I use my blades for daily task as well as tactical purposes so I prefer smooth... unlike serrated, I can at least resharpen a smooth blade. :wink:

Disenfranchised again; you forgot a poll choice for those us us who carry a knife of each type. I prefer my conventional edges conventional, and my serrated edges serrated. My toolbox includes both standard and Phillips screwdrivers, and both pliers and wrenches. Why try to carry one knife to do everything?

That being said, sometimes I favor a knife that is not available fully serrated, and must settle for a partial/combo edge.

Carry knives:
For SD only - Smooth only,
For SD and Utility - Smooth and Serrated,
Don't have a use for Serrated only.

Kitchen knives are another story...

I checked serrated, but like both smooth and serrated...depends upon need. My Kershaws are all smooth, but my Ka Bar is half and half.:22a:

Plain is much easier to take care of. The serrated edge just seems to catch on whatever I'm trying to cut, and it makes for a jagged slice (or tear).
