Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, None
Cons: Ease of Opening
Beautiful!
This is an excellent knife. The fit and finish is perfect in every way. This is an extremely well made knife! If you like a lighter EDC then their Eagle is great, but the SERE 2000 allows for deep pocket carry, which the Eagle does not. The handle design is study and grippy and your hands won't slip onto the blade even if your hands are wet and it's a tough "thing" you are stabbing. Maybe slightly stiff to open but not too bad. Absolutely no play in the blade. If you want an excellent knife that is cheaper consider the Cold Steel Recon, the 4" one, but if you want to step up a bit, the SERE 2000 is so great.

Pros: None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Excellent knife, poor customer service
I love this knife. Fit and finish are beyond compare, nobody else really comes close. Cons are the edge of the steel liner is sharp against your hand, I wish they could have beveled or sanded it down some. I took a file to the liner around the top of the handle, where the thumb sometimes rests. The big con (and why I have stopped recommending this knife, or any Al Mar product) is their lack of customer service. Once a year I send in all my knifes for sharpening. I send out my Benchmades, my Zero Tolerance and Kershaws, my Bucks and I take my SpyderCo's in to be sharpened since I live in Colorado. SpyderCo, Benchmade and ZT/Kershaw are all excellent. But with Al Mar, I can't even get them to return my emails, let alone sharpen my knife. I've heard they charge $15 to do it, too, unlike the other companies that do it for free and ship it back to you on their dime. Will I ever buy another Al Mar? No Way!

Pros:
Cons:
Poor customer service
The screws on the pocket clip loosened on my SERE 2000, one fell out and was lost. (there was no thread locker compound on them). I called Al Mar Knives for a replacement screw and got the run around. Maybe this was in anticipation of the company being sold, which it subsequently was, I don't know. Nice knife, crappy service.
