It has brown Micarta handles (Al Mar called this handle material Camo green Micarta) and large stainless bolsters with a shaped guard as part of the bolster. It comes with the original nylon sheath. This is the mid size SERE and we have the other two sizes also. Get it before it is gone, these are not in production!

Initiated by Colonel Nick Rowe, creator of the Special Operations Command's SERE (Survive, Escape, Resistance, Evasion) School at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the SERE became the first truly full-sized folder capable of meeting the stringent demands required in combat/survival situations.

This is the mid size SERE and we have the other two sizes also.

Al Mar was working for an industrial design firm in Los Angeles in 1967. Gerber's first designer retired about this time and Al Mar joined Gerber Legendary Blades in 1967 or 68 (American Blade magazine Dec. 1976) after Pete Gerber gave Al the task of coming up with an aluminum handle for a kitchen knife. Pete Gerber thought the project was very successful and offered Al the position of design chief. Did you know that Al is credited with designing the Gerber Mark I.

He left Gerber in 1979 to start Al Mar Knives and he died in October of 1992.†Al was 54 years old. The new owners have now discontinued most of the original models and moved to other makers on the remaining models. This leaves the knives made while Al was in control of the company very desirable and collectible! Mar is Chinese for horse.
