Xinzuo – Yarenh Japanese VG10 Knives From China Review.
Official Xinzuo Amazon Store so not a reseller with a better handle from Xinzuo can be bought here (Slightly more expensive than buying from AliExpress but it will be shipped by Amazon):
You can buy the knife here: You can buy the knife here on AliExpress:
Beware of scams and fake advertisement while searching for a Chinese knife.
Most advertisers advertise with ”Japanese hammered Damascus VG10 steel”
But after reading further they all state the knife core with 10Cr15CoMov or a different type of core steel which they call the Chinese steel that is comparable with a Japanese VG10 that manufacturers like shun uses.

My final verdict and the price range is $35 to $40 for a Chinese 10Cr15CoMov. For the hammered Damascus look alone it is worth the price but the 10Cr15CoMov is definitely not the same as a VG10 from Japan. However, even if the knives can’t maintain their sharpness just as the VG10 they are still very good for the price and easy to sharpen with a whetstone.
Yarenh is the knife that I have used but the manufacturer is Xinzuo. If you want to buy it I can recommend that you buy it from the cheapest reseller even if the name is different. If they state that they are using 10Cr15CoMov somewhere in the description then you know that they are not lying about their core steel type being VG10.
