My response is nuanced.

I don't use a pocket knife on a regular basis. Therefore, my preference is not based upon a concept of daily usage. This is why there are knives (tools) designed for specific purposes like cleaning horse hooves, working with electrical wire and so forth.

To me, a knife is a tool.

If I am going to be in a potentially dangerous situation, I might take a fully serrated Spyderco Endura 4.

If I want a reliable, heavy folder, it might be the old Emerson CQC6 or old CQC7.

If I want a good camp knife it would end up being the Buck 110 that is not serrated.

If I want a serviceable knife in the car that can be stolen (and I have had my car burglarized more than once), it might be an uncatalogued, partially serrated Ontario 2823 that costs about $16 with tax.

Or, I just went in the office drawer and admired my unserrated Al Mar folder.
