New Gekko line from Kurosaki san utilizes the latest steel called VG XEOS.
VG XEOS is a material that offers a combination of high corrosion resistance and high hardness. This unique combination of properties is achieved through a special melting method that creates a fine microstructure within the material. The fine microstructure enhances several important characteristics, including wear resistance, strength, and quenching properties.
