This may be a dead horse,looked back did not see a prvious thread. But I got an email from bladeforums on a survey for a special edition Spyder coming out. Asking for my preference? SO LETS HEAR YOUR CHOICE..for best all around daily carry?? Plain, partial,or fully serrated?
Give me a 50/50 edge any day of the week!

I like having the best of both worlds


" Knife Collectors Are Sharp People

Edge of choice for me is the plain edge.
The only time I would consider a combo is on a mini.
If I were to own a serrated version though, I would go with a Spyderco Mariner.

I'm sort of like Mark except I like a 60/40 edge on my blades. I want a little more straight edge than I do serrated. But, 50/50 would surely be my 2nd choice.

thankyou, ti
Don't know how the double post happended? Sorry!

thankyou, ti

Plain edge, all the way. Unless you have some kind of special job where you expect to use serrated knives a lot. So then get a fully serrated knife.

One of each!

Well, I have two fully serrated knives so I'd like a plain edge on this one.

My daily carry work knife is always plain. The others vary according to why I'm carrying them.
I think the current survey says it all..of 124 voters, something over 83% prefer plainedge.
I voted plainedge but would find a partially serrated blade acceptable. But only just.
It will probably not be used, anyway.
I missed some of the earlier discussion and am interested in knowing if serial numbers were decided upon ??
Personally, I think serial numbers would make some knives, intrinsically, more valuable to the collectors among us. This is not how I see the egalitarian nature of the forum.
Just an opinion.
Of course, if I could have # 001...........

Definitely plain edge, especially since I travel a lot. Of course, then I can use the sharpening trick of not finishing the rear 30% or so. Improves the versatility without getting confiscated.
My preference is plain. I find I can get virtually the same cutting performance from a plain edge by sharpening it at a fine angle and a course grit sharpener without any of the disadvantages of a wavy edge.

Plain edged is the blade for me! If I worked around ropes or heavy packing, mabe a 50/50 or so, but for what I do, plain is best.

Walk in the Light,
If I have only one knife, make it plian.

But, if I am carrying multiples, having one fully serrated is probably a good idea...

Put me down for plain edge, as well, for everyday. I carry two other, more specialized blades in my work vehicle, but only plain-edge on my person.
