Three screws into a countersunk pocket clip? Must have been afraid that thing would come off! I like the blade style, but IMO the price doesn't justify a plain-jane titanium flipper in D2 - even if it is "ultralight". This is what you buy when you have better options, but have been getting bored and have money to burn.

37g on the 2.75" blade. Really tempted me since I like them light, but the price and clip are the deal killers.

So what do we call the opposite of a deep carry clip? Shallow carry? High carry?

Anyone else getting a Ken Onion Leek or Eros vibe from this knife? 😃

Are these what replaces the now discontinued Hawk and Eagle ultralights? Those were classics.

Even better choice. I'd like to get my hands on the #15 Boy's Knife but sans bail & chain. Really like the look of their micarta.

Oh yes it's very nice! Are you a convert to slipjoints, like I have become? I have bought a few, mostly as collectables (but intend to carry the Bull Nose): Benchmade Proper 318 and 319, Civivi Rustic (I cut myself each time I handle it - so it's going to stay a safe queen), Kizer Lundquist Feist, Three Rivers Manufacturing Atlas, Zero Tolerance 0230 (odd shape, excellent construction, but wanted it as collectable, not going to carry it). The only problem with the GEC knives is their steel, which are not stain resistant and necessitate some maintenance, but that's OK on that price range...

It would be incredibly helpful if Drop made it clear where the knife was made.

It’s an ongoing Drop issue with knives. In this case, it’s stamped “China” on the blade. I know there are quite a few quality knives coming from China right now, but I prefer to buy American made.

WE Knife would sell a comparable product for $50 to $70.

I know knife makers evolve or die, but I am torn wondering if Al himself would approve or not. I guess if the build quality is there then maybe he would be ok or like it. For people complaining about price, Al Mar knives have always been overpriced for the parts, it was the quality of the build you paid for. If these meet that historical quality they are worth the price. That said, my last couple Al Mar knives were lacking in that so I can’t buy without handling the knife I am going to get first. Hope these are great, but in an market where I can’t have free returns I am not even going to consider.

That's kinda always been Al Mar's shtick. Want to spend ~$200 on a knife in AUS-8? Al Mar can help! And not just 20 years ago when AUS-8 was considered good. Today. The made in China and still expensive for materials is relatively new. Previously they were mostly made in Japan, I believe.

All 3 I own are stamped Japan. As far as the high price for the steel used, I don’t care that the LW Falcon and Hawk I own are in AUS8 as they are light duty knives (linerless Micarta scales) and honestly whoever made the blades for Al Mar back then really knew how to heat treat AUS8 and heat treating is critical to steel performance. They strop back to be extremely sharp unless I overuse the edge and even if I do they are easy to hone up again.
