Do it yourself serrations
by: fardarrigger

If you like a knife and wish it had serrations, do it yourself. I have had a lot of success using tools like the gerber diamond sharpener to put serrations in the back of a blade. Once to repair some electrical damage, (turned out great, looked like a shark bite) but mostly just to make a knife blade more useful for cutting line and such. I generally do one or two larger grooves, then a smaller, then repeat the pattern. It's not hard, it's fun, and it can increase the utility of a knife, while giving you as much serrations as you want, not how much the manufacturer wants. Good luck.

My favorite knife as well
by: Mike

The one knife I have used the most over the years is a Kabar fixed blade. It's marketed as a "fighting" knife, but is much more than that. It has a 5" blade with either a spear point or a tanto point.

I prefer the tanto point, but the spear point is easier to sharpen. I have used and ABUSED this knife for years, all over the US and Canada on fishing, canoe,and artifact hunting trips. It has taken everything I can do to it. The blade holds an edge very well although you do have to keep a light coat of lube on it because it is high carbon, not stainless steel.The handle material is called Kraton G. it has not dried out or cracked, and does not get slippery when wet.

After almost seventy years, this kabar design has withstood the test of time. This was the best $35.00 i have spent in the last five years!
