AL MAR KNIVES COLLECTOR'S CLUB
Almar knive collectors wanted.
Well, if you’ve gotten this far, you must be serious about Al Mar Knives. I know I am! For a long time now, I’ve wanted to kick off this idea of a Collectors Club based on one of the most prolific designers and maker of high quality knives! I think with your help we can Make this happen. My first effort will be to get my extensive brochure and price list on to this website. I think this will extend the general knowledge about AMK to more people. The old photo brochures are high quality and full of all kinds of information. The price lists are a method of determining dates of introduction and approximate discontinuation of other models. The next section about fakes and copies will help those of you expanding your collections to stay away from the questionable knives that are for sale out there. On my list of things to do is to set up a forum for AMK fans so that they can ask questions and share information about AMK. I hope to put together some articles based on my extensive collection of Al Mar Knives to help collectors identify variations and relative time lines for the introduction of some of the knife models. And maybe a future possibility of approaching Al Mar Knives to see if they might make a special run of knives for us! Initially I would like to gather information on people interested in an Al Mar Collectors Club. E-mail addresses and names to start and from there, see where it takes us. No membership dues to begin with. Please send me your name and e-mail address, then any comments or suggestions on what you would like to see in a club of this type.
As you may have already noticed, I am trying to gather information on Al Mar the man. I feel that he has led a wonderful life and the stories should be shared. A book on his experiences and his interaction with others as well as his impact on the knife industry is long overdue.
