When choosing the best pocket knife for your everyday carry, one of the decisions you'll need to make is what type of blade edge you should choose.
The common recommendation is to go with a plain edge (for reasons we'll get into later), but you might notice two other types of edges: serrated and combo edges. Instead of an unbroken edge on the blade, these two alternatives add some “teeth” to the knife.
You may not have needed serrations on your knife before, or don't know enough about them to add them to your kit. In our last guide for custom-designed knives for everyday carry, one reader asked: “Why don't you guys ever feature serrated knives?”
Well today we will, and our goal is to compare each type of edge in the context of EDC tasks so you can make the right choice when picking one.
