Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
KA-BAR D2 EXTREME IS A SUPERB KNIFE CHOICE! D2 steel choice is excellent, edge retention very well, will slice **** straight out of the box. (My buddy dropped the knife right on its tip on our cement tiled floors in my apartment- the thud was heart stopping, checked the tip, barely dented- will still stab into flesh, wood, metal, etc: greatly.) Very strong, durable blade. Use Diamond Sharpener to sharpen blade. Kraton G handle feels solid and tough, textured like gripping rubber, won't slip out your hands when wet, oily, sweaty, nothing- it seems to only grip better. Handle is heavier than the blade- which is great for swift and fast blade manuverability.The Butt Cap, or as I like to call it "The Thumper Cap" LOL! Made from 1095 high carbon steel you can feel the solid strength in the Thumper Cap. It's more strong and solid than any other KA-BAR Knives Thump Cap (unless it's made from 1095 or better.)You'll be Glad you purchased this Knife- Guaranteed!
