Blade Show – Al Mar Knives

Saturday, June 1st, 2013


The genesis of the Al Mar Eagle Ultralight goes back to 1984, with the development of the lightest knife possible, with the greatest blade-to-handle ratio. Eventually users asked for something a bit more robust. Al Mar Knives created the Eagle HD in 2012 with heat-treated stainless liners and G10 scales. This year Al Mar chose to incorporate ZDP189, which is the hardest steel available, but keep the overall dimensions and ergonomics of the Eagle. The Eagle HD ZDP incorporates the same heat treated liners (despite assertions by some SSD readers, this is not as common as you would think). The blade itself offers a Rockwell of 64-65 after heat treatment. Al Mar’s ZDP189 is laminated with a softer outside steel and an inner core of the ZDP189 stronger steel, to yield an incredibly strong, yet durable blade.

SHOT Show – Al Mar Knives

Friday, January 18th, 2013

I wanted to take you on a little trip back in time and show you the knife that made Al Mar Knives as a tactical knife brand back in the 80s. Founder Al Mar was a Special Forces Veteran from Viet Nam and created the SERE Folder as a folding variant of the SERE Operator which was designed with input from the famed COL Nick Rowe who suffered 5 years of captivity by the Viet Cong and was assassinated by the New People’s Army in 1989 in the Philippines.


The current SERE Folder features a 3.6″ VG-10 steel blade that has been heat treated and incorporates a liner that has also been heat treated and would make a better blade than many other knife blades.

The knife incorporates a reversible deep carry pocket clip. It also features a flow through design to keep debris from fouling the mechanism. It’s offered in 3 handle covers; UCP, OD and Black with satin or black blades. Also available in a Mini SERE 2000 model with a 3″ blade.

I’d say that this is the knife that started the whole tactical folder craze. If you haven’t checked out Al Mar Knives lately, I suggest you take a look.

Blade Show – Al Mar Knives

Al Mar Knives is displaying a couple of prototype knives in a new material.


Made from Kirinite, a brand new material. It’s so tough, it takes three times as long to grind as ivory! As you can see, it holds the coloration all the way through and, as an inert material is resistant to solvents. But once polished it is both comfortable to the touch as well as durable.

Look for Kirinite soon in many Al Mar Knives designs.


Al Mar Knives for 2012

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

Al Mar Knives has been a mainstay brand since for over 30 years. They will be showing a few products at SHOT Show that should be of interest to SSD readers.

Eagle Heavy Duty
Improving upon the linerless Eagle Ultralight, the Eagle Heavy Duty incorporates heat treated skeletonized stainless liners and steps up to G-10 scales. All of the other features remain, including the light weight pioneered in the Ultralight series: the Eagle Heavy Duty weighs only 1 oz. more than the Eagle Ultralight @ 3 ounces.

SERE 2000 & Mini SERE 2000 with OD or Digital Camo Scales
If you’re as old as me, you’ll remember the AMK SERE knife. It’s still the same great knife made famous in the 1980s at the JFKSWCS SERE School, but now it’s available in OD green or Digital Camouflage scales.

Plus, their whole line, with knives for the job, the field, and the kitchen.
