Does anyone have experience with both? Did you like one over the other? Is one easier to sharpen or hold an edge longer? I know one's carbon is one stainless I'm just trying to get an idea for how the two feel before I choose one.
His R2 knives are thinner and more laserish, both are excellent performers. His AS knives are more stout feeling. The Hammered R2 is one of my favorites for cabbage. The R2 will take a better edge and hold it longer. Some think R2 is harder to sharpen than AS but I'd call it a draw.
