    All,

    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.

    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.
