We can make knives with most popular steels in the world, such as D2, ATS-34, AUS series, Sandvik series, MoV series etc, but VG10 is an exception, the manufacturer of VG10, TAKEFU Special Steel in Japan has stopped exporting VG10 to China since 2017. MoV does have some steels with very similar properties and characteristics to VG10, but VG10 is VG10, we don't like false descriptions.
Besides those steels, we also make steels by ourselves for making luxury knives. That is Tamahagane. Tamahagane is a kind of materials used for making katanas, and a katana smith will usually not make other knives in Japan, even some smiths break the rule and make chef's knives with tamahagane in Japan, the price would be super expensive, but in China, we can make the price more reasonable, as our labor cost, raw material cost... much lower.
So, why can we make tamahagane in China? Tanahagane actually originated in China thousands of years ago and then reached to Japan , It called" Yugang" or"玉钢" in Chinese. Very few Chinese blacksmiths know to make tamahagane or Yugang in 20/21 century and most of them living in remote rural areas. Our master Mr. Chen spent more than 10 years to visited, learnt from those blacksmiths, and comprehend all knowledge and experience from those blacksmiths. We can say our steel is better than tamahagane, if you like, you can call it Yugang.
We don't boast, you can check some videos of our knives made with Yugang, you can buy a sample and test it, if you don't satisfied with it, send it back and get refund.
