Available in very limited numbers and finished to the highest standards with a limited edition ironwood handle from Sadao Nishihara, the R2/SG2 hand hammered knife is a thing of outstanding beauty and craft. From every angle it's obvious that the skill required to design and make such a knife can only belong to an expert blacksmith like Yoshimi Kato.
Cutting Edge Knives is a family run business established in 2011 and based in the picturesque town of Holmfirth, West Yorkshire. We love the history and craftsmanship that goes into making Japanese chef knives and accessories and the excitement and enjoyment you experience when using a truly sharp knife in the kitchen.
Over many years we've helped thousands of happy customers find their dream knife and look forward to helping you too.
