All I can comment is that R2 steel is great.

Takes & holds an exceptionally keen edge, while being very easy to sharpen/touch up.

It just came in and we're the only one in the country that is carrying it. The grinds are excellent on the knife and the damascus is unique and really nice looking. One of my better finds from my Japan trip. I'll have specs on the Kamo later today.

We've been getting in a ton of really cool stuff lately. I'm not sure if you guys check our new arrivals section but I keep it up to date usually a few times a week:

Shigeki confirmed that R2 = SG2 a while back. In general, good steel, but steel is only half the story. If the HT and maker are good, then the knife will perform very well. If not, then it won't.

I've been using my saji r2 daily since July and it hasn't needed sharpening after the initial edge, so R2 definitely has great potential, but I don't know anything about this maker.

No it's stainless powdered steel and it's not reactive.
