H1 stays sharper, longer with serrations
No, I do not like serrations, so I wouldn't even begin to try to talk you into one.

If I was you I'd get the Byrd with the serrated hawksbill blade. It's super cheap on the big river and a great way to try out the spyderedge. It deff turned me into serrations.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I have been convinced to give a fully serrated model a try. 😎 I am thinking about a Salt 1 or possible a Delica. Most likely the Salt. I am gonna think it over a little more then order tonight. Thanks again.

I'm still anxious to see how LC200N and XHP both would perform like in Spyderedge. Especially LC200N being a nitrogen based steel just like H-1 is.
H1 is work hardened, no?
In that case H1 SE > VG-10 SE forever!
Yer going to love it. It might become your favorite EDC.
But your point of Hawkbills performing significantly better in SE is well taken and I doubt if anyone could argue that point at all. Even with Spyderco's patented Spyderedge serrations being the premium hard use serrated edge on the market I would still like to see them experiment with more serration patterns. I would like to see a more rounded, low profile serration like the ones that used to be on the older C-17 Catcherman model.
I also wish that Spyderco would do more of their fixed blades in Spyderedge. The JUMPMASTER is truly a premium example of a fixed blade in SE. But the older TEMPERANCE 1 model in SE is still about my all time favorite. I still say the TEMP 1 would be a premium Sprint Run in PE & SE both. I'm wondering if it couldn't be done in H-1? Because H-1 sure gave new life to the Spyderhawk model ( especially in SE).
Is the Spyderhawk (hawkbilled, serrated Endura in H1) still around? I could only find the Tasman (hawkbilled, serrated Delica)..

I love fully serrated Spydercos. They excel at cutting fibrous materials, and I appreciate the way they bite into hard plastic. When I moved last year, I used a fully serrated Spyderco to cut everything from cardboard to old garden hose to big plastic toys that wouldn't fit in the garbage bin. I was very impressed by how well the serrated edge performed and have been sold on serrations every since. I prefer plain edge overall, but I'll always have a serrated knife in my collection.
They're also much easier to sharpen than many think, especially with a Sharpmaker.

I love the traditional edge but Kels73 nailed it. Your, cut anything edge, is the serrated.
And for a general use, all around good folder you can't really go wrong with a VG-10 SE Endura. Nothing fancy but just a good all around SE folder.
And keep your fingers crossed because I believe we could see a Sprint Run of the G-10 Harpy. If that comes to fruition I'll get 3 of them this time.
And if you're lucky beyond belief and find a Spyderedged version of the original TEMPERANCE 1 model I would even go pawn something to get that. Those TEMP 1 models have been two of my all time best fixed blades since I got them back in 2004. They should be Sprint Run candidates for the H-1 Salt Series IMO.
Hell, get one and see if you like it, but generally, for EDC, I'd say why? I love serrations, but they are just a different tool than a plain edge. They cut aggressively, if you want to cut something off, like a rope, but they are not as well suited for cutting clean and straight, compared to a plain edge. They are a bit more complicated to sharpen, but IMO they also work better than a plain edge when not being so sharp, because if you use the right technique, you can tear through the material anyway and the risk of slipping with the blade is smaller, since the points dig in and fix the edge to the material. But again, ask yourself if that's what you need or if you're better off with a plain edge.
