What is this stuff? I have had a Chinese Lum folder for quite awhile, its my easy duty knife, use it for precision cutting needs, never abuse the thing. The edge lasted for a long time, quite happy with that. I decided to sharpen it the other night, little did I know that VG-10 is not normal. Took me forever to pop a burr, and I matched the angle of the grind well. My medium lansky stone(diamond) was screamin for mercy. After popping a burr on both sides, I switched to my fine stone(ultra-fine really) and polished up the edges. Geezus almighty on a pogo stick, this edge is nuts. It will pop hair thats free standing, never in my life have I been able to form such an edge. The edge makes me uneasy really. Minor pressure and it will cut skin, I tightned the knife to make sure it won't open in my pocket(tip up), the thought of that scalpel opening in my pocket makes me cringe. What makes VG-10 so apt for such an edge? I think I might have found my fav steel now.
