240mm (9.5”) gyuto forged from Takefu super gold 2 ( aka r2 ) stainless pm steel with Damascus cladding , heat treated in house to 63-64hrc including cryo. Sg2 is one of the two stainless steels I offer , at this hardness it keeps its edge lot longer than any carbon steel at the same hardness due to the chromium and vanadium carbides in it . Despite the steels abrasion resistance it is not hard to sharpen and gets super sharp . The knife that won the sharpest knife award in Melbourne 18 show was in sg2 as well
