This is my second Al Mar. The Nomad has a beautiful design and the looks is what sold it to me. The blade design is great; thin yet strong with decent belly. I love the VG-10. The handle scales are G10 and have a fine grip. Lockup is solid and operation is smooth. Fit is disappointing as the liners have sharp inner edges and catch the fingers. Liners stick up a fraction above the grip scales. Opening with the thumb fast can result in a nice cut on your thumb as the ergonomics are just not designed well for opening. You cannot let your thumb ride in as it wants to when opening.
All that said though, it is a great looking knife, solidly made and the looks make you forgive alot.
A bit pricey considering the fit and finish of the liner. Still love it though!
