    As far as I'm concerned, serrated blades are a joke.
    I have three that are serrated, don't use any. One's
    a Kershaw, and 2 Spydercos. All 3 gifts from the
    daughter so I can't get rid of them.
    Give me a straight edge! Easier to sharpen even if all
    you have is a rock.

    non-serrated blade all the way. I have never found a real use for serrations. They just seem to get in the way for me. Keep your blade sharp and you wont miss having serrations.

    Insert tip of straight edge, apply forward pressure while gently twisting cutting edge away and up from contents of said zip tie. :wavey:

    That's a perfect way to roll or chip an edge. A better method is to use the right edge for the job.

    Side cutters.

    Barring that serrations are much more efficient.

    I agree that side cutters are the best, but I have never had an issue with a plain edge flying through a ziptie.

    Serrated due to being edc and for all types of utility uses. You never know what you might have to cut.

    Plain edge. I have several serrated and partially serrated blades, but they're just not useful to me.
