Al Mar #3101 Special Warfare-1


I was fortuned to purchase this 'vintage' dagger although I did not keep this in my collection in the end. It is part of the early 90's collection and was officialy introduced in March 1992. The #3001 was available at the end of that same year.







The knife came with the original white/red box and leather sheath. Never used or sharpened, and is probably never even drawn once from the sheat since there are no marks what so ever on the blade nor inside the sheat.
