The Spyderco Civilian

4 inches of VG-10 stainless, and one of the most wicked blades available.

Since anything above .5% carbon is considered a high-carbon steel, you can see that VG-10 is tough blade material. And most of the VG-10's in use today are closer to 62 HRC than 58, or at least they were last time I bugged the shit out of them.

The Civilian will set you back about $160
