This has been my experience, but I only use a KME to touch up or shrpen them.

Always believed that a straight/sharp cut would not clot and seal like a jagged/dull cut?? Am I wrong??

Where you're wrong is where you put jagged and dull together. Serrations are not dull, I hone over the whole blade including the serrations.

Sorry but you're also wrong that a serrated edge will clot and seal.

Ron,
Do you think the buzzcut feel sharp enough right our of the pack?

I don't mind being proven wrong at all Ron. I always try to keep an open mind. Thank you for your input and I value your expertise and experience greatly!!

I just know through the years that it always seemed when I cut myself with a a very sharp edge (razor blade, X-Acto, etc.) it seemed like it would take forever to clot. I cannot say I had ever cut myself with a sharp AND serrated edge though to compare, only dull objects (rocks, cement, etc.).

You must feel there is a distinct advantage to the serrations I am assuming since you did it YEARS before it was done commercially??

Out of curiosity I just went an opened a brand new pack of Stingers, purchased last Black Friday. They're as sharp as any I've bought in years past. I'm sure a few slip through that are less sharp than we'd like.

I hear you, I use to keep a styptic pencil in my medicine cabinet when I shaved/ trimmed with a straight razor.

But like my buddy Norm Blaker told a guy once when he questioned the serrated edge of Norms broadhead, "I'm not tryin to shave em I'm tryin to kill em"
