KS1725CB: Junkyard Dog II Composite Blade - G10 Handle
Kershaw® Knives

2008 Composite Blade JYD II, Made in the USA, Designed by Tim Galyean.

The dog in the yard is the Kershaw Composite Junkyard Dog II, a key addition to the 2008 composite blade lineup. It features the rugged look of our popular Junkyard Dog knives, designed by Tim Galyean, but paired with our robust composite blade.

Watch Out. They Bite.

We don’t call them “Junkyard Dogs” for nothing. These knives have a big bark and a loud growl. Bold and built for heavy-duty use, they’re just exactly what knife enthusiasts have been howling for. They’re the made-in-the-USA Junkyard Dog II. They feature a fierce look and sturdy stainless-steel construction for heavy-duty performance each and every time.

The JYD II has light weight G-10 scales attached to a sturdy steel frame. The G-10 offers extremely high mechanical strength and top performance in both wet and dry conditions. Its good looks are enhanced by the JYD signature “riveted-steel” pattern, CNC-machined into the gray G-10. Its larger size is sure to appeal to knife users who want even more bite for their buck.

All the JYDs feature Kershaw’s Flipper opening system, a system so unique that it’s covered by one or more pending or issued US patents. The Flipper is a one-handed, ambidextrous index-finger opening system. The Flipper first builds up pressure, then moves the blade up and out of the handle when the index-finger protrusion is pushed on for easy deployment by either left-and right-handed knife users. A frame lock secures the blade in place, while a removable pocket clip keeps the JYD close at hand.

Even better, all the JYDs are value priced. And that great price is just one more reason they’re sure to appeal to a wide range of knife users who want a tough, versatile knife that’s built for strength and performance—and offers a doggone great look./>

Cons: None
Extraordinary knife
The Junkyard Dog designed by Tim Galyean has been a favorite with many of our customers since its release. Kershaw has released a series of versions and this latest one is spectacular. The KS1725CB features their composite steel giving you the use of CMP-D2 very tough steel for the edge and a softer stainless steel for the rest of the blade for better corrosion resistance and to reduce the cost - plus a copper accent where the two steels come together! So, it works great, is not expensive and looks very cool. What’s not to like about this knife?

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
The bark is load, the bite is big!!
Awesome Tool! Lube and adjust the blade swivel to your taste and use it! I use my knife a lot each day (some would say misuse, and I won't argue) and I'm pretty sure this knife will take it without failure. Well made (USA,USA!!) and gorgeous to boot! It's small enough to clip on my pants pocket and formidable when deployed. Probably will blacken the pocket clip and it's a bit over styled (the clip) for my taste but it is very substantial. Paid for and got it in 24 hours!!

Adequately named
This knife is a fun and intimidating addition to my collection. The opening action is not for beginners but then nothing about this blade is.... It's big enough that in my state I'm required to posess a CWP "which I do" to legally carry it. The lack of serration makes it a purpose driven blade and should not be confused for a work knife. It's G10 handle is grippy and light and the gimping on the fore throw and then thumb stop is grippy and adequate. It is all it claims to be, it is big, bad and scary. Need I say more?
