    My personal solution was this. My EDC knife is not serrated, but if I need serrated, I can use the mini saw on my multi tool to do the job. It's an extra peice to carry but I cant tell you how many times my multi tool has come in handy.

    To each their own. I use my multi tool daily, and it's a life saver for me.

    i can totally see that for some, but i have an extensive expensive collection of tools gadgets and knives that itried and found arent for my lifestyle or found better alternatives for in either weight savings, comfort, or benefits terms.

    i should really give away a lot of it to people whod use it. my current edc multitool is a biner with a tiny crescent wrench, an even tinier bitdriver, a prybar, and a nail clipper. i keep bits in that pocket. combined with keys ,pen, tiny tape measure and mini box cutter it covers me daily.
    way more comfortable for me to carry and more useful than any single multitool i can find.

    I see very few people talking about how partially serrated knives are serrated in the wrong place.

    Yes it is and I can tell you that most won't agree. Maybe go start that troll thread in the MT subforum. Should work out great!

    And still no pics of that serration removal?

    Apart from SAK i think they also do some spirit x line multitools with front serrations and no tip.. some like it..
    I mean cowboy stuff aside, 90% of my actual cutting on an average day is cutting food on a plate.. Having a tool that doesnt go insta-dull doing this is probably not a bad idea..

    There are certain jobs where a properly serrated knife would work a lot better than a saw. Especially things such as cutting rope, netting, etc. Although both saws and serrated blades have teeth, their applications don’t necessarily cross over perfectly.

    For example, one of the best rope-cutting knives, IMO, is the David Boye serrated sheepsfoot boat folder. The serrations are gentle and “wavy”, so the cuts are clean, smooth and effortless, with no binding.

    Another great rope and net-cutting knife is the serrated Spyderco Tasman Salt. It also works great as a gardening knife.

    I wouldn’t try to saw branches with a serrated folder. Saws and serrated knife blades each have their best uses.

    I only have a couple serrated knives and prefer plain edges but damn does my fully serrated Spyderco Endura cut like a champ. Spyderco definitely knows how to do them right.

    I also prefer serrations on steak knives simply for the fact I don't have to sharpen them after every meal. I'm careful when using a plain edge knife on a ceramic plate but not so much for the wife and friends.

    so you cut food with a pocket knife or multitool? sounds less than sanitary

    So, you made a random unsolicited, controversial, inflammory, extranous, and/or digressive comment on an internet forum with the intent of provoking multitool fans, after doing the same to serration fans.

    There's a word for that, isn't there?

    Multitools and traditionals are two of the most useful categories of knives.

    While I do use multitools...I find your presence here to be a breath of fresh air.

    lots of firefighters and risqué personal carry serrated blades, really is the go to tool for these people who risk there lives every day, removing/cutting seatbelts clothes people in danger! also lots of fisherman use knifes that have serrations, but for knife collectors like ourselves its hit or miss I had owned some Spyderco's that had serrations and can tell you they would cut though anything!phonebook paper not so much, but cardboard never had a chance' so thease serrated blades have there place in the world.

    No, I think the answer is that you are a troll. In the least, you won't last very long on your current path.

    Explain why.

    Seems to me that if you know what you are doing with a knife and know how to clean up after yourself, using a pocket knife to prep food is more than doable and quite sanitary.
