G series is proprietary. HRC @ 60. "Stain resistant" is what I remember, but don't know if that means stainless or semi-stainless.

S1 series is tougher to find info on. From memory, I think the Ironwood series replaced the S series but kept the S1 blade. I believe the Ironwood is VG10, although that doesn't guarantee the S1 is.

As far as popularity, I feel there are better knives for better prices, especially with folks like CKTG out there. But that admittedly is just MHO.

Last I recall, the S1's used VG1 but any knowledge on the subject was speculation and hushed whispers as I don't recall Nenox ever divulging what the steel actually was publicly.

G series...no idea.

I'm certain people still buy them or places wouldn't still be offering them for sale. They're a great knife, from a great company.....with a not so great price IMHO. But, their F&F is beyond reproach.

We tried selling them for about a year and they collected dust.

They definitely aren't worth the price now. I have 3 from before the price hike. The suji is the only one i really used much nit fond of the 210 gyuto its too short for me. Things seem to really hang on to a bur
