    Dang. I've wanted one of these since I first saw them. Haven't been able to get any OT lately though. This would great for clearing FL brush and maintaining my property though.

    So I have good news and bad news. Two people put their info in at the exact same moment. This means that instead of four being sold, two people bought the same one and five were sold. I am not going to hose over one of these folks, so since I only have 5 there will be no auction. These sold out in less than 10 seconds.

    I hit the link at exactly 1900. It switched to available and I hit the add to cart and it said quantity. I found the box and entered 1, and it said sold out! Wow! so close but no luck. I guess you need to hit quantity first.

    A Serechete with a serrated spine, Micarta scales and a lanyard hole would be awesome! Make about 50 of them and drop the price point to make them more available/affordable to members, and IMO would also sell out and would be a tremendous hit. hint, hint! lol

    I was fortunate enough to get one of these, pretty sure I was one of the first. I was in the process of selling a car! :18:
    got the reminder on my phone, logged into PayPal and started hiring refresh lol.

    Don't worry guys, there will be more!

    These sold out in something like 12 seconds. What about that does NOT seem like they already ARE a hit?

    They were a hit! I never said otherwise. I just want one with a serated spine so I threw the idea out there! Making more quantity would drive the cost down and would make it available to more members on the forum. Big hit for seller and buyer.

    Plus the serrations on the back will really tear up your baton, so best to not have it....
