R2 steel is a hard stainless steel used by leading blacksmiths to provide some of the best sharpness and retention specifications that can be achieved from stainless steel. It makes for a superbly sharp knife that lasts a long time but can require a little more elbow grease when sharpening due to being a harder steel.

Boning Knives (or Honesuki) are vital to a professional chef for, well, boning. With a thicker blade, straighter edge coning to a point and usually a single sided bevel although these are double bevel, these knives allow very precise work around objects such as bones.
