What serrated knives do you own?
The ones I care about:
1. A left handed Ernest Emerson designed CQC7 in ATS34 made by Benchmade, half serrated. After Rogue Warrior came out, it just made sense to have one. I carried this for a lot of years and it's a good knife.
2. A Mike Snoddy designed auto in 154CM made by Benchmade, half serrated. Autos are cool, had to have it. This one also spent a lot of years in my pocket, as well. As you might guess, I was mostly a Benchmade fan before I jumped on the Spyder Express.
3. A 1980's vintage Henckels bread knife from Germany, unknown flavor of stainless.
These are all good knives, but the challenge has always been sharpening. It's only been in recent years that I really upped my sharpening game, and the best I could do with these is with a few cylindrically shaped diamond rods. The results are satisfactory, but not beautiful.
One thought I had was getting some of your triangular diamond Sharpmaker rods, and setting them up on my Edgepro. The benefit of acute corner of your rods is obvious for varying sized serrations. Also interesting are claims I've read of how rounded-off serrations cut better than the pointy ones that come from the factory.
