    I received this Cold Steel Recon 1 in a trade with another BCUSA member.
    The knife needed a little TLC...

    Yeah, not a big fan of serrated edges... luckily not much material is lost in removing them.

    +1 on removing that serrated edge. I had to scroll back up and look again after seeing the post from @Ptpalpha
