This is just a little post showing how well the Yo2 in CPM M4 goes in the kitchen !
My project when I had ordered the Jade Yojimbo2 was to swap the blades with my Carbon Fiber / S90V Yojimbo2, to make a vinegar patina and enjoy a unique CPM M4/ Carbon fiber Yojimbo2. Yeah well… I have done it but the patina. Here is the result. But you know what… As great as … Continue reading Yojimbo2: swapping the blades back and forth.
This is a bud of an article about the BladeHQ exclusive Yojimbo2. At least there is picture. Story will come later in multiple update. I have reviewed the Michael Janich’s Yojimbo2 many time here.

I got two requests for writing that little comparaison hence a lot of users are hesittating between those two radical designs. My Yojimbo2 is a special edition as is my Paramillie 2.

Not too big but not too small with a blade around 3 inches / … Continue reading False Brothers — Wolfspyder and Yojimbo2
The McBee is one of the smallest Spyderco ever produced but as they said “Proof positive that function is a matter of design, not size.” It is in the Dog Tag size. Jan Dirk has written about his Dog Tag here.Go figure the McBee got only a 39mm blade !It really looks like someone has … Continue reading SPYDERCO C236TI – McBEE THE HONEY TRAP.
Why the Swayback is such addictive ?Why it always kicks my favorite folders out from my pocket since I have received it ? The contoured titanium handle is something which is needed to be taken in consideration. In my humble opinion the Swayback’s handle makes all other tactical folders feel flatter. The Swayback is very … Continue reading This Is The Sway ! Part 2 The Swayback Chronicles
A knife and a piece of wood make my day. I can sit and enjoy a good blade taking nice wooden chips. Steel chemistry is important, especially how fine its grain is. Back in the 90’s I have found how a Benchmade in M2HSS was more enjoyable than the same model in ATS-34. How is … Continue reading Pleasure of whittling — Which knife ?
