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.

Petty knives are a smaller blade mainly used for slicing or chopping veg, meat, herbs, or perhaps even filleting a fish. A vital knife for when a Gyuto (all-purpose chef's knife) is too big. Blades are the same profile as a Gyuto, but are normally between 120mm and 150mm, with the smaller blades being used for peeling or removing ends off the chopping board.
