Hmm.. I have a Manbug salt incoming just to check out those serrations you all are raving about, but ETA is more than two weeks away, so I might just take your word for it and jump with both feets into the SE hole, and pre-order a pac salt SE right away.
Not a deal breaker, but I wish they would have stayed with the yellow theme for all the salts, though..
Good idea for sure I'd say if you want to "check out THE serrations we are all raving about"
The Manbug Salt SE will certainly be a nice knife (never had one myself), but it does not offer an ffg serrated blade and just from the depictions its serrations look to be rather "aggressive".
What most seem to like for general EDC tasks are more shallow, more rounded serrations in ffg and that's what the Pac Salt ffg SE most likely will give us.
Yup, I get that. I didn’t order the Manbug primarily because it had serrations, or well, kind of, but before I read some of the positive experiences users on this forum had with spyder edged knives I didn’t even consider serrated knives. As soon as that mindset changed, many more of Spydercos knives suddenly became relavant. It was a YT review from a forum member (the name escapes me) that convinced me the Manbug could be very close to perfect for the typical cutting tasks I do at work. Besides it looks more like a toy than a knife, which isn’t a negative considering the mushy knife laws we have here in Norway.
I had the Pac Salt PE some years back, and I have no recollection of why I sold it. I think I planned to use it as an all round backpacking knife, and that’s really still what I have in mind. It would of course have been helpful to remember why I sold it in the first place, but either way, with all the changes (v.2, FFG, LC200N) and this time with serrations, it’s certainly worth another try :-)
