I recently acquired an Al Mar SERE Operator (S-30V blade) that I'd like to trade for a new Lagana V-TAC. I received this knife in "as new" condition, and it looks it. Sill has a razor sharp factory edge. There's a small problem with the factory sheath which is included, but that was incidental to me because it also comes with an On Scene Tactical kydex sheath, which is perfect. This is a pretty nice setup. I planned on keeping it, but I've become very interested in hawks of late, so it's become expendable.
