With the Prepper One series, Pohl Force introduced a completely new knife concept for bushcrafters and outdoor enthusiasts in 2016: Compact in overall size, a blade length that complies with German weapons regulations (below 12 cm) and a hollow handle for storing survival utensils. After just a short time, Dietmar Pohl's design became a real classic in civilian use.

In 2023/24, the Prepper One formed the basis for the further development of a completely new generation, which now focuses on the needs of crew members of civilian and, in particular, military aircraft. The term S.E.R.E. (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) refers to the ability to survive, evade, resist and escape. The Prepper S.E.R.E. II was developed with this application profile in mind.

With an overall length of 24.5 cm and a weight of 260 g (without sheath and survival equipment in the handle), it is ideal for equipping a survival vest or a survival pack. The 6 mm thick blade made of German Niolox steel (Friedr. Lohmann GmbH, Witten) gives the Prepper S.E.R.E. II high edge retention, excellent abrasion resistance and good corrosion resistance. In short: maximum reliability in use! The entire blade has been blasted using the "double-blast" process, which is intended to prevent reflections and also make the surface more dense. One completely new feature of the Prepper S.E.R.E. II is the hand guard with screwdriver and slotted hole. The screwdriver protects the cutting edge if you need to unscrew equipment and the slotted hole can be used to attach a cord to a spear. Another new feature is the flat, roughened tang on the back, which can be used both for hammering and for rubbing a firesteel. A key attached to the tang allows access to the inside of the handle. Designer Dietmar Pohl has chosen black G-10 as the handle material, which is neutral in color and matches many areas of application.

As with the first Prepper generation, the S.E.R.E. II was manufactured exclusively for Pohl Force by our manufacturing partner Lionsteel in Maniago. The Kydex sheath was skillfully implemented by our Spanish partner according to Pohl Force specifications and received various upgrades. In addition to the 2.5 mm material used as standard at Pohl Force since 2021, the adapter is now secured to the sheath body with four screws instead of two. A handle loop also secures the knife against loss and keeps it closer to the body. Snagging of the handle on the aircraft or bushes on the ground can be virtually ruled out. A 550/type III parachute cord (1 meter long) with a breaking load of 249 kg looped through the eyelets can be used for building traps or other tasks. Blade length 11.8 cm. Collector's pouch included.

Care instructions
Niolox (1.4153.03) is a tool steel alloyed with niobium and vanadium from the German manufacturer Lohmann, which is characterized by its high corrosion resistance and excellent wear resistance (cut resistance). Knives should generally be cleaned, dried and re-oiled regularly to prevent rust and corrosion. Especially when the knife comes into contact with uncertain substances or acidic liquids or marine environment.
