    'Old School' heavyweight: SERE folder. Definitely it's a 'Fistful of Steel'. Anybody else on the forum into Al Mar?

    Oh yeah! I have that one large and small and the G10 models large and small. Well built knives!

    Your right, CV. The 'collectibility factor' on these blades has gone-up dramatically over the years. Like you, I purchased the brand for the 'quality aspect'.

    I have always admired them but have never purchased one. Due to the lack of knife stores I have also never been able to handle one either. Perhaps I should remedy that. Beautiful knife sir!

    Some of their lean shapes look great. But they missed the train on blade steel. So that’s a pass for me.

    I like the looks of many of the Al Mar knives; especially for me the more 'gentlemen types'. Just haven't pulled a trigger yet. Need to rebuild the financial reserves... ;)

    L'chaim!

    Beautiful collection, CV! Love the bottom blade with the classic red cartouche. The 'green micarta' is beautiful, and sold-me back-then. Some examples have the 'Special Forces' crest, and I wish; that I would have scarfed-one up! When Al Mar's were first-made; there were no 'exotic super-steels' like M390, Sleipner, or S35VN. The top steel was AUS-8, which was then cutting-edge so-to-speak. In recent times, the line was culled way-down after Al's untimely passing. Good stuff, friend! Thumbs-up for Al Mar.

    Absolutely love those with the wood handles!

    EDIT: IS that wood? Or micarta?

    Nice Zt0920, did you black DLC that or is that anodizing?

    Those are micarta, Movie Guy. The bottom two are black G10, I believe.
