I've had a Spyderco (enduro?? Law Enforcement model )half serrated about a 4" blade. Been a great knife & I've put it through hell. Don't know about dressing a deer or an elk but I don't see it being a problem.
Charles, an interesting knife, but it appears that the blade is not the type that would be too useful for cleaning a fish (or an Elk) maybe a good knife for cutting boxes open, or through rope etc. Certainly not a skinner......
Can anyone advise what style blade it is and what it is designed for?
Take a look at the SOG knifes. Their assisted opening is fantastic. Great value too. I have bought for myself and gifts from Island Tactical. I have Kershaws and Bucks that I don't like near as well. Would like to carry an Emerson to see how I would like it, but pricy and I think their quick opener is more limited. Mike
They make sharpeners for serrated blades. But that being said I've cut tires, rope, hose and a bunch of other stuff with my serrated blade and have never sharpened the "serrated" portion of the blade. Maybe not as sharp as when I got it but it still cuts everything I put in front of it.
Look up Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT) online.....I have several of these knives and the quality and price are exceptional. I also own Buck, Spyderco and Kershaw knives, but I really like the features of the CRKT line.
I have a couple older Benchmades and an Emerson or two that I would consider parting with if anyone is interested. All are unused, new in the box. If interested email me after fixing the @ in email address. -Dan
I have Gerber & Kershaw, Both been very good for the price of a every day knife. The partial serated a plus in its great to cut a seat belt, incase you nned to cut someone out of a wreck or items that a normal blade wouldn't cut.
