    ?? Seen the blade on it?? Had a look at it but I have no use for something that over-serrated myself, obviously not made for someone like me.

    Like the orange. Don't like the serrations. It would be a good candidate for a damascus blade from txtoolcrafters if one wanted to spend the money...

    kwispelhond MTFatboy I actually really like the serrated. I'll explain why. I have straight blades. On my EDC traditional and backup on my Style CS. The Skeletool is my 'work tool' blade, hard use and abuse. For that a serrated blade, in 154cm no less, is a very good idea. It's not going to blunt out from hard use, will not need to be kept honed, will slice through anything and especially the harder use stuff it will be designated for, material, rope, cartons, wires even, etc. My current Skeletool blade, in 420HC, just doesn't stay sharp. Period. Cut once sharpen once. I need better than that in a hard use LM that does tool like stuff. I've got my EDC traditional for food and slicing. Horses for courses.

    Nurse didn't seem to want to use my Queen Copperhead to cut the umbilical cord. Weird.​

    Thanks to all! By the way, the bit about using my knife to cut the umblical cord was a joke. Even I'm not that stupid (most of the time).
