You know I've been thinking about that "Sharpening Excuse" that a lot of people use to avoid Spyderedged/serrated blades but I think that's just a "Cop-Out". With all the pertinent information on these knife forums ( Here and BF especially) I just don't believe that holds one drop of water for a valid excuse IMO.
Hey I just love that new term you just came up with and coined>> I love that term "TEETHing Because when you get your first Serrated Spyderco knife you do indeed go through a period of "TEETHing"
That's an excellent point Jim because I have had some plain edged blades that I would use on rough jobs that got so beat up and dinged up that it took far longer to get reprofiled and totally re-sharpened than most any serrated blade I ever had to re-vitalize.
Totally! I just watched an episode of True Blood where a "bad guy" whipped out what looked like a SE endura. Maybe they look more intimidating.James Y wrote: ↑Mon Nov 04, 2019 9:12 am
Oddly enough, whenever I see a Spyderco in a movie or on a TV show, old or recent, they’re usually SE or combo-edge. For example, the main character in the show ‘Chicago PD’ has pulled out his Endura 4 in several episodes (or at least the early ones), and it is the saber-ground combo-edge version.

Like I said in my opening post the biggest problem with all the misconceptions that serrated Spyderco blades are perceived to have are a result of simply just not giving them a chance>> yeah I had to go through my own TEETHing process when I got my GIN-1 full SE MARINER model. But it was a pleasant experience needless to say.
And steak. Don’t forget the
Strong point. In the decade or more that I only carried combo edge knives, I could probably count on my fingers the number of times I sharpened the serrated section, and then only with a pocket round file. That was me being lazy, but they still worked, so I felt my laziness was justified.
