Thank you for the quick, varied replies. I'm sitting at work right now and our Proxy server doesnt like me looking at knives so I will check the links when I get of tonight. I just wanted to say thanks and I will hopefully be able to post a few knives I like from the above sites for your further analysis.

Spyderco yes, but no serrations. Serrations stupid.
Here's looking at you, squid.

Useful for cutting rope and seatbelts!

For utility you can't beat serrations. Spydercos have a great utility reputation.
Everything from rope, parachute chord, seatbelts, flesh, bone, etc.
I prefer combo edges simply for that, I can let the serrated part do the heavy cutting and the straight edge to the slicing.
(but spydercos don't come in combo edge)

I can't use the open hole thing on Sypdercos...probably because of that chunk of thumb I took off with a tablesaw.

A coarsely sharpened edge is arguably good on which to use fiber, but not serrations measured in full millimeters.
And sharpening [them] is a bitch. You posers actually put these knives to use, don't you?

I've always wondered how you sharpen a serrated knife. I have one, and never ever use it for anything because i don't want it to lose it's edge.

Ok, I just got back from the garage.
I put my serrated Spyderco "Police" knife against my 4 inch Wüsthof kitchen knife.
The common task: 1/2 inch braided nylon rope.
Conclusion: the Wüsthof sliced it's way through in one pass with, I'd approximate, 20% less force than the serrated thing which annoyingly snagged with the initial pull.
