Al Mar Osprey - 1.625" AUS 8 Blade - Abalone Handle

Perhaps the classiest gentleman's folder of all time, the Osprey series has been revamped and reintroduced by AMK. Made in their Seki City, Japan factory, the Ospreys have some of the finest fit-and-finish I've ever seen in production knives. The photo does not do these knives justice, in fact, they rival many of my custom folders which cost several times as much as these sell for.

I've found that smaller knives tend to be harder to close, especially for larger hands, but the Osprey solves the problem with its forward-position lock release. Each Osprey is supplied with a high quality leather pouch embossed with the Al Mar logo. At less than an ounce in weight (knife and pouch combined) you'll hardly notice the Osprey in your pocket - that is of course until you need it. And though I said this was a gentleman's folder, it's also a great knife for the lady in your life. Jeff

    Useful Pocket Jewel

    Posted by RJ de Pedro on Nov 14th 2011

    This truly fine ultra-compact folder is a beautiful tool that I always look forward to carrying and handling. It fits in my watch pocket, on my jeans or slacks, and the thin and very sharp blade is excellent for detail work or cutting anything up to heavy-grade cardboard. The Al Mar quality is striking in a knife of this size, and the abalone scales are impressive. An amazing little everyday warrior.
