Having all the benefits of Ka-Bar's 7" Fighting/Utility fixed blade knife but with tough D2 tool steel, the D2 Extreme Fighting/Utility knife is a tool you can rely on. The durable D2 steel in the traditional clip point blade shape has a black epoxy powder coating to prevent corrosion and maintain a discreet non-reflective surface. The clip point blade excels as piercing with it's strong and controllable tip while the ample blade length allows for slicing and serrated use cuts. Kraton G thermoplastic handles are comfortable in hand while providing excellent purchase on the knife. Black powder coated pommel and hand guard are no only attractive but provide an additional layer of safety, preventing any foreign objects from coming into contact with the users hands. Includes a GFN belt sheath for secure field carry.

In addition to the Ka-Bar fixed blade, be sure to check out the folding knives that are sure to impress at Blade HQ!

Amazing USA Knife
Jeff L. on Jun 26, 2020

This 7" Fixed blade is a beautiful thing. The handle is amazing and with a signifigant pommel at the end and half hilt at the grip front, this will not fall out of your hand. The tang is a rat tail deign and is full in that it goes to and through the pommel. The pommel also has a lanyard hole and it and the half hilt are powder coated gray to help you see where to grip in low light. The D2 blade, while almost stainless, is black coated for extra rust proofing and stealth. D2 a great tool steel that keeps an edge better than 1095 and is strong like bull, so this is perfect for this knife. And when it comes to fixed blades, this 7" blade is not flimsy and yet the knife due to the rat tail full tang is very light for its size. The combat history of this knife is apparent and the extreme truly is the next generation for the classic Ka-Bar. If you like larger fixed blades, you will love this knife.

Best 7" Ka-Bar
Marc M. on Apr 13, 2018

I've had mine for many years and it has held up wonderfully. I've had 1095 Ka-Bars that would rust up over night if you didn't keep the edge protected. The D2 steel, while not stainless, is much less rust prone. The D2 also holds an edge longer while still being easy to sharpen. I had some concern about the D2 being more brittle than 1095. I haven't babied mine at all and the edge hasn't chipped. I'd buy another one if Ka-Bar would make a D2 model without the serrations.

good but not for hard use
isaiah s. on Jan 11, 2021

as i bought this knife from knifecenter.com they wouldnt let my review go through but none the less here is my review. this says fighting knife i never used it for fighting i hit this thing against wood it did pick up alot of chips and it went pretty dull it is ok though because this is d2 steel the only two problems with this knife are the steel and the serrations otherwise it makes a pretty good knife
