I went to a local brick and mortar knife shop and saw a selection of knives from Al Mar. The prices shocked me, so I asked the proprietor what made them so special. After a fairly lengthy discussion of the pedigree and materials, I opted to purchase this little beauty.

I have never had a more useful everyday blade. The edge retention is unparralelled, and you'd be amazed at all the tasks this little guy is perfect for. Even more surprising is how comfortable it is to hold and use. I lost my first S.L.B. in a motorcycle accident, and though I've had many knives of a similar size, and for decidedly less money, I didn't hesitate for an instant to replace this one. I have yet to find its equal.

The Al Mar SLB is a knife that will do a surprisingly large number of cutting chores for its size. In fact, the only real limitation on this knife is blade length, so any chore than needs a long blade would be difficult but when you consider the jobs a typical personal carry knife is used for, long blade length is not a necessity.

As for sharpness, this knife is flat ground and very sharp! The liner lock clicks into place with a reassuringly loud snap, letting you know the safety of your fingers is well guarded. the blade is almost as wide as it is long so the shearing potential of the knife is very good. The blade is shaped with a rise toward the back where your thumb can be placed for increased pressure on the cutting material and it has even been designed in such a way that the knife can be gripped in a "choked up" hold safely. The thick Micarta scales over stainless liners make for a frame that will last a lifetime. The pocket clip can double as a money clip.

Al Mar has been known for their quality for years, the SLB is yet another success.
As a tool, I am able to carry this all the time without even noticing it. Once needed though,
it is always handy, strong, and sharp.

Excellent quality,fit and finish. A great little EDC for those that want a very small knife.

About 4 3/4" long with a 1 7/8" blade just under 1/8" thick. The blade is made from AUS-8 steel which is good mid range quality. Mine came perfectly centered and quite sharp. It has the best jimping ive ever seen. Its very fine but sharp without being uncomfortable.very grippy both in the finger choil and thumbramp.excellent! The single side thumbstud works well and is removeable for sharpening. The blade detent is excellent as well.

The handle is made from smooth G-10 and a single stainless steel liner/lock. It is pinned together so it cant be disassembled but the blade pivot is very smooth without play in any direction and has been for years. No adjustment necessary.The liner locks up securely without play at about 65%.

The handle is quite comfortable but its very small,offering a three and a half finger grip for my large hand. Although the grip is secure and comfortable when choked up on the choil and thumbramp,deploying the blade without dropping is a challenge. With practice it gets easier tho and i am able to flick the blade open quickly. I just have to be deliberate.Those with smaller hands will probably find it more agreeable.

The pocket clip is right hand tip down only and works well tho i removed mine and just carry loose in pocket. Its just too small for a clip IMO.

My detent ball seems to catch on the liner while closing. Its not a major problem but it is a bit of aggravation. I have to be sure the blade is clear of the detent before releasing the liner and fully closing the blade. Im not sure if this is common to all of them or just a defect with mine.

Overall its a great little knife.

Excellent little knife. High quality and very sharp. A bit smaller than I expected but overall this is a great little knife with excellent blade quality and lightweight. It was my first AL MAR knife and I am considering more based on the excellent quality of this one.

Owned this knife for well over a year now, and it still looks like new. Easy to carry, highly durable, and the craftsmanship is incredible! It's fairly basic in it's design - no silly hoopla. Nicest small knife I own by a wide margin. One of the best of many name-brand knife purchases I've made over the years. If you're on the fence, get off it, and buy this knife!
