The new laminate cobalt steel (for those interested, the composition is: C 1.1%. Cr. 16%. W 0.3%. Mo 1.5%. V 0.3%. Co 2.5%.) is extremely hard, although it is very unsusceptible to chipping. Another advantage is that this steel can be sharpened to achieve an edge keener than that achieved on other steels, such as VG10 or 3G steel, for instance. The most significant disadvantage is that it is considerably more expensive.
