Al Mar Buzzard ivory Micarta front-lock. It is near mint without the box or sheath but it does have a felt pouch. It is really mint with very light marks on the bolster and it has not been sharpened. The blade is 3-5/8" and it is 4-3/4" closed. Model 1006 is a early Al Mar not a current one.

It has the exceptional, high carbon, stain-resistant steel RS 30 which was developed especially for Masahiro Cutlery in Seki, Japan. Get it before it is gone!

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.
