    Question Partially serrated blade or plain edge?

    Which type of blade do you like best for an EDC folder? Partially serrated or plain edge?

    Sometimes you find a knife you like but they only offer it with serrations, or without serrations.

    Is it a deal breaker for you?


    I'm not sure which is the most popular in the industry.I've seen several knife models where the plain edge version was out of stock.

    Personally, I prefer non-serrated blades. I have a feew serrated ones but the ones I carry most are not serrated. IF you are going to cut a lot of stuff, like cordage or things like that, then get a serrated blade.
    For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:

    Not a deal-breaker but I much prefer a plain edge. I've never had much need for serrations on an EDC knife, or really anything other than a bread knife for that matter.

    Same here.

    I do see a lot of knife models offered with partially serrated blades though, so some people must like that.

    Maybe serrations are more appealing to "non-knife-guys" who don't know how to sharpen their blade, since the serrations usually stay sharp longer than the plain edge.

    Voted for both (because who doesn't need more knifes) but prefer the straight edge. I don't see that much use for serrations and it's easier to sharpen the plain blades.

    Exactly this reason for me.

    My first knife I carried had a serrated blade. I never sharpened it and the serrations stayed sharp for cutting plastic packages open and the like. So I still prefer them but it's not a deal breaker.

    my first real knife I bought (not from a flea market!) was a spyderco endura full serrations (old school, plastic clip molded in the handle) and I used it at work (cutting plastic banding off boxes), and when it got dull (and the pocket clip broke off) it got thrown into a box, and I bought something to replace it, I tried to sharpen it later in life, never could get it sharp as they did from the factory, a year or two ago, I dug it out, cut off what was left of the pocket clip, tried to grind off the serrations, got tires of fooling with it and threw it back in the box,now the only knives I own that are serrated are freebies or gifts.

    when I go to buy a knife, I pass on serrated (even partially serrated!)
