Don't know if anyone can shed some light on these Chris reeve Al Mar knives that I have.
They came with paperwork and original packaging but I can't seem to find anything out about them.
On the paperwork under knife, they are called Al Mar Proto but I do not know if this was some one off or whether there was ever a run of this knife.
There are three sizes, small, medium and large and the are a black hollow handle knife with a small area or seration on the blade.
The sheaths and the knives both have the Reeve stam and the Al mar chop and the the blades are also stamped "Proto".
One is marked made in January 1998 and the other two, February 1999.
any help on this would be much apreciated.

CRK made these knives for Al Mar back in 1998 and 1999 and the blade steel was A2. It is difficult to tell from your photos but I doubt they are fakes. The markings on the blade look correct but I have only seen numbered versions, not protos.
They were available in 4, 5.5 and 7.5 inch versions.

MY LARGE SIZE has the AL MAR seperated with the CHOP.. My middle one does not..
I believe the 5.5 inch version was made in 1998 and the 4 and 7.5 inch versions were made in 1999. Does this match with what you have?
sk8n- u are 100% correct.. the 5.5 must have been made first, then he must of contracted CR to do the other in 1999.. All 3 knives resemble CRK HOG STICK which was a limited run.. so i guesss CRK KNives and AL MAR piggybacked on it.. The HOG STICKS are rare i think
If they are fakes then they have faked the boxes from Chris with his stickers on the front and Al mar proto on the side, the cards detailing the knives and the date made (including signatures) as well as the knives, sheaths and the rest of the paperwork.
I will take some better pictures today and get them uploaded.
Does anybody know if the profile of this knife is the same as the tanto Nkonka?
The Sable and the Nkonka are both described as tantos, IIRC. These knives do look very much like a double guard Sable to me.
Just google CHRIS REEVE HOG STICK and look at the pics.. Looks like same knife to me
