The Tojiro 135mm Petty R2 Powdered-Steel is one of our favorites. The Tojiro brand name is synonymous with high value knives and kitchen tools. They are the gateway brand for many chefs and home cooks entering the world of Japanese kitchen cutlery. We have been selling the ever popular DP line for many years with users loving the price-to-performance ratio of these ubiquitous knives.

We are now offering a couple of new additions to the Tojiro line which we are certain will be popular with both home and professional chefs. The knives are a step up from the DP range. They feature an inner core of the highly regarded “super steel” called R-2. This is also known as SG-2 and it is a powdered metallurgical alloy. This is very hard steel which has recently found favor with many leading blacksmiths. The core steel is clad with softer stainless steel.

Powdered metallurgical steels are high carbon, high alloy stainless steels that have been powdered into a very fine grain and then sintered back together. This results in a steel that has consistent properties throughout the manufacturing process.

This Tojiro Pro R-2 petty has a really well-executed convex grind. It is beautifully thinned behind the edge with commensurate levels of fit and finish. If you are seeking a knife that is a step above the DP line, but one that continues to offer a wonderful price-to-performance ratio, the Tojiro Pro R-2 petty could be just what you are looking for.

      Good knife, with limitations, October 3, 2022
    Posted By: Brian Hoskins

    Perfectly sized for light line work, veg and fruit prep, etc, but it will let you know when you're asking too much as there is some blade give on heavier work. The thin blade has its merits, but you'll have to reach for a heavier knife for thick or dense veg like beets or jicama. Good handle and grip, decently sharp out of the box. Mine came with a rather large burr at the bolster end of the blade. Large enough that it should have never made it out of the factory, or out of the retailer and it my opinion makes a factory second. Fixable, but that makes it a 3 instead of a 4.
