PE. Works better. Most outdoors cutting tasks aren't that abrasive unless you're using it to process game. PE with the angle taken down so its more comparable to the SE angle, it'll cut like a champ. Much easier to sharpen in the field, works better for carving traps, works better for field dressing etc. PE all the way. Carry a sheet of sandpaper or a Spyderco pocket stone and edge holding stops being a concern. My reprofiled H1 knives take an incredibly mean, hair whittling sharp edge.
