Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
Cons: None
Exceptional knife
The D2 extreme is a modern variation of a highly successful combat knife design. Put very simply: it is robust, highly corrosion resistant, razor sharp and stays that way. Excellent weight distribution, balance and finish. Grip feels secure under all conditions. If I were to select a combat/survival knife for standard issue to infantry it would be the D2 - the ultimate evolution of the original Ka-Bar marine combat knife.

Last knife ill ever have to buy
Great knife, I have had the knife for just over a year and still has a razor edge on it. It proved extremely helpful during the elk hunting trip to the Colorado wilderness. This knife was surprisingly light. The sheath has great retention and is very well made. After owning this knife I don't see any reason why I would ever need to buy a knife again. Great job Ka-Bar

Pros: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Finish, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
It is not an excessive knife.
As soon as I got home, I hacked two limbs from a small oak tree in my front yard. I could have taken the tree down in 10 more minutes. Love the handle. The edge was as sharp as it needs to be. If you need something sharper, buy a scalpel.
