I used to like serrated edge because they can cut a lot longer without being sharpened. Then I learned how to sharpen and now prefer straight edged knives. If I still have a serrated knife and I needed to sharpen it, I would simply sharpen it towards a straight edge.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
|My hypocrisy goes only so far|
I actually only bought this knife to experience the action of the switch / actuator vs a Microtech.
I didn’t want yet another black handled knife and this partial serrated blade was the only double edge blade in non-black they had in stock.
My time is not spent cutting rope, line or seatbelts so I have no practical use for this type of edge. But as it goes it’s a decent hollow ground serration.
If you’re a “right tool for the right job” type of person, serrated blades aren’t for everyone. YMMV

The serrations on a knife blade act like stressrisers, if you get the knife in a bind and put any lateral stress on the blade the fracture will start from one of the serrations. As they are usually in the back area of a blade they make the part that needs to be toughest actually the weakest.
Hey, Ed. Good to see you. Merry Christmas.
You guys should listen to Ed. He's forgotten more about knives than the rest of us will ever know.

That is an interesting tidbit I had never heard. But makes sense.

Thanks, Ed. Here's hoping things are more back to normal by then.
