I've been thinking the exact same thing concerning serration patterns myself>> I've often wondered why Spyderco hasn't innovated some new patterns. Actually some of the older patterns they have already used in the past are some of their better ones used up till now. I still maintain that the low profile serration pattern on my old, full Spyderedged C-17 Catcherman model are some of the very best serrations I've used up till now>> I so much wish they would bring back the Catcherman in full SE with that particular pattern.
Everyone I've showed that knife to has loved it's performance. But why should Spyderco even stop there>> they have already taken serrated blades to another level and have already taken the knife market by storm. Who do knife afficionados think of when you mention serrated blades?? Absolutely!! Spyderco and hardly no one else>> so why don't they experiment with some other patterns.
The rounded, wavy pattern they have used in the past on kitchen knives K-04 & K-05 are superb in the kitchen. And my full Spyderedged, AUS-8 Catcherman is a food prepper's dream blade. I want another one so bad but have not been able to locate one as of yet.
Spyderco needs to do some research on more serration patterns>>> And Cliff?? if this is what it takes to get them to the research and development stage of looking into some newer and hopefully better SE patterns then I say the sooner the better. Why not take an already good thing and make it better?
