    I got one in the last batch I am not sure it is going to be a good fit(for me) if not I will list it at my cost. Will PM you if that's the case.

    Don’t give up Brother, the quest is definitely worth the journey no matter how long it takes. I too was lacking in expeditious manual dexterity ( I type way too slow... ) but I kept looking, asking, but I it seemed I was always just a few minutes too late. I had about decided I had somehow angered the steel gods and fell into disfavor.

    ...and then one day, the rain stopped, the stars aligned, and a rainbow and an email appeared and just like that the Serechete was mine! And unlike so many things that I have wanted badly and finally gotten in life, my Serechete did not disappoint, in fact it exceeded expectations.

    Stay true to your quest, I had lots of help from the guys on this site, and I am certain you will be rewarded. We will all be watching for you. Good luck!

    @Medic17 Terry is taking care of you guys and asked for the dark handles back. Everything is prepped waiting for them to get back from heat treat. I sent three packages out to Peters' in Dec. Think they married up during the Holidays. The guy drawing out and straightening the stick tangs probably hates me. I'll be on them as soon as they show up.

    B.....you bring so much happiness to the world! I’m thinking it’s been way to long since I’ve seen a SET pkg in my mailbox! Happy New Year’s @Sargent looking forward to seeing the next batch of Serechete’s!

    @oathkeeper762 You too my man, gonna be a good year!

    I love old military tools. Secretly that's how I've always looked at this thing. If you've ever bought an old rifle from a group buy and it's smeared with cosmoline or find something still wrapped in wax paper. Coating the scales in epoxy protects but also gives it that feel of coming out of a crate. I lost my Dad's OD painted surplus hatchet years ago. Always loved the way the paint looked on the wood.

    Well that was interesting.
    One second after hitting the refresh button every time the page reloaded I added it to my cart and was working my way through the Checkout when it said there weren't enough left to continue... and I had been logged in.
    And all were ten available?

    Well under a minute. Like ten seconds. And I had one in my cart.
    How could it be in my cart, I'm going through Checkout, and suddenly be gone?
    This isn't the farmers market in the city, lol.

    Getting close, not too many replies. Everyone must be tuning their mouses, keyboards and reflexes. I’d love to give one of these a try someday.

    I bought one from the last batch and have one I bought used a while back. Little thicker than my 12" machete. My machete flexes a little too much for my liking. If I'm chopping up some wood that's on the thick side for the machete, it flexes and sometimes deflects off. The Serechete's slightly thicker blade seems to bite hard without any noticeable flex.
    I'm digging the rounded tip. Did a little digging with it today. Nice feature!
    Handle feels good. I wear an XL glove and usually feel cramped holding knives. The Serechete handle feels good. Bonus that the whole package fits in my Kifaru E&E!
    Like the edge transition from flat to well executed convex.

    Great piece of gear!

    Hey @IA Woodsman,

    Any idea if these are gonna be back in the store any time soon? I know everyone else is excited about the PT knife, but I'm mad I missed out on the last bunch of these to come through!

    These should be in the store late next week. I will give folks a heads up a couple of days before they are in the store. Sorry for the wait.

    Just so folks are aware, this is the last batch of Serechetes that Sargent will be making. He told us he was not able to keep up with our demand plain and simple. There it is, no internet drama just the facts. We would like to thank @Sargent for all of the hard work over the years and wish him the best of luck.

    This does not mean that it is the last batch ever being made though. We are talking to another maker about this and other projects FYI.



    These will be in the store at 1900 Central time zone.
