Junkyard Dog II
The JYD II is a big, bold, and very distinctive knife
Incredible style. High-performance materials. Super-smooth manual opening. And Kershaw patent-pending Composite Blade technology.
A Composite Blade combines two steels in one blade and enables us to put each steel to work doing what it does best. In this case, we put high-performance Sandvik 14C28N stainless on the spine and most of the blade. With increased nitrogen in the formula, 14C28N provides both good corrosion resistance and high hardness. The cutting edge is high-carbon high-chromium D2 steel. It’s only slightly stain resistant but it provides the razor edge and the easy re-sharpening of high-carbon steel. In time, expect a patina to develop along the edge, which will help protect against corrosion.
Although the JYD II is a big knife, it’s not too heavy and many people like it for every day carrying. The textured G-10 handles provide a non-slip grip, while the handle design keeps your hand in a great cutting position so cutting is always controlled and confident. The JYD II is a manual opening knife with a flipper that lets you open it easily left or right-handed with a pull back on the flipper and a roll of your wrist. A locking liner secures the big-bellied blade in place during use.
May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
There is no mechanical assist, such as SpeedSafe, used to open the folding knife. It opens the classic, old-school way.
Locks the blade open during use; one side of the knife’s steel “liner,” the steel plate to which the handle scales are attached, moves into position behind the blade to securely lock it open.
The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.
A blade composed of several types of steel brazed together in a permanent joint; the technology enables Kershaw to use steel known for edge holding on the edge, strength on the spine for the best of both worlds.
