The Yokai has returned! Veteran Ironside Edge Works owners will recognise this unique and scary looking knife from past years, and with some slight tweaks to the design it is now available again.

The main feature of the Yokai is its distinctive short, curved, Hook-like blade which can be devastatingly effective on soft tissues. Whether it’s a forward grip slashing cut, or a reverse grip drag, it will cleave through tissue with ease. The single edge point is robust, while still being made from slightly thinner stock to keep the edge fine.

The Yokai has been updated mainly in the handle. The very ergonomic and neutral handle allows the user to hold the knife in a multitude of grips, forward or reverse, even reverse edge-in are all comfortable for the average hand-size. This makes it extremely versatile for those with an adaptive methodology.

This is a ready to purchase Tier 2 Custom Yokai. The blade has been finished in Matte Black Cerakote, contrasting nicely with the polished Copper Liner and Karelian Birch Burl handle scales. The grain of this wood is dark in appearance with light brown to orange tinted flecks shooting through it like flames. The handle is pinned with Carbon Fiber pins which blend into the wood nicely, and the whole scale is finished with a grooved texture for added grip. The wood burl is finally buffed to a satin finish, higgling the grain nicely. The Yokai comes with a Full Kydex Sheath and Soft Loop combo.

You can additionally add a Blunt Trainer version with your order as an option for a slight discount, ensuring we can make the trainer to match the live blade as close as possible.
