ID:	254671I prefer the looks of a knife without serrated blades. However, there are some jobs where serrations are superior. My favorite design for serrations (fixed blade) are to have them on the spine of the knife, like this Junglee Hattori. On the spine, the serrations are there when you need them and out of the way when one is slicing or whittling.

    I have been known to use my pocket knife on a steak more than once!
    This is from the A.G. Russell knife catalog, written by the late A.G. Russell, who not only sold knives, but designed knives and collaborated with some of the great knife makers:

    If you know me or follow our catalogs, you probably already know how I feel about going to a fine restaurant (or even a steak house), ordering a steak and having to cut (rather tear) it with those horrible knives the restaurant provides. I always have several folding knives on me so find myself using one of those. While I clean my knives often, they are probably not as sanitary as they need to be for this purpose. For that reason, we offer knives like these with a carrying pouch which can be carried in your pocket or in a lady's purse. Send the ugly restaurant knife back to the kitchen and use this elegant steak knife that will CUT your steak instead of tearing it. The blades can easily be dipped into your water glass and wiped clean on a napkin then washed in warm soapy water when you get home. DO NOT put them in the dishwasher.

    I use my EDC folding hunters ( uncle Henry, case) or sodbusters (case , eye brand) in public often. I think I would have left the establishment at the moment I was reprimanded by the server?? I guess I am less tolerant than most when it comes to stupid. That'd be my last visit there ......lost revenue for them.
