Al Mar Warrior with black handle, satin blade and guard. It is mint with the great original sheath and box. The blade is 7" and it is 13-1/2" overall. The knife has never been used but because of the satin blade finish there are several light surface scratches on the guard and the pommel. It hasn't been carried, used or sharpened.

It comes with the original fine leather sheath made by Tex Shoemaker & Son of San Dimas, California. The sheath is black leather. Get it before it is gone!

Battle Blades

Al Mar was working for an industrial design firm in Los Angeles in 1967. Gerber's first designer retired about this time and Al Mar joined Gerber Legendary Blades in 1967 or 68 (American Blade magazine Dec. 1976) after Pete Gerber gave Al the task of coming up with an aluminum handle for a kitchen knife. Pete Gerber thought the project was very successful and offered Al the position of design chief. Did you know that Al is credited with designing the Gerber Mark I.

He left Gerber in 1979 to start Al Mar Knives and he died in October of 1992. Al was 54 years old. The new owners have now discontinued most of the original models and moved to other makers on the remaining models. This leaves the knives made while Al was in control of the company very desirable and collectible! Mar is Chinese for horse.
