VG-5 is a sub group of the V Gold line of stainless steels. It is a similar steel to the ubiquitous VG-10 with a slightly larger grain structure which is the result of a higher vanadium content. It is a rugged steel, able to take a nice edge and hold it through a long session at the chopping board. It is a relatively easy steel to sharpen as compared to most other stainless alloys available.

Migaki (Polished) line of knives feature beautiful edge geometry and are quite thin behind the edge and at the spine. They have an excellent cutting feel and are light and feel very nimble and comfortable in the hand.
