Designed by noted personal-defense authority Michael Janich, the Yojimbo 2 highlights the versatility and extreme cutting power of the Wharncliffe blade profile. Ideal for both utilitarian applications and defensive use, its perfectly straight edge cuts with full power all the way to the tip and ensures an exceptionally acute point for detailed work.
This elite version of Janich's design made specially for Blade HQ showcases CPM® M4 blade steel. A popular material for high-performance custom blades and knives used in competitive cutting, CPM M4 is a special purpose high speed tool steel produced by the particle metallurgy process. Its sophisticated alloy composition, high vanadium content, and extremely fine grain structure give it exceptional wear resistance and toughness—properties that translate to outstanding edge retention and impact resistance in knife blades.
Equally unique, the handle of this Yojimbo 2 features Blade HQ's signature natural-colored G-10 handle scales. The interior surfaces of the textured scales are machined to house nested stainless steel liners that provide impressive structural strength and form the foundation of the knife's patented Compression Lock® mechanism. A polished four-position pocket clip completes the package, supporting all possible carry options and ensuring the knife is always instantly accessible.
A truly unique expression of one of Spyderco's most dynamic models, this Exclusive Yojimbo 2 is the perfect knife for users and collectors alike.
