    Knives made with D-2 steel require diamond or ceramic sharpeners. Never use a bench sander or bench grinder, as bass bomber pointed out, because they will ruin a factory-sharp edge.

    I'd recommend a medium or coarse stone and some patience.

    I wouldn't use the Work Sharp or a bench grinder for a Ka-Bar as it can ruin the edge. I use an Arkansas stone that I got at Menard's to sharpen mine.

    I use an E-Z lap diamond sharpener and a Japanese water stone on mine.

    Work Sharp Sharpening Tool. I haven't used it to sharpen a K-Bar but it works for just about any sharp edge!

    Good question, considering the size of the blade I suggest the Smith's Tri hone.
