Finally got to mess around with the serechete yesterday. Excuse the sparse pictures. Tested it out on various thicknesses of some pine from a fallen tree. Did some 5 and 10 chop tests, and needless to say, I am very impressed. Thanks to the thin stock and convex edge, this thing can really chop. Ounce for ounce I think it is very competitive against a small hatchet or boys axe. I really dig the kydex sheath as well. I used the top rivet for an improvised belt loop and wrapped 20 feet of tarred bankline around it. Not pretty but it works pretty well. I think Im hanging onto this one for a while.
