Am I seeing that h1 works better job with serrations than vg-10? I never thought when I bought my first knife as an adult, my spyderco ambitious, I’d fall down this rabbit hole.
H1 SE will hold an edge longer than VG10 or LC200N SE, but the latter two have very good edge retention already (SE is better in that regard than PE anyway, plus: SE will still "cut" things when dull, while dull PE is pretty useless).
I'd actually recommend to go with VG10 or LC in ffg for your first SE knife. H1 SE only comes in sabre/hollow, and ffg for me is just more versatile.
Endela, RockJumper or wharnie Delica/Endura would be a good start in VG10, in LC the Salt 2 is an amazing cutter (and the Caribbean must be too, but I never tried one).
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
