The decals wear off, the damascus cladding will get crappy and need refinishing like any damascus, VG-10 steel is a little more difficult to sharpen than most stainless but it's decent steel. JCK sells them and I don't think they carry any junk knives. So have fun.
More importantly, how do you intend to sharpen them?
It comes down to how much you want to spend, there's enough information here:
I have no complaints. The damascus still looks good and I have no problems sharpening it.
It was one of my very first japanese knives and has survived all of my newbie sharpening adventures remarkably well.
I have not been easy on it at all, just the reverse actually.
The logos on either side have washed off, other than that it still looks, and cuts, fine.
I'm happy with it.
