The Takamura SG2 (R2) 130mm petty is a great choice for the discerning shopper who prefers a a thin, sharp petty with a western-style (yo) handle.

At the core of this knife you will find one of the newest advancements in powdered metallurgy, SG2 (R-2), which is sometimes referred SG-2. This is fully stainless steel that is capable of taking a tremendously sharp edge and is among the best for edge retention. The hardness on these is in the range of 62 HRC. The knife is clad in a softer stainless to provide added durability. The finish is a well-done migaki, meaning "polished" in Japanese. The super fine edge and a well-polished blade provide a unique experience for the user.

The western-style handle is made from rosewood, and the fit and finish is very good. The blade has an ample height of 29mm, so board work is quite comfortable. The spine measures 1.4mm and is even thinner at the tip. It is a true laser-like petty, and it's feather light at 2.2 ounces!

      5 years later and still going strong, May 28, 2022

    This knife and the Takamura Migaki Santoku were both purchased 5 years ago. I was hesitant to purchase for two reasons. First, while I read very good things about R-2/SG2 powdered Stainless metallurgy, I am a long time fan of carbon Steel knives and secondly was the low price point of these knives.

    That being said, I really wanted to try out this steel and the price made the risk worthwhile. CKTG also has a great return policy which mitigated my risk even further. Upon receipt of the two knives, I was immediately pleasantly impressed. The F&F was absolutely outstanding and the knives were too sharp to preclude further sharpening.

    When I put the knives to the test, I found that they were well balanced, a pleasure to use, and held their edge for a long, long time. When I finally felt the need to sharpen them, I also found that they sharpened up easily and extremely well. So the bottom line - stainless steel (easier to maintain), comes with a stellar sharpness, holds the edge for a long time, sharpens easily and well, and the price point is frosting on an outstanding piece of cake(kit).

    5 years later and they still represent a great investment. Worth every penny and then some. Mark and Susan job well done on discovering this blacksmith.

    Super sharp laser. It is the wifes go to knife for everyday fruits veggies etc. I also have the 210. The R2 works well for the wife. I got tired of cleaning the rust off of Tojiro 120mm Petty which we was here favorite before we got the 130 Takamura. Similar profile..

      Number three for me

    What can i say? I bought the 180mm, then the 210. For the price these knives rock! I added the 130 not only because it was a size I lacked but I knew the laser sharpness would be there. This knife, just like the other two definitely delivers.

    Received the knife today (CKTG service is excellent by the way). I have long wanted to explore R2 materials and a cladded knife and this was a great opportunity to do just that. Sharpness OOTB was outstanding, as well as, the fit and finish. Should you be looking for a petty to add to your tool selection, this should be at or near to the top of the list.
