Cons: None
The Masterpiece of KA-BAR!
The one I'm holding in my hand may seem to be the ONLY KA-BAR D2 available here in Japan. I've tried to purchase one thru various sellers but no one has it in stock unless, I order from the sellers in the U.S.(But the the price is ridiculously costly). Fortunately enough, I happened to have found one and without hesitation or second thoughts, I made a buy. Finally in my hand, I absolutely love and adore this knife. In terms of the outer appearance of the knife that is very tactical as well as intimidating, durability, versatility and maneuvability, I have nothing to complain about and I know this baby will do what she is supposed to when tough times come. As many have said already, the blade is deadly sharp, the handle is of synthetic material and over all, well-balanced in weight. This is THE Masterpiece of all KA-BAR knives!

K-bar D2 steel
Nice knife for the price. The steel is not the usual one which makes it be above the rest. Coating is always an issue but is does not do that bad. In general a good one.
