    K110 is Bohler's name for AISI D2. I've heard good reports about the cleanliness of this steel.
    I don't know what you mean?:confused:

    vg10 is more stain resistant and easier to sharpen, d2 will hold its edge longer. both are very fine steels.

    Thanks sweet hitch-hiker.
    I was thinking of getting a German Expedition Knife.
    Puma make one in 440c
    Eickhorn have one in k-110, but a lot cheaper.

    Are you sure about that? What is the basis for your opinion?

    I agree with you that both are fine steels. However, my experience with edge holding rates them about the same with VG10 having a slight advantage.
