Al Mar Knives Payara AM-PA2 Folder - VG-10 Blade - Black Textured G-10 Handle

The Payara is an aggressive design for the serious outdoorsman, named after the elusive and vicious saber-toothed fish found in South American rivers that feeds on Piranha by impaling them on fangs up to six inches in length! Building on the proven Al Mar liner lock system, pillar construction, and flow through design, the Payara adds an aggressive new blade for maximum cutting power and penetration. Dual thumbstuds and stainless steel clip complete the package.

    This Payara is Serious

    Posted by CelticCross74 on Jun 10th 2015

    First Ill get the negative out of the way. This knife needs a flipper. There. Done. Thats everything negative I can say about it. Now on to the good. Do any of you out there remember the Kershaw Lahar? That is what this knife reminds me of and why I am giving it 5 stars. The blade is HUGE and perfectly ground Seki City VG10 just like the old Lahar. G10 is perfectly hand finished backed up by full stainless steel liners.

    This is obviously an old design as it is missing a lanyard hole. While the full stainless liners are plenty strong they are not as thick as the liners on the SERE but seem to match the old Lahar. Nothing wrong with it the lock up is still bank vault strong just thought Id point that out.

    I love the blade design on this beast! Talk about being able to draw cut! Penetrates like crazy and is pretty intimidating to boot. A longer thumb ramp would have been nice but the ramp it has is sufficient.

    The Payara is a golden example of the pre overbuilt school of design thought. Its actually pretty refreshing that such a big pocket knife does NOT weigh 10 ounces for once!
