I got myself an old Al Mar A-F, and with it a new project : rebuilding handle scales !

I did not find any 3D model of them, only this forum thread with some sketches of the Boker Combat II

1st step (done) : some photogrammetry  with the PolyCam app to get the rough shape of the "less broken" handle scale (the result is quite stunning visually -but will need a lot of clean up work-)

next steps planned already :
2d step : find help to make a 3D model of it (which gonna be available to anyone that would need it : nearly every single A-F of that era has broken handles)
3rd step : get a print prototype in PLA
4th step : get a print made in fiber reinforced filament to have perfectly usable scales

The project did not progress at all, but I got another A-F ... the grey one with serrations. It is called "Böker A-F Vintage 123543"

Just came here to look at what I feel to be an excellent blade design.

Looking at the first post reminded me I do own one.

Many years ago I picked up a Gerber folding version that my wife promptly adopted as her sit in the drivers door pocket and be ready if needed blade. 

It hasn’t seen the light of day since thankfully.

Will dig it out and snap a picture after work.
