Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and fairly new to the knife world as well, and I've got a question about the "Veff" serrations on CRKT knives. Recently, I bought an M-16 14SFG model with the Veff Serrations. All was well and good until I put it to use on a small piece of hardwood. The Serrated portion of the blade quickly failed, Chipping out in one place and rolling over in other. I want to stress that I was not chopping, hacking, performing a push cut, twisting the blade, or stressing the knife beyond it's abilities (or so I thought). With some work on the sharpening stones and rod, I was able to get the serrations serviceable again, but that does not remove any of the disappointment of the original blade failure. Has anyone else had a problem with these blades? And, if so, what would you do to avoid it happening again? Thanks very much in advance.
