    if I were GOING to a knife fight!... A Scottsmans Sgian Dubh Double Edged Dagger - about 10" blade and a good Hand and a Half Claymore Sword - 45"!

    For self defense... the Spyderco SOCOM folding tactical - straight edged hard blade

    When jumping out of perfectly good airplanes with only some string and a sheet.... a kershaw para-auto - serated hard blade

    tool box... buck - straight soft edge


    Soft blades can be sharpened on a rock anywhere, but loose their edge quick. Hard blades usually require a diamond stone to put a good edge on them and stay sharp a long time.

    Does anyone have experience with the CRKT Veff edge?



    From the youtube demo from Veff himself it looks like it really works well. Im shopping for a 2nd new knife with X-mas cash (got a black leek with smooth blade today). Originally i was trying to avoid combo blades, and Initially I thought the Veff edge looked sorta gimmiky, but watching the video of use and sharpening it really changed my outlook. The other blade I was checking out was the Kershaw blur with the serrations I'd call "inverted". They are the kind where the bumps stick out unlike standard serrations where the points stick out.


    Oh, and BTW, I'm new. first post, have been lurking here for a week. Lots of great info and killer photos. Thanks for any thoughts good or bad on the Veff or Kershaw serrated edge.

    I don't know about the Veff serrations, but I have always had good experiences with the CRKT M16 series knives. In fact, for Christmas I gave my dad the one I carried in Iraq, complete with Iraqi dirt in the grip holes.

    The finger guards act as an extremely efficient flipper. I can open my CRKTs as quickly as my Gerber 06 Auto S30V (another reason laws against "switch blades" is stupidly irrelevant). The steel on most of them isn't the best (AUS4 on most), but some of the better ones have AUS8. All of them have held a sufficient edge and sharpen easily despite ridiculous abuse, the AUS8 a bit better. All of them that I've had were serrated. The serrations kept their edge. For knives in the $25-$70 range, they're hard to beat for EDC. Much better than the Gerbers in the same price bracket (low-end Gerbers use some kind of cheap nasty steel that won't sharpen well at all). The LAWKS feature on the M16s is a nice additional safety once you get used to it. My $.02

    I'm a smooth blade kinda guy. The serated/combo blade is great on a utility knife though.

    I like the 75/25 which is more accurate for my survival knives. I have a couple of smooth ones, but I perfer those all purpose ones. I love my Ka Bar.

    an EDC knife is rarely just for self defense.

    mine is a tool that i use daily, so ill take a 50/50 combo.

    i cut a lot of line, and tough things, so i need a serrated edge.

    Personally, I don't like combo blades.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, and beat you with experience.
