SERRATION! What's the deal here? I see hundreds of fine knives, EDC knives, Tacticals, a favorite) or fully serrated. Ever tried to cut rope with a smooth edge blade, then a serrated one? I've cut 1/2" thick sisal rope with a new serrated Spyderco knife simply by tossing the rope in the air, and swiping at it with the knife. Do THAT with a smooth edge! I've EDC'ed a knife, since 1969. I have thousands of experiences from my Special Effects days (25 years, Oscar nominee and BAFTA winner)) and on-set supervision (19 years at the top), plus my Product Design and master craftsmanship practices. I KNOW utility and design. The half serrated Tanto blade serves me best. YMMV, naturally. Short chisel-like tip edge, longer smooth straight edge, and short serrated section for fibrous cutting tasks. The lack of any serrated options here lead me to believe that this is a group of inexperienced newbies, or fashion shipsters. Prove me wrong, I beg you!
