AR 3.00 - Stainless, Fine Edge

There comes a time in a guy's life when he might start thinking he has too many knives. But when you show him one of these, well, maybe he starts thinking that there's room for one more. After all, the AR 3.0 and 3.5 represent hybrid knife design at its best.


You're looking at the near-perfect combination of strength, balance, ergonomics, minimal weight, and a stylized look that can rightly be described as bad to the bone.


Sure, the AR models are easily opened with one hand. Sure, their mechanics are silky smooth. Sure, the pocketclip is the essence of convenience. And sure, they're built from a caliber of stainless steel that simply commands respect. But what you might not expect is the innovative blend of die-cast aluminum and Softgrip® inserts in the handle. To a lot of guys, this is a must-have knife.

Great knife! I carry one daily, and it's always there & always handy. Buy 2 - so you are never without!

This is the best knife I've ever had, however my clip does loosen over time

5 Your Title Travis - OCT 9, 2014

Great knife. No complaints. Wonderful quality. Definitely would buy again if I lost it.

I have had this knife in my pocket almost every day for 20 years. Use it all the time. It has a different logo. I have sharpened it many times on wet stones.

I have carried this very folder since 2006. I do not leave home without it. It's solid as it can be. I may later get the model with half serrations but this one has proven INVALUBLE hundreds of times.
