99% Perfect
I'm on foot in The Adirondacks, and have been attacked by a mangy Pitbull dog with no collar. This knife is solid, light in my arthritic hands, EXTREMELY sharp, doesn't slip even in the rain. The fit and finish is 100%. KA-BAR is a true man's fighting knife. This specimen is true to form. 7" of terror for the next attack. I docked 1% for the VERY tight sheath. It will break in, but hopefully KA-BAR will bring us a sheath ready to go. BEST money I ever sent on a knife, period.

My #1 knife for my go bag
I am so pleased with this knife that I have two of them. They arrived razor sharp and they hold their edge. I have several upper end pocket knives from Queen with blades of D2 steel and they are by far the best in their class. For the money you will not find many knives in their price range of this quality.

KABAR D2 Bad Mofo
Great knife! I have had a 5" KaBar since my Vietnam Nam days and this D2 will replace my old, reliable veteran as a general purpose outdoor/camping knife. Very sharp out of the box. I like the way it looks and feels in the hand. The leather sheath is somewhat cheesy for a knife meant for hard use and that is why a 4 instead of a 5 rating.
