Hi all, I've had a cheap vg10 knife for a year now, which is fine for most cutting but it's edge retention is horrible, nearly same as my zwillings but without the option to be honed. While searching for a new knife, the Masakage's caught my eye, both aogami and shirogami (both #2) series. Now I was wondering: what is the practical difference between those steels? I have found both are high in hrc, around 62/63, and both will be somewhat reactive as they are carbon steel. Also, the aogami series is (way) cheaper than the shirogami series. Any thoughts?
