    Two comments come to mind.
    I have, and like serrated blades, but they are b1tch to sharpen.
    Also, if the purpose was to be a multi-tool, more of the handle and blade section could have been used for hex drivers. This would also make it even lighter.

    Sharpening them is a task! That's why a steel w/ good edge retention is important. As to it being a multi-tool, its intended use is as a dive/offshore knife; cutting net, line, etc. My question is, do most boats use metric bolts? That would explain the metric hex heads.

    from what i have found the USA is about the only place that doesnt use metric bolts ...
    As for the rest of the knife I go with serated at work because if you dont have a sharp kife u will always be able the "chew your way threw whatever your cutting...{mainly rope}
    Reasons for not haveing a sharp knife...
    No time to sharpen it ...shift is to long ...
