Что ж, не могу пропустить эту новость. Вначале думала написать по факту, но решила и анонс сделать.
У Al Mar почитателей много. Будем следить за тем, что же теперь будет с ними. Всё таки такие перемены впервые за сорок лет в их истории.
Gary Fadden announces "Edge Technologies Engineering LLC has acquired the Al Mar Knife Brand and will debut new Al Mar products at booth 16524 during the 2019 SHOT Show in Las Vegas Nevada, January 22-25, 2019. Rumiko and I are happy to be working with ETE through the transition. The decision was made after an extensive search for a successor who would continue the four decade tradition of Al Mar's innovation and excellence." Al Mar's reputation for innovative quality knives, hand-crafted and hand-sharpened by skilled craftsmen has established the brand as a top producer in the knife and tool industry.
John Anthon, President of ETE is delighted with the opportunity to work with this Iconic brand and Gary as they build upon the existing product line and update classics.
Gary has been elevated to Al Mar Chairman Emeritus and will attend SHOT and major industry events to help with the passing of the Al Mar "baton". Gary will continue to develop innovative new and exciting products for Al Mar and our industry.
Founded in 1979, this year we celebrate Al Mar's 40th anniversary as one of the most sought after high quality knife makers in the industry.
With over 65,000 attendees and more than 1,600 exhibitors, the Shot Show is an exceptional opportunity to share the news of transition and present Al Mar's new products to sportsman, campers, police, military, collectors, e-commerce, media and export buyers.
