Cons: Blade Sharpness
Excellent knife, poor customer service
I love this knife. Fit and finish are beyond compare, nobody else really comes close. Cons are the edge of the steel liner is sharp against your hand, I wish they could have beveled or sanded it down some. I took a file to the liner around the top of the handle, where the thumb sometimes rests. The big con (and why I have stopped recommending this knife, or any Al Mar product) is their lack of customer service. Once a year I send in all my knifes for sharpening. I send out my Benchmades, my Zero Tolerance and Kershaws, my Bucks and I take my SpyderCo's in to be sharpened since I live in Colorado. SpyderCo, Benchmade and ZT/Kershaw are all excellent. But with Al Mar, I can't even get them to return my emails, let alone sharpen my knife. I've heard they charge $15 to do it, too, unlike the other companies that do it for free and ship it back to you on their dime. Will I ever buy another Al Mar? No Way!
