What is VG 10 stainless steel?
V Gold 10 generally known as VG-10 or sometimes V-Kin-10 (kin stands for "gold" in japanese) is a quality cutlery grade stainless steel produced in Japan ("Gold" denotes high quality). VG-10 was designed by Takefu Special Steel co.,Ltd, base in Takefu, Fukui Prefecture, Japan (former cutlery/sword-making center of Echizen) VG-10 was initially aimed mostly at stainless Japanese chef knives production but it did quickly find important development in sport cutlery. It was made worldwide popular to the pocket knife world by famous brand Spyderco which produced some of its most famous models (Delica, Endura, Police...) from VG-10 steel in Japan. Due to some reason (possibly steel export restrictions) almost all VG-10 steel knives are manufactured in Japan. VG-10 is a unique formulation of steel with a high carbon content, and containing various amounts of one or more of the following: Chromium, Vanadium, Molybdenum and Cobalt. The steel is specially designed for high-quality blades used in kitchen cutlery, such as chef's knives, vegetable knives, cleavers, paring knives, carving knives and the like. VG-10 is often called "super steel," because it is designed to maintain sharpness and durability without becoming brittle, a major fault normally associated with exceptionally hard steel. This quality is ideal when extreme sharpness is desired, as most other steel will not take or keep an edge like VG-10. When this type of steel is used in a knife, it is normally encased in layers of steel providing greater corrosion-resistance, leaving only the "super steel" exposed at the edge for fine cutting. More information on VG-10 Steel VG-10 components are VG10 C:1.0% Cr:15,0% Mo:1.0% V:0.2% Co:1.5%

In technical terms, it is also known by the name of inox or inoxsteel. It is an alloy of steel, with a minimum of 10.7% of chromiumcontent . It does not quickly disintegrate,… corrode or tintwhen it comes in contact with water, which is the case withordinary steel. Though it is called "Stainless", however, it is not100% stain proof.
All stainless steel has at least 10.5% Chromium in it. Chromium is what makes the steel stainless. The other elements in stainless steel can be nickel, nitrogen, molybdenum. Y…ou can find more information here: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-stainless-steel.htm It is the incorporation of a good bit of chromium that makes steel into stainless steel. The presence of chromium in steel alloys allows them to resist chemical attack better than "regular" steels. Stainless steel contains chromium. The chromium forms a protective oxide layer on the metal surface. Even when scratched or cut, a new chromium oxide layer will form in stainless steel.
Stainless steal is a mixture of carbon (2%) atoms and chromium (13%) and steel (85%). Stainless steal is more brittle than other metals because of the high carbon content. Chr…omium helps protect the steel from rust.
stainless steel that have 18% chrome, 10% nickel, popular material for cookware and cutlery.
Stainless steel becomes stainless when Chromium is added to steel. This makes it resistant to corrosion.
Steel is mostly iron with a percent or so of carbon . To make stainless steel, we add a bit over 10% (and sometimes up over 20%) chromium , which is the key metal that mak…es the steel stainless. We'll also generally add some nickel or possibly manganese to make the steel more workable. A link can be found below.
It means that the it has 18% Chromium and 10% Nickel.
ATS-314 costs twice as much as VG-10. JP ATS314, 60-61HRC VG 10, 60-61HRC Not sure why exactly.
Stainless steel is an Alloy steel because it contains chromium as an alloying element - steels without alloying elements are called carbon steels.
The primary characteristics that steel and stainless steel share are that both are steels, and are made of iron with a bit of carbon in them. While stainless steel has about 1…0% or more of chromium in it, the "steel" part is still essentially the same.
no Actually, despite the opinion of the previous poster, yes you can! Use a flux suitable for stainless and there should be no problems. I've done it many many times comple…tely without issue.
You can weld stainless steel to stainless steel using various welding methods such as TIG welding and MIG welding. However, it is best to get a professional to do the job. And… understand that stainless steel does not weld very successfully under any circumstances - it will almost always, inevitably, break right next to the weld.
Stainless steels are chromium containing steel alloys, the minimum chromium content of the standardised stainless steels is 10.5%. The better corrosion resistance is due to a …chromium oxide film that is formed on the steel surface. This extremely thin layer, under the right conditions, is also self-repairing. Besides chromium, typical alloying elements are molybdenum, nickel and nitrogen, Nickel is mostly alloyed to improve the formability and ductility of stainless steel

To glue 2 pieces of stainless steel first degrease them totally to make certain the surfaces will hold glue. The best glues for this are J B Weld, Araldite and LePage Extreme.…
Bed bath an beyond is a good start point for this search as they have a wide range of 18/10 stainless steel, but it really depends what you're looking for and what your price …range is. If you fancy looking around before you buy, department stores such as Sears also stock a good range.
