The core steel of VG-MAX is a cobalt-stainless alloy with excellent edge retention and grindability, and is jacketed on either side with multiple layers of mild stainless steel. These knives are brought down to an acute taper and sharpened at 16 degrees per side to bring great cutting performance while maintaining a durable edge.

3. Ergonomic Design
Each knife comes with a beautifully finished damascus pattern of alternating layers of stainless steel which adds ductility to the knife.
