I got an email from Drop asking me to write a review, but the knife has not arrived yet. Should I be worried?

I really can't speak for the apparently China-made SERE 2020 with D2, but I've had a SERE 2000 in VG10 for years and it is the best pocket knife I've ever owned.

Why is there a notch for a non-existent thumb stud?

Seriously, I believe that is intended to facilitate access to the liner lock.

huh.... interesting.... so a quick background on al mar knives. (please note, i dont own any and this is why) until recently, i think 2019, all al mar knives were made in japan, and cost quite a bit. if memory serves the original sere was around $200 in VG-10. it looks like 2019 the company started doing collabs, shifted manufcturing over to china, started using framelocks, and apparently uses D2 now. they also shrunk their catalog down quite a bit. not sure if this was a good thing, but lowering the price definitely opens them to a new market. they did have a reputation of very high level of fit an finish, let's hope that still remains now that they are manufactured in china

I can tell after buying this that the Japanese steel and technique that was on my old SERE is nowhere on the new one. This looks and feels like a knife you pick up at a gas station.

A lot of Al Mar’s product line were made in Seki, Japan. They were however, very pricy compared to this latest offer. Manufacturer in China often results in lower pricing. As to the comparison of quality, there may be other reviews out there on the web.

I don't think I'd refer to G10 & D2 as "updated materials." Compared to the original, this is a disappointment.

I sometimes start a comment with "I could be wrong..." when I'm too lazy to look things up. 😁

Hahaha. Yeah that's probably what happened here. I was right in some respects in thinking these knives had always been made in Seki City, but it wasnt til after the conversation and pointless fight that I actually invested the time to look up info on the brand itself. I do know that 20 years ago (when he purchased this knife) you could build 90 percent of the knife in another country, assemble it here, and claim it was "made in the usa". That's not as easy to do today. There is a reason why microtech and ZT have strayed from m390 and elmax to usa produced crucible and carpenter steels (20cv and 204p). Nowadays it has to be assembled here with materials from here to claim its "USA Made" But in all honesty I'm still not sure what point he was trying to make. Maybe he does have the only one ever made here. I guess he won by being so mature and leaving the conversation entirely showing he no longer cares. Pretty stupid though. When I say I could be wrong I mean just that.
