Perhaps the most collectible Al Mar collaboration ever made, (less than 100 pieces were made), This model recently sold on another site for $2495, (and the condition was not as good as this one; which is mint.). This knife features heavy duty full tang/tapered tang construction and is 1/4" thick.

Al Mar originally designed knives for Gerber and then formed his own knife company in 1979. His knife designs, (which were made in Seki, Japan by G. Sakai), are extremely collectible. Mar worked with AIK in 1990 on his GPA Auto which we contracted Benchmade to manufacture. We were planning another automatic knife project when he died in 1992 from an aneurysm. Al Mar was inducted in the Cutlery Hall of Fame in 2009.

Bill Harsey is a custom knife maker, designing and crafting one-of-a-kind folding and fixed blade knives. He is best known for his collaboration projects, in which he serves as knife designer for various knife companies. One of Harsey's most significant designs was that of the Yarborough Knife, which is named after Lt. Gen. William P. Yarborough, known as the "father of modern Special Forces." The Yarborough Knife is presented to each graduate of the United States Army Special Forces Qualification Course, with each of these knives possessing its own serial number, and logged in an official record book maintained by the United States Army Special Operations Command.
