I have owned numerous knives in this steel, the Spyderco Endura 4, Spyderco Centofante, Kizer Vanguard Gemini, Kizer Kesmec, Sog Pentarc, and the AL Mar Nomad. The Spyderco Endura 4 is my first VG-10 knife and the one that helped inspire me to improve my sharpening skills. Well, my sharpening skills have improved significantly over the past couple of years. I can put nice keen edges on just about every steel I come into contact with including D2, S30V, 154cm, S35VN, Niolox, etc. However, VG-10 just seems to be more difficult for me to work with. I can get it sharp enough to shave arm hair and cut paper, but it seems when I try to get that nice keen final edge like I could with 154CM, VG-10 seems to dull instead of getting sharper. I don’t know if VG-10 just requires special sharpening skills or what the deal is. Some folks don’t seem to have the same issues I’m facing. Has anyone else had any trouble getting a nice razor sharp edge on VG-10?
