I think you´re touching an important point here:ladybug93 wrote: ↑Mon May 25, 2020 12:26 ami know they can, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, or the knife isn’t as sharp as it could be, you get a lot of snagging and that makes it hard to show off how sharp your knife is.Wartstein wrote: ↑Mon May 25, 2020 12:03 amBut Spydercos SE actually CAN do real "pristine cuts" (or maybe I don´t understand fully what is meant by "pristine" exactly), especially when it comes to slicing paper or cardboard (and that´s what "tabletop reviewers" do all the time, if they show knives in use at all... )
- Often times the "ignorant" (as David put it) compare DULL SE vs SHARP PE (cause they think SE would be impossible to sharpen)
- If they´d compare really sharp SE vs really sharp PE: SE would be superior in many cases imho (not only due to the serrations, but also due to the normally much more acute angle (chisel grind))
- If they´d compare really dull SE vs really dull PE: SE would win by far, cause it still can "tear apart" stuff when really dull
I think the third point is what many people have in their mind: They see DULL SE that still rips through stuff (where dull PE could not cut at all anymore) and think THAT would be what "SE cutting" generally looks like...
