The Tojiro Pro R-2 gyuto is constructed from R-2 high speed tool steel. R-2, aka SG-2, is a very high tech powdered metallurgical stainless steel that is used for making surgical instruments, metal cutting tools, and kitchen knives. It possesses a high edge retention ability while being moderately wear resistant and easy to sharpen. The core steel is clad with a softer stainless steel to protect and add strength to the blade.

The Tojiro Pro line has improved grinds and better edge consistency as compared to the DP series. It is also thinner behind the edge and the out of the box edge is far better realized. The convex grind is particularly well done, resulting in a blade that cuts efficiently while releasing food with ease.

It is a fairly robust knife in terms of weight and stiffness. The 49mm blade height is about average for a 240mm length. The knife has a nice flat spot towards the heel with a gentle belly from half way along the slender blade. The tip is finely shaped and ready for intricate slicing work. It has a fairly universal profile that will find favor with most chefs, push cutters or rockers. The blade is mated to a well-finished stainless bolster which in turn is attached to a comfortable and well-finished black Western style handle.

We think these R-2 knives form Tojiro represent a wonderful opportunity for chefs of all kinds to experience a great steel at a bargain price.

    This blade has R2 steel that is easy to sharpen and has good edge retention. The handle is rather heavy, it does hold up well in a production kitchen.

    This thing is straight mean. Stupid sharp, crazy thin, killing the game. Incredible blade for the price. Good size for big hands.The handle has rough spots. Virtually the entire edge of the tang has a tactile edge; obviously they cut costs by not finely finishing the handle after assembly. Not bothersome, just present.4/5, would buy again.
