This Blade HQ exclusive Spyderco Yojimbo 2 is the next in line of our sold-out M4 and natural G-10 series! The Yojimbo 2 doesn't get a lot of exclusive makeup offerings, which is a shame because we love this knife! Limited run that will go quick.

We've tweaked the standard Yojimbo 2 configuration to create a unique addition to our exclusive Spyderco lineup. The standard blade has been upgraded with premium CPM-M4 steel, a high-speed steel with excellent toughness and edge retention qualities. The standard handle has been replaced with translucent green natural G-10 scales.

Designed by noted personal-defense trainer Michael Janich, the Yojimbo 2 is a pioneer in the application of the Wharncliffe blade. Refined ergonomics complement the natural contours of the hand, ensuring maximum surface contact and positive control. They also encourage a thumb-forward grip and make the blade a natural extension of the hand. The straight cutting edge offers extreme cutting performance by transferring power all the way to the tip and ensures improved point strength. The handle has nested stainless steel liners and a Compression Lock.

Customer Reviews

Sexy Functional EDC, Maintains Its Edge
Jeff H. on Oct 12, 2018

This has impressed me, and exceeded my expectations in every way. The M4 blade is incredible. I decided to test it out by widling a heart for my daughter that is about the size of my fist. I used wood from a spruce tree I cut down in my yard. The blade is still so sharp that I can shave with it. The natural G10 scales are lightweight, and beautiful. I added a Titanium Blue Lynch deep carry pocket clip, and the colors from the g10 and the laser etching on the blade really pop out at you. The Ti Blue clip, and natural g10 compliment each other beautifully. My new favorite knife. Can't see that changing anytime soon. So happy I jumped on this before they sold out. I'm lucky enough to live within a few miles of BladeHQ, so I stopped in after work the day I got the email that the Yojimbo 2 w/ natural g10, AND M4 BLADE STEEL, was in stock.

James L. on Oct 12, 2018

I have been eyeing the Yojimbo 2 for many months and decided to pull the trigger when the M4 version was released. Amazing knife. Great fit and finish. Great slicer. Action perfect out of the box. Every single piece of paper and cardboard in my house now look like a mound of shredded paper. Well done!

leon p. on Oct 17, 2018

C85GM4P2 .OMG. You can cut your self by just looking at it. Lucked out. Was returning a so so bugout bench knife. Saw it in the morning and called, already half sold out. The ergononomics are unparalleled. The blade is flat scary. Leon. p.s. have yojimbo M4 will travel.

Love it!
Jesse T. on Mar 14, 2019

My first and only Yojimbo. If you like a Para 3 but want a different blade style, I feel like you should like this! Very similar size and everything. Great knife.

My first of many
Ken D. on Oct 18, 2018

I absolutely love this knife. Ergonomics are great, looks awesome to me, the upgraded M4 is amazing and has the sharpest edge I've handled yet. Downside of M4 is obviously keeping it clean and oiled. Also I did have to tweak the pivot to get the action right and fix the centering slightly. Blade HQ your sevice was great, and you'll be sending more Spyderco compression locks my way in the future.

Skyler A. on Oct 13, 2018

I waited for this knife for awhile and I was not disappointed. The fit and finish were great and the design of the knife is compelling. Watch Michael Janich on YouTube and you'll sing the praises of a warncliffe Spyderco forevermore.

Surprising edc
colin b. on Oct 12, 2018

This knife is not just a good fighting knife. I don’t even know how to fight with a knife. The ergonomics and very fine point which make it a good fighting knife make it a great edc knife also. It’s honestly my favorite knife to carry. It has more pocket time than any other. Also made in golden Colorado to boot, what more could you want?

Soooooo Right
Felipe A. on Nov 1, 2018

Gentlemen, owning this knife will make all of your other knives jealous! They will recieve little to no pocket time! The texture of the naked G10 scales adds a great amount of traction in your hand and just enough for the pocket. The blade is a massively manly slab of M4 steel. Holding this knife is like holding the hand of the girl you had a crush on in high school but knew you never had a chance with! Thank you for defining superb performance Blade HQ staff! This is how buying a knife should feel!!!

Great EDC blade !
Jose C. on Oct 4, 2018

This is my second Yojimbo 2 and by far my favorite, The combo of natural scales and CPM-M4 make this one a winner. Great ergos, super sharp blade, excellent action, and frame lock. I would have love to see this combo with a DLC coated blade but this one is also a great offering.

Expectations met!
Corey E. on Oct 4, 2018

I waited over three months for this blade to release. I guarantee I was one of the first to order on Blade HQ when the blade released. Upon arrival the M4 blade is razor sharp, and very impressive. Strongly recommend purchasing a Yojimbo 2. I see they are now out of stock. Congrats to all that purchased. You will not be sorry.

great quality control on these
matt c. on Oct 4, 2018

very nice

Austin H. on Oct 12, 2018

Nice knife

Close To Drop Dead Perfect
James S. on Oct 5, 2018

Knife is perfect in almost every way. Drop dead gorgeous combination of factors. Blade steel, G-10 scale color and a superior knife design. But I can't figure out why Spyderco has to put that damn lame pocket clip on everything. Mine took just a touch on the pivot screw to be amazing.Talk about a sophisticated deadly knife! Thanks Blade HQ!!

Darby J. on Oct 13, 2018

I have a bunch of the M4 exclusives and just like the rest this one is excellent. There haven’t been many limited edition Yojimbos so I was especially excited for this one.

Yo 2 in M4
Hamit K. on Oct 14, 2018

My second Yo 2. Impressive fit and finish. Wicked sharp. Thick and robust blade steel. Will go into rotation for edc. Thanks Spyderco and Blade HQ, well done!

Beyond All Expectations!
Curt B. on Oct 9, 2018

I scoured numerous knife sites waiting for an exclusive Spyderco with natural G-10 scales. When I saw a Yojimbo 2 with an M4 blade AND natural G-10, I clicked the purchase button before reading the details. Perfect deployment action, using my thumb or middle finger. The compression lock assertively closes the blade with a mild flick. The transluscent G10 scales are not only attractive, but quite grippy. The blade arrived razor sharp, slicing paper and hair as if it was endowed with magic. This knife supplants my previous favorite EDC... the Spyderco PM2 with CPM 35N, which I condedered the perfect EDC. This exclusive absolutely rocks!

An Excellent Value
Cody D. on Oct 15, 2018

Purchased this knife because I wanted to try a Yojimbo 2 and M4 steel. Very pleased with this sprint run. Didn't cost much more than the standard version, came razor sharp, has perfect fit & finish.

A real gem!
Solomon l. on Oct 15, 2018

Been waiting for the yojimbo in the natural g-10. The m-4 steel is as bad ass as ever! One of my favorite EDC knives.

Yojimbo 2 greatness!
Shawn C. on Oct 12, 2018

Guy's, I have to say hand's down this is my favorite Y-2 out of the 5 that I own. What a perfect fit and finish, the color of the scales with that wicked style M4 steeled wharncliffe blade is an eye catcher for sure. Out of all the BHQ collaborations with the natural G10 Spyderco's this was the best so far IMHO. Michael Janich, and Spyderco have a real winner here. Thanks Blade HQ, and Spyderco for bringing a great EDC to market.
