KA-BAR D2 EXTREME has elite steel for superior cutting and edge retention.

Cutting tests prove that D2 is one of the toughest steels used in knife making.

Results show that the D2 Extreme Fighting / Utility knife cuts twice the amount of media as a standard carbon steel knife.

In the C.A.T.R.A. Cutting Test, the D2 scored 300.6 mm, far exceeding its closest competition of only 168.8 mm.

This knife features an epoxy powder coated full tang D2 steel blade with a HRC hardness rating of 59-60CR that has been flat ground for better edge retention.

The knife blade is a straight edge clip point manufactured by popular demand.

The Extreme has an overall length of 12" with a blade length of 7".

Knife is made exclusively in Olean, New York, U.S.A. and proudly bears the KA-BAR brand.

The knife comes with a Molle compatible KA-BAR / black hard shell plastic sheath constructed to be resistant to salt water and provides a hard surface which protects the knife during use in rough terrains.

The D2 Extreme is also offered as a combo blade with three sheath options, the Ballistic Nylon / Cordura sheath with front storage pocket, model (1281) ,with a black leather sheath, model (1283) and (1282) with hard plastic sheath.

The D2 Extreme has grown to be one of our most popular fixed blade knives among our military, emergency professionals, sportsmen, and collectors alike.

One of a handful of machines like it in the world, the CATRA tester uses controlled pressure, stroke length, number of cycles and a certified sand-impregnated paper to determine the sharpness and edge-holding capabilities of a blade. 

* CATRA stands for Cutlery and Allied Trades Research Association.
