R2 is a powdered metallurgical steel that offers some impressive specifications and properties. The steel is a proprietary powdered alloy made by The Kobelco Steel Company primarily for use in the manufacturing of tools. It is a perfect alloy for kitchen knives as it is easy to maintain and can be hardened to a reasonably high rating, in this case 62+ HRC. The core of this knife is covered in a layer of a softer stainless steel for protection and strength. The cladding is given a very unique hammered look, which together with the hand-engraved kanji results in a blade of great aesthetic appeal.

The knife has a very nice profile which presents a long flat portion at the back of the blade and a very well-proportioned belly to the slim tip. A 50/50 symmetrical grind is given a convex geometry that we particularly admire.

Blacksmith Yu Kurosaki is one of our favorite smiths and he has made a blade that looks and performs as well as any we carry. Add in the great strengths of R2 steel and you have a knife that is both easy to maintain and has an ability to hold its razor sharp edge over long sessions.

    5  Beautiful Knife, July 28, 2017
    Posted By: Jeff B - verified customer

    This knife is crazy thin behind the edge and very light. Has the feel of a laser to me. Blade fit and finish is excellent and the chiseled kanji is very nice. The handle is very nice after a little finish work to it, the install was perfect.Absolutely spectacular performance! Just whisperers through most produce and tackles tall root vegetables with no wedging. The tip on this knife is amazing in horizontal cuts. Food release is excellent. The R2 takes a great edge and edge retention is as good as you would expect. The knife feels a little delicate until you get a feel for her. If your looking for a hearty feeling workhorse this is not the knife for you.Another great offering from Kurosaki!
