Badass Knife of the Week: Al Mar SERE 2000

When a knife is considered one of the strongest tactical folders ever to exist, you know it’s going to be honored as a Badass Knife of the Week eventually. For the Al Mar SERE 2000, that time has come.

The original SERE knife was designed by legendary knifemaker Al Mar and Colonel Nick Rowe in the early 1980s for the U.S. Army’s SERE school. The SERE 2000 features an updated design that’s stronger, lighter, and more precise.

With a 3.6-inch blade made of VG-10 stainless steel, the SERE 2000 is a sturdy folder optimized for intense and unpredictable circumstances.

The SERE program, which stands for Survival-Evasion-Resistance-Escape, trains military personnel to survive all types of life-threateningly situations encountered in warfare, and the SERE 2000 is the knife for the job.

This particular iteration of the tactical folder boasts a matte black finish with ceramic coating that’s corrosion and scratch resistant. It’s also available in a satin finish or a mini construction with a 3-inch blade.

Its comfortable handle is made from textured G10, which offers a secure grip in all types of weather conditions.

If you’re interested in carrying this knife discreetly, the liner-locking folder comes with a reversible deep pocket carry clip.

  1. Well this was pretty much useless. Just the basic specs? With a 3.6″ vg-10 “handle”, too. Faaaancy.
    That actually strikes me as less of a typo and more of an egregious oversight. The guy writing this probably didn’t spend more than five minutes before beginning ‘Spanish flamenco singer of the week’ and following “Badass grilling system of the week **sponsored”
