Timeless AL MAR™ KNIVES designs meet Kershaw’s precision manufacturing and meticulous fit and finish to bring you updated versions of some of the most iconic AL MAR™ KNIVES.
The AM-5 is the largest of the AM series knives. We updated it with SpeedSafe assisted opening for quick and simple one-handed opening. Just pull back on the flipper. The blade is quality 8Cr13MoV stainless steel with black-oxide coating for an extra measure of blade protection. The front handle scale is G10—crowned and polished for a smooth feel and classy look. The back is pure steel with a sturdy frame lock to keep the blade in position until you release it. The AM-5 also features a deep-carry pocketclip with AL MAR™ KNIVES' red logo emblem.
In addition to a dedication to the original designs, Kershaw kept two things in mind when creating these exciting AL MAR™ KNIVES: quality and value. We are using top-notch materials including top-of-the-line blade steel and real G10 scales. Plus, we’re paying special attention to details. Yet we’re keeping the prices down on these classic knives—which means these brilliant AL MAR™ KNIVES are now readily available to a new generation of knife enthusiasts.
May be used on either manual or assisted opening knives. The “flipper” is a protrusion on the back of the blade that the user can pull back on, or flip, in order to move the blade easily out of the handle.
SpeedSafe® Assisted Opening
Assists you to open any SpeedSafe® knife quickly and easily with a manual push on the thumbstud or pull back on the flipper; built into many Kershaw best sellers.
A portion of the handle (the knife frame) moves behind the blade to lock it into position during use. This is a safety feature of the knife.
The pocketclip is in a fixed position on the knife handle; usually it is positioned for tip-down, right-handed carry, though this may vary.
