    They are very wear resistant steels due to to the large carbide volume. The one draw back to these steels is that they are prone to chipping.

    Devin or Larrin, sorry if this was covered, but I just didnt have time to read all 13 pages right now. Opinion and ranking on R2 like in a Hiro Itou. I know it is one of my favorites at this time, if not my most favorite that I have used.

    ****In response to Gator97

    R2 and ZDP-189 are in the same class in that they are both going to be high wear resistance powder metallurgy grades. ZDP-189 and Cowry-X are both oddities in that they are stainless steels that can reach extreme hardness (they are the only ones I know of capable of 70+ Rc). R2 could have smaller carbides, as ZDP has a lot of carbide. I would choose between knives instead of steel in this case. If you ever had a choice between the two then I would think about it a little longer.

    It looks like a cousin to S35VN.
