Mar served in a Special Forces Reserve unit and in the late 1950s volunteered to serve in Vietnam with a special project using all-Asian Special Forces soldiers. The project was run from Okinawa where the 1st SFGA had a forward deployed battalion stationed and support assets. Mar was a non-commissioned officer. After serving in the Army, Mar earned a master's degree in industrial design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. His masters thesis was building and launching a working 2 man submarine, upon graduating he went to work for an industrial design firm in Los Angeles in 1967.

Mar went on to become a packaging designer and eventually the head of knife design for Gerber Legendary Blades in 1968. Gerber's head designer had retired and Pete Gerber gave Mar the task of coming up with an aluminum handle for a kitchen knife. Gerber thought the project was very successful and offered Mar the position of design chief.

In 1979, Mar left Gerber to form his own company: Al Mar Knives. The knives were manufactured in Seki City, Japan in a 1000-year-old sword making facility.

Al Mar died in 1992 from an aneurysm. The color guard provided for his memorial service was drawn from the reserve Special Forces company then stationed at the Portland Air National Guard base. Mar had supported the unit for some time and was an honorary member of the company.
Would be nice to see this knife, picture when you have time.
Thank you

About a month ago I bought a kershaw cryo and I love it. I know its made in China. But it is really nice and very sturdy. I researched them for a few months and at walmart it was 30 bucks. I like it enough I will be buying a few more and giving them to my kids and a couple for future use/trade.

Thanks from Thedutchman

I usually carry a Protech TR-4. When I carry a smaller knife it's a Protech Runt.

Just lately, I've become very fond of Kershaw Emerson designs. The Wave clip that catches on my Wrangler pocket seam and deploys the blade is pretty handy. Have a 6054 and 6055 so far. Carrying the 54 as the 55 exceeds the blade length limit here in Michigan.

I carry a Gerber Paraframe 2 with a serated edge, I have carried it everyday for the 3 years, and it's held up extremely well. It's was used everyday for 7-8 months when I worked roofing/construction, it has been used as a can opener and eating utensil, wire stripper, prybar, I used it as a hammer once or twice. The blade is a little lose but other than that it's been a great knife, and well worth the $30 I spent on it.

For the last 10 years or so...

Benchmade Presideo 5000 auto opening with drop point serrated edge.

Great knife. Use it for everything and holds up well.

Might want to check local laws on this. Some places are stupid about the auto opening part.
