Why no full serrated Emersons?

    I'm fairly new to Emersons, and I find it surprising that they have no fully serrated models. I think they're serrations are great, but I HATE combo edges, I just feel like they are the worst of both worlds. Is there a reason if any? Thx!

    Last time I asked I was told to have a knifemaker do it.

    Good question.

    I don't know, I think that the blade shape of a Psark or a Commander would be perfect for a fully serrated blade. I've read that Ernie himself is a big fan of serrations, so it would make sense to have at least one serrated model right?

    A fully serrated A-100 would be the perfect tactical steak knife. :D

    I do believe the best way to get your question answered is to talk with CUSTOMER SERVICE at EKI. Can they do what you want?

    Personally, I don't think a fully dragon's teeth serrated blade would be ideal for many models. The SSRT, Commander, and maybe the CQC-9, but those are the only ones I think that would benefit.

    The Commander and the Sark models are the one I think would lend themselves to it best

    Yeah a full serrated commander would be sick, I can dig that.

    I don't think most people would find that useful.

    i prefer plain edges myself. have no use for partial serrated. full serrated, might be interesting depending on which model, but only if they would be easy to sharpen. so depends on the serration pattern, for me anyways.

    They are easy to sharpen, you just need time, the right kind of stone/abrasive, patience, and some patience.

    They did full serrated La Griffe also.

    I've asked about a fully serrated Commander before and they said no.

    I don't understand why some do not embrace the partially-serrated models.

    Best of both worlds in my book, sometimes a quick pull with the serrated portion does things the PE section takes forever to do., like trimming a branch or cutting baling twine, rope or cord. Instead of sawing away, one tug and presto.

    I cut a fellow out of a car once with my CQC8 hanging upside down by his seatbelt. I carefully inserted the knife, one quick pull far enough so it cleared his body so it would not cut him and in one second the situation was over.

    All mine are serrated for that reason. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

    the way i use knives.....it's backwards on most american market knives, for my use. i need the serrations at the end of the blade, i need to plain edge closer to the handle for tasks i use it for. that said a good serrated edge can do a lot, so if i have serrations, i'd rather have the whole blade serrated. visually i don't like the way half and half look. sharpening i find a half and half a hindrance. i have more than a few but i prefer one or the other, not both. too each their own though.

    Agreed. But I think you nailed it when you mentioned "sawing away". People see serrations and think of saw teeth and never get past that error in thinking.
