Al Mar’s popular Eagle Ultralight is a great EDC knife, but apparently some users wanted a little more heft than the 2 oz. folder could provide. Mar’s designers went back to the drawing table (for a few minutes, at least) to give them what they wanted . . .
The result is their new Eagle HD, the ‘heavy duty’ Eagle which tips the scales at a whopping 3 ounces. Still pretty light, but its black G10 grips make it a little more substantial than the Micarta-handled Ultralight. The blade specs are the same: 4 inches of AUS8, treated to a Rockwell hardness of 57-59.
Price: $210 for the new Eagle HD, $180 for the Eagle Ultralight.
