I'm really late to the serrated Pacific Salt party but now I do understand Vivi and Gringo's appreciation for this workhorse of a knife!
May I ask: How do you personally think the sabre-hollow grind of the Pac Salt SE affects its performance? Be it positive or negative (or not at all)? I´d especially be interested in experiences concerning cutting stuff as high or higher as the blade is (so not paracord, but rather cardboard, larger fruits and so on...)
Last night I cut up a Sugar Kiss melon, and a pretty big one at that. This serrated blade absolutely glided through that melon like air, and the rind had just minimal resistance, so much I made dang sure I knew exactly where my left hand was at all times! I don't cut up much cardboard but the 10 or so pieces I have cut up, especially the very first piece REALLY impressed me! Seriously, like butter!
I like this hollow grind, I can understand why so many people like FFG better, I like both! But I really like the stout tip of a hollow grind, will it pierce a hole as easily as my Yojimbo or my Urban.....no! But it will pierce a hole and I'll probably never have to worry about snapping the tip off!
I put off buying a Pacific Salt for probably 3 years, and it was on an actual "to purchase next" list I kept but some other knife always got pushed ahead of it, in the meanwhile I would read everyday just how awesome a knife it is........yeah yeah, blah blah......from some guy who lives in the tropics and fishes from a kayak everyday! Sometimes I don't like (read jealousy) that fishing guy!
Bottom line......should have bought me a SE Pacific Salt 3 years ago, turns out fishing man knew exactly what he was talking about!
