By popular demand KaBar is now offering the D2 Extreme Fighting Knife in a fully plain edge blade.
Brand new directly from Ka-Bar Knives.
Blade: Black coated, wear resistant D2 high carbon tool steel has been saber ground for toughness. This version comes with a plain cutting for clean slicing performance, good utility and ease of sharpening. A straight spine terminates in the famous clip point delivering enhanced piercing capabilities while retaining a high level of toughness. The black coating provides needed corrosion resistance while the D2 will hold a razor like edge.
Handle: The tang of the blade is wrapped in a grippy Black Kraton G handle that is nearly indestructible and all but impervious to the elements. A gray powdered metal guard offers additional protection from slipping onto the blade while a metal holed pommel makes the knife very well-balanced and provides an improvised hammer tool in a pinch.
Sheath: This knife comes with a rugged Glass-filled Nylon Sheath with MOLLE compatible nylon backing for multiple secure carry options.
D2 Tool Steel: D2 is a cold work tool steel that has been used as a die cutting steel since WW II. With a high chromium content for a tool steel (10-13%) D2 offers greater corrosion resistance than most high carbon steels. With a good combination of toughness, corrosion resistance and wear resistance D2 is a well-balanced, all around knife steel.
