Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Gents, Title says it all. How do these patterns compare in real use and maintenance? I own several Spydercos with partial or totally serrated edges and I also own a Sharpmaker, which helps me keeping them in good shape. Currently I don't own any Cold Steel products. I used to own a Pocket Bushman that I finally sold. Great knife but it was plain edge, so I doesn't allow me to compare. I am considering buying a Recon 1 and recently saw a picture of a Recon 1, black blade and fully serrated (sans the first 3/4 near the tip). The smallish serrations have me intrigued. How do you sharpen those little serrations? Sharpmaker will not fit in there. And also, how do those serrations cut compared to Spyderco's?? Thanks in advance!
