Al Mar aesthetic for a steal
Sean C.
Nice thin, slicy blade. Great ergonomics in the handle. Fit and finish was fine for the price.
A great knife
Sean E.
It dose it's job of being a tool and cutting it also has style and a sleek feel the g-10 handle scale with red back spacers gives it contrast to the almost mat black stainless steel. Ohh and it sharpens very easily.
Looks good, but meh
Michael J.
Beautiful knife for the price, but meh. Movement felt sandy, and flipper tab felt too small. Blade shape seems useless other than as an envelope opener. Just did not see the point of carrying this one.
Current EDC

I'm a relative newcomer to knives and was looking for a knife to complement my Spyderco Ambitious. At first I was a bit hesitant due to the AM-3's longer, thinner blade, but it was complementary to the Spyderco's stouter blade so I gave it a shot. Pretty quickly, the Kershaw Al Mar AM-3 became my favorite EDC knife for a few reasons. It's relatively inexpensive, so I'm not too worried about losing it. It gets out of the way in my pocket due to the thin, lightweight design and deep carry clip. It covers my daily needs well, slicing through cardboard, plastic, tape, and food with ease.

What would I change? I'd love to see a skeletonized liner lock and slightly textured G10 scales on both sides for decreased weight and increased grip. The clip could be a little deeper carry, so it would completely disappear in my pocket. I'd also lose the thumb studs which aren't really functional for me, which would clean up the design. Icing on the cake would be an upgrade choice with higher quality steel.

Overall, a very recommended knife. After using it, I'm highly considering purchasing it's big brother, the Kershaw Al Mar AM-4.
Very good

This knife is very good for the price, I have only had it for 1 day so keep that in mind. One side of the handle is g-10, the other is stainless, I wish both were G-10, that way they could save more weight, but it still comes in very light, good buy.
