Ive used a bit of reh Creative Man vg10 san mai over teh years. vg10 is an impressive steel and presents beautifully clad in stainless san mai. For a stainless product it is easy to work with, I have had great results in my gas forge albeit with careful monitoring of hea=t and oxygen levels. The stainless cladding is less effected by oxygenation and pitting than mainstream ss and requires little work to clean up after heat treating. Creative Mans service is second to none with prompt, efficient and friendly service.
