Thanks Andy!  The little Abalone with the snap clip was my first Al Mar knife.  I was so impressed by the little thing that I wanted to collect all of them.  I ran across someone selling the engraved ones just by chance.  It took me several months to buy up his collection.  He had some matching Hawks and I snagged three of them before they were all gone.

Love the Ospreys set

Good looking knives, indeed

Comment by David Megnin on September 4, 2012 at 21:00

I finally got the rest of the Ospreys I've been obsessing over.  I'm pleased with the set.  I even got the discontinued Briar Wood Burl.  :D

LOL!  That's a fact.  You aren't kidding about needing the support group.  

..."Hi, my name is David and I haven't bought a knife in three days"  [applause around the room] ;)

My wife is in AA and if I told her how hard it is for me to not buy every nice knife I see, she would make me go with her.  ;)

LOL! I know what you are saying.  I have a thing for swing guard and melon knives.  I have to stay off of ebay as there is always a melon knife there.  I have many of the melon knives.  Case is sending me one too.  LOL!  We need to start a support group and Jan can be our group leader.

Comment by David Megnin on August 29, 2012 at 12:09

Yeah, they are like tiny little works of art.  I can't stop buying them.  ;-)

Comment by Clint Thompson on August 29, 2012 at 12:01


Thanks for the pictures.  These are great little knives.  The only Al Mar I own is the belt buckle.

Comment by David Megnin on August 29, 2012 at 12:01

I'm having trouble stopping getting these little knives.  I just got the Black Micarta and Mother of Pearl and just ordered an Osprey and a Hawk with Briar Wood scales.  I think the Briar Wood has been discontinued.

Al Mar Ospreys:  Honey Jigged Bone, Stag, Black Pearl, Cocobolo and Abalone.

Comment by David Megnin on August 17, 2012 at 21:14

I just added a couple more Ospreys to my collection.  From Left to Right:  Cocobolo, Black Pearl, Abalone, Stag and Honey Jigged Bone.  The one in the Abalone with the clip is my keychain EDC.  ;-)

Comment by David Megnin on August 11, 2012 at 18:19

Thanks Clint.  I just ordered two more in Black Pearl and Cocobolo from the same guy I got the bone and stag ones from.  I'm trying to clean him out as paydays permit.  ;-)  I'll post pics of the new ones when they come in next week.

Great looking knife.

The image is 'The Warriors Edge', cool design.....

Comment by Gregory.J on June 15, 2012 at 5:57

This original Al Mar print t shirt(slightly worn) was a steal on ebay at $300, yikes!! I'd like to clarify that I took the image but not the t shirt!

Comment by Gregory.J on June 15, 2012 at 5:34

Would like to add mint condition Eagle of same vintage to turn into a safe queen, any idea what I could reasonably expect to pay????

Comment by Gregory.J on June 15, 2012 at 5:32

I think it was a bargain, it appears to have the original edge. Good thing about used knives- they don't become safe queens...

Comment by Gregory.J on June 15, 2012 at 5:29

Closed view, same knife...

Comment by Gregory.J on June 15, 2012 at 5:28

Got this 5" vintage Eagle folder with Ivory Micarta Scales on the weekend off fleabay- a $50 special. My first older Al Mar, love the steel, probably Aus8- no wobble, no worries...Question - is Micarta addictive?

Comment by Al Cave on October 15, 2011 at 21:13

I have a few AMKs. A Sire. a tanto(cant remember model 12" blade) and a monster Kokarie style, Quest I think. A couple folders but all Seka.
