They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but this knife is evidence otherwise. The Kershaw Junkyard Dog II is an iteration of customer knifemaker Tim Galyean's popular Junkyard Dog and it pulls out some new tricks.

Like a real junkyard dog, the JYD II is intimidating and packs a big bite. Featuring a hefty 3.6-inch blade that's built for heavy-duty use, the knife is also just small enough to make a great EDC while handling some of the more nuanced tasks.

One of the first things you'll notice on the knife is the outstanding composite blade that uses high-carbon high-chromium D2 steel for the edge and a durable Sandvik 14C28N stainless steel for the spine. This composite blade helps reduce the cost and gives it a nice pop. The pattern on the blade is the two steels blended together with a copper accent.

The handle of the JYD II is nothing to scoff at either. Built with lightweight G-10 scales, the handle is extremely strong with enough grip to keep the knife from slipping in wet conditions.

Using Kershaw's flipper-opening system, the JYD II engages easily with either hand and the roll of a wrist before locking in place with a study liner lock.

Anyone looking for a large folder that won't take a huge bite out of their wallet would be hard-pressed to find something better than the fierce Junkyard Dog II.

Buck Knives Fixed Omni Hunter 12 Pt Knife with Black Handle and Guthook Blade
"What can I say - It's a Buck! Excellent feel and of course very sharp. I have owned many Buck knives over the years (I'm 69) and I have never been disappointed."

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
