AUS10 is a versatile stainless steel with excellent robustness and edge retention when heat-treated properly. It behaves similarly to VG10, but is a little easier to sharpen. AUS10 requires very little maintenance, and can be honed on a high-grit whetstone, or on a ceramic honing rod to maintain sharpness between whetstone sessions.
