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%

Stainless steel is mainly composed of iron and 10 % chromium.

Stainless steel cookware that is 18/10 stainless steel; has aluminium or copper-coated base; and tri-ply.

While stainless steel is an alloy of steel, the primary difference between stainless steel and other steels is that the stainless steels have a high percentage (about 10% or even more) of the element chromium in them.

VG5 is a stainless steel with 0.7% of carbon, 13% of chromium and 0.2 of molybdenum. It is a very fine grain steel

stainless steel that have 18% chrome, 10% nickel, popular material for cookware and cutlery.

Stainless steel melts at 2750 Fahrenheit. Stainless steel is also known as inox steel and has a minimum of 10. 5 percent chromium content.

Stainless steel is a steel alloy, which is Iron infused with carbon, with about 10% Chromium by mass.

There is stainless steel and there is magnaized stainless steel but you can not make regular stainless steel magnetic

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 10% or more of chromium in it, the "steel" part is still essentially the same.

The Model 10 is not made in stainless steel.

Stainless steel is an alloy of steel (which is iron with a bit of carbon) and the element chromium. The chromium content of stainless steel varies, but is generally a bit over 10% to give it the "stainless" effect. It is the chromium in the steel alloy that inhibits rusting and gives this stuff the "stainless" tag.

steel is steel and there is nothing you can do about it even if it is stainless steel or it i not stainless steel it will rust

Stainless steel becomes stainless when Chromium is added to steel. This makes it resistant to corrosion.

All stainless is not created equal. For surgical-quality stainless least likely to rust, get 18/10 stainlees steel. A lower number before the 10 is lower quality .

When an alloy of steel contains more than approximately 10 ½% Chromium it can be classified as a stainless steel. There are several clasifications of stainless steel with varying propertys Martensitic, Ferritic, Austenitic and Duplex.

a magnet does not attract stainless steel because stainless steel has steel but without stains

Yep, you can weld steel to stainless and you can weld stainless to steel. You can use steel or stainless welding rod in either case but the steel or steel welding rod will of course rust.

Stainless steel because it does not have to be combined with oxygen is stainless. Becauseit is alloyed with chrome and stainless steel.

No, Stainless steel is not porous. Steel how ever is.

Well, the answer lies in the question; by saying 'real' stainless steel, you are implying that there are fake metals which go under the name 'stainless steel', thus the difference is that the stainless steel in refigerators is actually stainless steel, and the fake stainless steel is not...thus your question is answered...

No, It is made up of the following mixture: 18/8 stainless steel is 18% chromium and 8% nickel while 18/10 has 10% nickel

Cromargan is a trademark of german company WMF. It is 18/10 stainless steel usually with a blank/reflective chrome like surface. Accordign to WMF, they started shipping 18/10 stainless steel in 1927 under the name cromargan.
