Hi Marcus - I have found VG-10 to be easier to maintain than ATS-34. IMO better peformance than AUS-8. I wish that Spydie would use more VG-10 in their line, possibly converting the core models (Endura, Delica, Rescue) to use this steel. For medium to heavy duty work, I believe that you won't have any problems with VG-10. I've got both plain and serrated versions of the full sized Calypso, and they both came out of the box hair-splitting sharp. The plain edge will shave your arm clean
Also, if you have not read my review of this knife that appears on the Reviews Page of this site, click <a href="http://www.bladeforums.com/reviews/review-1.htm">here</a>. Hope this info helps!

The C54 Calypso is awesome. I carry the plain edge version and as Dexter said, it does shave very nicely. I have medium sized hands, and it fits and feels really good. So far, using it for daily cutting tasks, I haven't had to resharpen it.
Off the subject; Wasn't Calypso a Greek goddess??
