VG2(Takefu) - Stainless cutlery steel. Used in budget knives of various types. Basically lower carbon version of the Takefu VG1 stainless steel. It is still a high carbon steel by knife marketing definition though. Lower edge holding, however more stain resistant and tougher compared to VG1. Would do better for heavy duty knives I guess. On occasion, it is used with VG-10 steel in pattern welded Damascus steel, alternatively can be used as a laminate material as well.

Manufacturing Technology - Ingot

Country - Japan(JP)
