R2 Damascus

The R2 collection from master blacksmith Shigeki Tanaka is a super example of his attention to craft and detail and the edge retention of the R2 steel is top notch.

Why buy this range

Excellent edge retention on the R2 steel combined with a beautiful 33 layered design make it a great performer with outstanding looks.
