VG10 steel offers a sweet spot of high performance and easy maintenance. As a pretty hard stainless steel it can get very sharp, retain that sharp well, and is very easy to maintain. 

The Nakiri has a straighter blade perfect for vegetable work with a design to make up and down chopping easier. It's a great knife for tasks such as julienne, brunoise or allumette. Due to its strength and weight it is also an excellent choice for chopping large hard vegetable such as squash or pumpkin.
