IMO the serrated edge is better for cutting things like Rope, and Cardboard (abrasive materials). When dull, the serrated edge still works. the smooth edge is much easier to resharpen, and therefore keep sharp. For fine work a smooth edge is preferable. I personally prefer a smooth edge, but that is just me. The Combo edge (Not available in this woot) is probably the best of both worlds. front part smooth, back part serrated. I will probably buy a couple of these, one in each flavor. the smaller one will raise less eyebrows, and is probably legal to carry in more places. YMMV
