Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
I'm not a tactical knife person, but I enjoy owning and carrying a dependable tool that performs its job well. The Mini SERE exceeds my every expectation in both obvious and subtle ways. The blade is the sharpest I've ever experienced - ready to shave with. The frame is incredibly solid - built like a bank vault. The heft, at about 4.5 ounces feels just right and the handle nestles in my hand like it was made just for me. At 3", the blade is serious but still legal to carry in many states. Fit and finish are absolutely flawless. And it looks like what it is, a no-gimmicks serious cutting tool for all occasions.
