    VG-10 PITA



    VG 10 is a pita to sharpen and carbon is not. That is all.

    Thanks

    Try so hard every time I use a VG-10 knfie to like it. But the thought of sharpening it makes me sad. I end up donating it to my parents. They don't complain.

    I've found it very hard to give away my VG-10. Nobody wanted it.

    Once I put a good edge on my Hattori FH, I haven't had problems with it. I tend to beat up that knife a little bit and it comes back nicely.

    I haven't liked VG10 either, but strangely enough, VG1 is pretty nice. It's still chippy, but it doesn't feel as dead as VG10.
    Obviously, nothing compares to carbon. Pierre's S35VN is really nice for a stainless, though, and it feels a bit like Misono carbon on the stones.

    In my experience, zdp-189 deburrs quite a bit easier though.

    Rahimlee54,
    I would love to try and sharpen VG-10. I have never had any exposure to it. All I have ever worked with is CPM S30V and S35VN so if you would like me to take a try at it just send it to me and I'll do my best with it and send it back. Please consider my propostion as a free sharpening service to you and a learning expereince for me.


    THANKS,
    PZ

    I assume you sharpen by hand? My FH-7 tidies up quite well on the slack belts.
