Victorinox Serrated Locking Blade

A few of the large 111mm / 4 1/2" Swiss Army knives include a fully serrated blade. It has an action that is intermediate between a blade and a saw-- just perfect for cutting bread, meats, and other soft items that you'd take to a picnic. It's also better than a plain blade for cutting rope, so it's used on the two "nautical" models designed for sailors and boat owners.

Swiss Army Serrated Locking Blade
Uses: Serrated blades act more like a saw than a knife-- they don't work so well for simple slicing, but you can push them back and forth, and saw through tough materials like wood, leather or bone, that aren't easily cut with a simple blade.

WARNING: Be extra careful with serrated blades! They can cause nasty, ragged lacerations that take much longer to heal than cuts from a straight blade.
