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 it closest competition of only 168.8 mm.
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.
