I personally prefer a straight edge on knives. Serrated edge knives are more adept for cutting breads. I have a buckmaster 184 that I always take into the field with me.

I have a Cold Steel SRK, which is straight edge that is awesome. I've used it for a little bit of everything on camping and hiking trips and it is one tough blade.

Dillinger: I agree, kukri is awesome design. Check out Cold Steels two handed model - devastating and can be thrown 30 feet w ease. Check out their video.

I purchased spyderco's sharpening system and you can sharpen anything - serrated, straight or scissors etc. YouTube has plenty of videos on it. If you sign up for Cabelas CC, they usually give you a $20 credit which offsets the cost of sharper or knife of choice.

My EDC is Spyderco's para-military - S30V - straight edge.
