I don't own a Sere yet but that day is coming soon. Lately, I have been picking up a few Eagles and Falcons. Really like the designs, etc. on those knives. Lately, I have been carrying the Kershaw with the Al Mar design. Nice little knife and inexpensive so I don't worry so much about losing it.

Tune, They are exceptional folders, They made fixed blade SERE examples too. They used the Camo Sheaths on some of their Fixed Blade Special Forces Knives as well.

"The Al Mar SERE knife was the first knife accepted for use by Special Forces Colonel Nick Rowe for the SERE Instructor School at Camp McCall, North Carolina.[6] The SERE was the first factory-made production knife to sell for more than US$100 in the United States."

Here's mine.

Tune, You are right it was the SERE 3002 missing from my pic. Turns out I still had it. Here are all 3 pictured next to a Texas Knuckleduster on an M7, 6 3/4" bladed Bayo.

Although these folders sold for $155 in the 1980's...They now sell for $500+ on eBay. Not a bad return for a Factory produced folder.

I remember when these came out. I believe that Soldier of Fortune magazine had an interview with Col. Nick Rowe on the merits of this knife. Couldn't believe that somebody would spend that kind of money on a folding knife, when you could get a buck 110 for about 30 to 35 dollars. Ah, the ignorance of youth . I would like to hear some more about the Texas made Knuckleduster on the M7 bayonet. For some unexplained reason it calls to me.

Tune, Here is another SERE Folder (bottom), still a 3001 model but with a spearpoint blade rather than the Chute shape. Yellow micarta adds a lot of eye appeal to these folders.
