Doesnít quite make it
Wiliam S.
I have a couple of Al Mar collaborated Kershaw knives. I really like the others but this one just doesnít quite make it. The main thing that isnít up to par with this knife is the flipper. It is almost impossible to open the knife . The flipper is at a bad angle and will just not open. The frame lock is not accessible enough to be able to close it with one hand. I would not recommend the purchase of this knife for those reasons. Iím sorry because I really wanted to like the knife.
I really want to love this knife

Out of all the kershaw Al Mar knives, this one is my favorite size and blade style and the sculpted finger grooves in the scales are really nice. However, more thought needs to be given to the access to the frame lock. This thing is difficult to close with one hand and it is due to the minimal exposure of the frame lock in relation to the front scale. The flipper is sometimes difficult to engage as well, but I'm ok with that for the lower profile. All of the AM knives are screaming deals when purchased at BHQ sale pricing.
