Al Mar Knives
 
Al Mar's Eagle folding knife is a 1997 Award winner for most innovative design. The innovation shows in the Al Mar Pro Clip System-a standard feature on this exciting folder. The knife features a four inch flat-ground blade, is nine inches overall and weighs in at an incredibly light two ounces. These will be offered with a variety of handle materials and blade configurations, but in the first group the handle material is black micarta with no liners plus a metal spacer along the back. There is a double thumb stud for both left and right hand opening. The action is very tight and smooth with no play in the blade.

Pros: Lock Type, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Stronger than it gets credit for.
I have carried this knife daily for a few weeks now in what I would consider medium duty use. I had hesitated to buy one for several years as reviews had the knife pegged as low strength and overpriced for the steel. They were wrong, this knife is great and I rate it way up there with my Endura- sure its not as strong but a very capable cutter none the less. Very thin in pocket and light, you never know its there, but its like having a carving knife on you when you need it. It reaches all the way through the largest of apples and when moving house recently even did some heavy cutting and light prying and still locks up like new. I will definitely be getting my hands on a Falcon (for less fright factor). Also easy one hand closing which no one talks about. Sharp out of the box and a better example of AUS 8 with a good hard heat treat. Also makes a great boning knife in a pinch.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
Great EDC knife.
This knife won't weight you down and it is so thin that you forget it's there until you need it. I really like the ease of opening and closing, plus the solid lock. The clip is one of my favorites, it stays where you clip it until needed and then slides out without snagging anything. The blade came very sharp and ready to work.
