AM5HDBV: Eagle Heavy Duty, Drop Point Blade
Al Mar Knives
 
Introducing Al Mar's Eagle Heavy Duty model. Built for the individual that carries the Eagle Ultralight for their "EDC" and wished they could have a tougher version with the same features as their SERE 2000. Well, here it is, the revamped Eagle "HD Heavy Duty. The "HD" weighs in at only one ounce more than the Ultralight version, it has skeletonized heat treated 400 series stainless steel liners, G-10 scales, adjustable action, dual thumstuds and Al Mar's reversible/removable pocket clip system which attaches through the lanyard hole. Just as the Eagle Ultralight is very easy to carry and disappears in your pocket, so does the Eagle Heavy Duty. They took the same great profile and slim design and added strength. The Eagle Heavy Duty will be your next favorite "EDC" or "Every Day Carry" knife.

Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Handle Feel
Pricey, but beautiful
I am a woodworker and always have a sharp, comfortable knife in my pocket, with a VG-10 blade because I need to toughness and edge retention. I love this knife. I'd prefer it with the Micarta but they don't put my preferred blade together with anything but G10 plastic handles.Unfortunately this $200 pocket knife isn't backed up by appropriate (any, so far) support from Al Mar - the screw-rivet that the blade pivots on fell off and was lost, and so far I am unable to get a response from Al Mar Knives in my search for a replacement.

Nice slim folder, but...
First off, this is my fifth Al Mar, but I must say the fit and finish are not as good at my others. More specifically, the liners are not ground evenly in some spots, nor is the g10 at the lock button/release. Also, there is a slight back and fourth blade play. It's minor, but you notice every time you cut through something hard or substantial. Lastly, not in love with the single pocket clip mount screw. No matter how tight you get it, the pocket clip will shift from side to side if there's enough pressure. Overall, I like Al Mar a lot, but the fit, finish and lock-up should be better on this Eagle HD.

Great knife
That al mar only made only these with a talon blade had kept me from buying one of these for a while. So I jummped on it when I saw it with a drop point and VG10. It would be great if Al Mar switched the eagle, falcon, and hawk lines to vg10, it seems like using AUS8 is the only thing anyone every complains about on these knives. The fit and finish are amazing. Smoothest back lock I have ever had out of the box and I figure that can only get better. Running my finger nail across the back of the handle It feels one continuous surface. The only bad thing I can say is I wish the blade had been stamped maid in Japan instead of having the sticker. Hardly a real issue and Knife Center's pics made it clear that was the case.
