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.

Love it. Tactically amazing , EDC pretty much a razor blade. Either way it's great. Buy one you won't regret it.
Great EDC and SD

Ergo, ergo, ergo. The egos on this are phenomenal. It took a lot to get this out of my pocket everyday and still wants to crawl in there every once in a while. I would suggest doing some filing in some of the spots to soften up the edges of the g10 and I modded with a forward finger choil but Its a great knife regardless. Lil scared of breaking the tip but I have edc'd this extensively with no bad results. Wish the s90v version would make a return.
All Around Good Knife!

Used as a self-defense weapon or for small tasks/chores are best suited for this knife.
I personally have carried this knife for probably about a year as a simple EDC - It is a bit wide in the pocket but for itís reliability as a self-defense tool and also itís durability, Itís an awesome knife. I still carry this knife on occasions depending on the events/tasks for the day.

Good design, good steel, very sharp out of the box with an always slick deployment with the Spidey hole.

I prefer this to my PM2.

Compression lock, great. Wharncliff blade shape, great. Thin enough in the pocket to not be a nuisance. Fit and finish on my item was what you'd expect form Golden, CO. I'm very satisfied.

I'm not a huge self defense kind of guy so I've been using it as a regular EDC and I love the thing. Razer sharp, sits in your pocket well, opens and closes like a dream, and just looks awesome. My new favorite knife!
Self Defense Tool

If you carry a knife for self defense, (IMHO) there is none better than the Yojimbo 2. Purpose designed and built, I carry one everyday. This knife is best used with a grip where the thumb is placed on the spine of the blade. There is also a martial art (MBC) that goes along with the knife from the knives designer Michael Janich. It's worth checking out.
Not your average EDC

Very nice build quality - aggressive but not coarse G10, open flow construction, liners are nested but substantial. I enjoy the thick blade stock paired with the hollow grind. Beware of drops; blade's point is needle thin. Compression lock accomodates all grips and feels very secure. Satin polished blade, clip, screws, liners, and standoffs are very handsome. All in all, a very cohesive knife design with a high degree of literal and figurative polish, made in America by Americans.
Good Knife

i recently bought this knife, i received it fast from Blade HQ the only thing i did not like about the knife was that it did not come very sharp...it was kind of dull? however i do like the knife for its design and how sturdy it is. I was just a little disappointed that it wasn't razor sharp out the box or anything but i guess its fine but other then that the knife a great, the lock up is nice and smooth and doesn't take to much effort to close it one handed. overall great knife besides it being dull but i might just had gotten a bad apple but don't let that detour you from Spyderco they make great quality knives.
Great Knife
Jonathan S.
Good steel, grippy G10, very ergonomic, and the aggressive wharncliffe blade shape is a great slicer. Love the compression lock. Very quality piece and definitely an eyecatcher to bring out with fellow knife-nuts. A+
Fantastic knife
Mark L.
Everything about it is great- good steel, comfortable, precise tip, looks awesome. The action is a pleasure and it's made in the USA.
Very grippy G10.
Response to Joshua's review

This is really just a response to the other review of this knife. The reviewer states that the knife would not be good in a survival situation. The Yojimbo was designed specifically to be a fighting weapon, it's needle tip and razor-thin edge are built for slashing or penetrating an opponent, not for survival purposes. The description clearly states this. For future buyers, know that this is not a heavy-use knife, it is a knife with a specific purpose and that is to be a defensive weapon, ready only when you need it.
Good but not great ....

Gives "sharp" a whole new meaning. It's like a straight razor. I think a slash from this knife would go all the way through a muscle like warm butter. S30V is amazing steel, and this knife is also really easy to sharpen and takes a seriously keen edge. However it's a little wispy. It's a thin knife, and the blade is paper thin at the tip. The whole knife is just kind of thin and light, not much to it. More of a gentleman's knife or a knife you'd want if you're at work or somewhere where a bigger knife is gonna draw the wrong kind of attention. If you have big hands, this probably isn't the knife for you. Get it for your wife or girlfriend instead.
