VG-1 (also known as V Gold 1 steel) is a high Carbon (C) Molybdenum (Mo) stainless steel
manufactured by Takefu Special Steel Co.,Ltd.It is not the same steel as VG-10.
VG-1 has a Carbon (C) content between 0.95-1.05 %, Chromium (Cr) content between 13.0-15.0 %,
Molybdenum (Mo) content between 0.2-0.4 % and contains less than 0.25 % of Nickel (Ni).
During forging, Mo and Cr form hard double carbide bonds, which help improve the abrasion and
corrosion resistance of the steel. It is usually heat treated to reach hardness of 58-61.
