Thanks, demoncase and JakeXman.
I guess I’m back to wanting one again!...kinda. I don’t buy many knives anymore, but there’s still some on my proposed list...
It just depends on how you use it, or if you're the kind of guy that drops their knife a lot. I used my first Yo 2 as a box knife for a good year and never had an issue, but then my S90V version somehow chipped the tip and I have no idea how or when (I suspect my son did it lol). The good news is if/when it happens you can just profile the spine down a bit to fix it and then the top will be stronger and less likely to chip again.
On second thought, I’m not sure that the Yo2’s tip is any different, in terms of being needle-pointy, from the Military’s, or the PM2’s and PM3’s tips (except its blade is HG), and I carry and use those all the time.
OTOH, I could be wrong. I’ve never handled a Yo2. Are they about the same in terms of the strength/fragility ratio?
