The AM-4 is an AL MAR knives de­sign made by Ker­shaw. It’s sleek and nar­row, mak­ing for an ex­cel­lent EDC knife that doesn’t take up much room. Plus, it has a deep-carry pocket clip for ex­cel­lent con­ceal­a­bil­ity. The blade is a mod­i­fied drop point, is 3.5 inches long and is man­u­fac­tured of 8Cr13MoV steel with a hand­some satin fin­ish. The even-more­hand­some G-10 front scale is rounded and pol­ished for a smoothas-silk feel; it looks and feels great, but it isn’t so easy to hold onto with wet hands. The back of the han­dle is made of steel with a frame lock to keep the blade se­curely opened. It is one-handed as­sisted open­ing via the flip­per or thumb stud. We found the thumb stud to be a bit small and hard to use, but the flip­per works great. Red tube spac­ers are the fin­ish­ing touch to this vis­ual mas­ter­piece.

The AM-4 is well made and per­fect for sit­u­a­tions in which a bit of re­fine­ment and class are in or­der.
