Edge Technologies Engineering LLC has acquired the Al Mar Knife Brand.

Gary Fadden, president of Al Mar Knives, said, “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, said he is delighted with the opportunity to work with this iconic brand and Fadden as they build upon the existing product line and update classics. Fadden 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.” He will continue to develop innovative new products for Al Mar and the industry.

Founded in 1979, Al Mar is celebrating its 40th anniversary.
