Kamo R2 Gyuto 240mm. Shiro Kamo knives are made by Master Blacksmith Kamo-san from Takefu. Kamo-san has a small crew of only 2 other workmen currently in his shop. It's rare to find blacksmiths that excel with both grinding and forging. When Kamo-san was just 47 years old, he was awarded the "Dento-Kogei-shi" title which means "master of traditional crafts" and is given only to a select few artisans that have a significant contribution to their craft in a particular region.

"Our company has been in business for over 50 years, and we would like to deliver excellent products and we are willing to create knives that you would have emotional attachment. Knife industry is aging. I am the youngest business owner. I would like to be a business owner that would support future development. Additionally, I would like to create new skills and preserve traditional skills, and at the same time, I would like to hand on those skills to the next generation. Currently, we are producing special knives, such as soba-cutting, paper-cutting, fish-filleting, or any other knives for special purpose that provide easiness of use. We use different materials and change shapes for different usage. In the future, I would like to expand our business and I would like to make knives that anybody can recognize who made them."

    Bought this knife based on a recommendation from the forums and I have nothing but good things to say about it.

    -Comparatively cheap knife for R2 metallurgy
    -Nice workhorse of a knife. The blade feels sturdy and has a good weight. Balance point is where the pinch grip is.
    - It looks gorgeous with a gray matte damascus finish.
    - Takes and retains a steep edge very well
    - Very nice convex geometry and nonstick characteristics
    - Thin behind the edge
    - compared to my Richmond Artifex and MAC MTH-80, the wedging is greatly reduced

    Only thing is that I had to sand down the spine a bit to make it comfortable to hold. Also the out of the edge box was a 4/10 but took a great edge once I gave it some love on the stones. If you are looking for a super thin laser, this is not really the knife for you.
