AM5HDBTV: Eagle Heavy Duty, Talon 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: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening
Great but needs improvement badly.
Very nice blade, very nice handle. Not so nice opening studs and comical pocket clip. The "ambi" thumb studs constantly remove threads and/or get caught on pocket interior. Clip is secured by one screw, this does NOT prevent rotation, needs to be tightened, loc-tite is not an answer. Cheaper kershaw collaborative knife looks to have solved both with changes to both. $34 vs. $200?? Come on Al Mar. Update and make your knife as perfect as it could be and do not rest on your previous laurels. Update, update, update.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: Ease of Opening, None
Nice, but not that nice.
First of all this is a good daily carry knife. Slim, light, and sturdy. I purchased this particular knife to replace a Buck 110. I loved my Buck 110 (still do) but the buck knife had some draw backs that made it less than ideal for daily carry; first it was heavy, required two hands tow open, no pocket clip, 420 stainless steel that seemed to dull quickly. This Al Mar knife address all the issues I had with the Buck 110; light weight, one handed ambidextrous opening, good pocket clip, razor sharp VG10 steel that holds a great working edge. Just to give you a size comparison, when this Al Mar knife is closed it literally has the exact same profile as my Buck 110. The slim thickness carries well in the pocket all day. Lock up is very sold with only the slightest wiggle side to side. Blade profile is handy and works well for field dressing medium sized and small game. The reason I did not give this knife 5 stars is because of how rough the opening was initially. This knife was almost $200, for that price I was disappointed with how gritty the action felt when opening. The knife has smoothed out with use and is now smoother, but not as smooth as the Buck or some of my Cold Steel or SOG brand knives. Another cheap look to the knife is the fact that the words "Al Mar" are very lightly etched into the blade and then painted over, the paint quickly smeared off with use. Final notes, this is a good knife and it does a great job address all the reasons I wanted to replace the Buck 110, but for a little more effort Al Mar could have made a great knife by simply smoothing out the opening and taking a little more pride in putting their name on the blade.
