainless steel known as VG-10, hands down the most popular alloy used in stainless knives coming out of Japan. VG-10 is a high carbon content steel that exhibits great edge taking and holding characteristics as well as being very easy to maintain. The name is derived from the Japanese V-Kin 10 branding. Kin is Gold in Japanese and thus you get VG-10. The alloy is heat treated to 60 Rockwell.
