BEST STEEL. BETTER DEAL.

SAME SUPER STEEL

GS VG10 vs Japanese VG10

A knife is only as good as its steel. The chemical composition determines the hardness, sharpness, corrosion resistance, and edge retention of the blade. Our Daimyo Series knives are inspired by the Japanese super steel, VG10. Instead of importing from Japan, however, our steel is globally-sourced. This means it's the chemical equivalent of Japanese VG10 but at a fraction of the cost.

Why are Japanese VG10 knives so expensive? The Japanese government restricts the sale of VG10 steel in order for Japan-based brands to have a competitive and financial advantage over other knife-makers. When you buy official “Japanese” VG10 knives, you’re paying hundreds more for the name rather than the quality. Since our steel is globally-source, we deliver the same amazing quality at an amazing price.

It's the best steel but for a better deal.
