Originally created for and named after the Air Force’s Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape school, Al Mar’s S.E.R.E. knives represent some of the toughest tactical folding blades ever built. And they just got even better for everyday carry thanks to a pretty major upgrade for 2020.
Called the S.E.R.E. 2020 G, these knives are available in two different blade lengths — 3″ and 3.6″ — and with either a plain edge or one that’s partially-serrated. They also still boast their signature G10 handle scales and are built with high-end D2 tool steel. The big difference, however, is that these new models are no longer manually-deployed. Rather, they’re now equipped with a flipper and a spring-loaded assisted-opening mechanism — making them quicker to deploy and more EDC-friendly all-around. Keep your eyes open for when these exceptional tactical flippers become available.
