    The Al Mar Gunstock is an industrial folder, but is similar to a high level custom folder regarding the accuracy of workmanship. A really enjoyable vintage folder

    Great knife and wow, what a sheath (holster??) I regret that I got into knives after older vintage Al Mars like this went out of production. This is an example of a piece I would pursue based on coolness factor alone.

    Very cool! I'm a big fan of the older Al Mar knives, they are a nice blend of modern and traditional. I've never seen one like yours, though. Thanks for posting!

    I had a Falcon at one time, and wish I still had it so I know the quality you speak of, that is one gorgeus Al Mar!

    ...also, I like that 30-30 shield. My favorite caliber for hunting white-tails.
