    I've been thinking about a stainless gyuto about 240 - 300 mm long as a daily driver at home, for the days when you don't want to be fussy about cleaning up even if it's not pro use. It seems like R2 is a popular choice here for this.

    How do the different popular R2 gyutos compare? And, stupid question, what can these not do such that someone would still use a non-stainless as this kind of daily driver?

    Ana had just turned 18 years old and she was excited. This beautiful, young Latina girl with long, wavy brown hair, gorgeous hazel eyes and luscious lips was looking forward to seeing Beth again. Beth was a good friend of Ana's Mom and had been Ana's babysitter for years since she was a little girl. Beth was equally gorgeous with long, straight blonde hair, sky blue eyes that would pierce the heart and soul of anyone she would encounter and a tight, plump ass you could spend all day eating out and never have your fill.

    Since Ana's parents would be on a trip over the weekend, they did not want to leave their daughter who had just turned 18 a few days ago fending for herself so they decided to invite Beth to spend the weekend with Ana so she wouldn't be alone. Under normal circumstances, Ana would have fought this idea feeling that she was old enough to be on her own. But, she really wanted to see Beth in the worst way.

    The other night when Ana was slowly touching herself and sliding her middle finger into her moist, juicy pussy she had these thoughts that came rushing in like a flood. She imagined Beth rubbing her pussy against hers very slowly at first and then faster feeling and hearing their vaginal cum flowing between each other. With every stroke of their scissoring action, the moaning between them would grow louder and more passionate. Looking into each other's eyes as they continued to straddle together was intoxicating. Beth leaning in and slipping her warm tongue into Ana's mouth was overwhelming as the friction continued between their legs with an intensity that would rival some of the best love stories in literature.

    Ana came all over herself in that moment and realized to her disappointment that it was all in her head. The passion, intensity and sweet nectarine that she could almost taste from Beth's pussy was all a fantasy. She made the decision that night that she would turn her thoughts into a reality next time she saw Beth. That next time came sooner than anticipated. Beth would be arriving any minute now and her parents would be gone for two whole days. Before Ana got caught in the fantasy again, there was a knock on the door.

    Ana rushed down the stairs and Beth was standing in the living room greeting her parents. When Ana locked eyes with Beth, a certain glint in Beth's eyes along with her sweet half smile seemed to suggest that Beth was having the same fantasy. They embraced and Beth rubbed her hands up and down Ana's back in such a sensual way that Ana was worried for a moment that her parents might sense the attraction between them.

    "Wow, you've grown, Ana...you look absolutely beautiful..." She said in a soft whisper.

    Ana's parents thanked Beth for being available this weekend and kissed Ana good bye. Once they left the house, Ana turned to Beth and gave her another hug. She whispered in her ear "You have no idea how much I've been thinking of you". Beth was caught off guard but replied that she had been thinking of Ana quite a bit also.

    They walked towards Ana's bedroom and sat on her bed. Ana held Beth's hand and said she was glad she could spend the weekend with her. She looked into Beth's eyes and said "I need to tell you something"...
    "You can tell me anything", Beth responded.

    Ana proceeded in telling Beth all about her fantasy. She went into detail about the way they sucked on each other's tongue's swapping spit multiple times. She went over how they rubbed pussies together in such a feverish way that their cum mixed together like the sweetest cocktail you can imagine. She talked about how they touched their nipples together and biting each others ever so slightly. She went over how they drank each other's pussy juices and continued kissing. When Ana finished telling her everything, Beth was speechless. You could tell that the fantasy had gotten her hot and bothered.

    She looked at Ana erotically and couldn't control herself. She leaned in and kissed Ana intensely. Their tongues locked together like a vine intertwining. Their saliva mixed in such harmony and tasted so good they could hardly draw a breath. The heaving and panting began as they stripped off their clothes so fast that within 10 seconds their bodies were naked and touching each other. Nipple on nipple, pussy on pussy, missionary style as Beth moved her hips into Ana's. With every thrusting motion, their pussy lips kissed each other swapping juices so intensely that it was as if they were trying to conceive a child somehow out of their love for each other.

    Ana couldn't believe what was happening. She had longed for this moment since she had that fantasy and it was finally happening. Beth was also having fantasies for so long and now they were both living it out. Ana moved on top of Beth and swirled her tongue around her nipples so softly that Beth couldn't help but moan and cum again. Ana's tongue slid all the way down Beth's belly button and in between her legs. Beth was writhing in pleasure as Ana drank her nectar moving her tongue so deep inside of her that Beth almost passed out in ecstasy.

    Beth sat up and kissed Ana again tasting herself in the process. This time Ana slid her legs upwards while Beth kissed her inner thighs and moved her mouth over Ana's blooming flower. Beth sucked on her clitoris in a sensual way that Ana came in her mouth.

    After Ana's climax, they looked into each other's eyes and kissed slowly again hugging and resting on top of each other. Ana laid her head on Beth's bosom and kissed her on the neck whispering in her ear.." I've always loved you..." Beth smiled and looked at her. She kissed her softly and said "I love you too baby...forever..." They fell asleep together knowing that they would have the entire weekend to keep fucking their brains out...

    for home use, 240 mm should be the top end for length. Above that can be unwieldy.
    You might find a 210 mm Petty to be a better overall Work Horse.

    I have the 150 mm petty & the kochi 270 mm Gyuto. They both came insanely sharp out of the box.
    the best quality of any of my knives

    I talked to R2D2 to convince him to be my daily driver. He refused, as X-Wings are known to be high maintenance and have glitchy boards.

    240-300 is the most preferred size for professionals, one reason being personal preference, and another reason being that they work in large kitchen spaces with large cutting boards. If you have room for a 240-300 at home, then all power to you. Smaller kitchens work better with 210 or even 180.
    R2 (also known as SG2) is popular mainly because it has great edge retention. Other powder steels like SRS15 similarly offer high HRC and long edge life.
    People who prefer carbon steel knives are expressing their personal preference. Carbon steels as everyone knows needs care, but they can be quite sharp and easy to sharpen. Some folks love a patina. Some don't.
    Takamura R2s are very popular. Tojiro also offers an R2 line. Many many makers offer R2 knives.
    Personally I think Aogami Super is the only carbon steel I have that comes somewhat close (but not quite) in edge retention to R2.

    Oh wow! I want to try R2 now! How hard is R2 to sharpen in your opinion relative to Blue Super or Blue #2?

    I personally find Blue Super easier to sharpen than R2. But - I tend to think all carbon steels are easier, ie; quicker to sharpen, easier to deburr, than stainless steels including even VG10.

    I still may have to give this a go. The ease in sharpening the Aogami steels is something I've always loved about them, but I've also been very satisfied with their edge retention. (Although I've never been certain if that ease in sharpening is more the steel, more any knife I've ever sharpened in it having very good geometry, or both, but that's another story.) A stainless option would be nice and I've been thinking about a 210mm as of recent.
