These knives can double as good EDC options (where they are legal to carry) and S&W knives has developed a very loyal following despite receiving a lot of criticism as being cheap Chinese knives. Indeed a majority of the knives are made in Asia and I find the blade steels and manufacturing to be of decent quality.
Also to know is, do I use coarse or fine knife sharpener?
To sharpen a very dull knife, use first the coarse and then the fine side of the whetstone; to sharpen a blade in better shape, use only the fine side. Have badly chipped or serrated knives professionally sharpened.

Smith’s 2-Step Knife Sharpener features two tungsten carbide blades and two ceramic rods with preset sharpening angles for the perfect edge every time. Three or four strokes through the carbide sharpening slots will restore the edge on a very dull knife in seconds.
Carbides provide quick edge setting, and the specially shaped ceramic stones are designed to give you a razor sharp edge on either standard or serrated edges. A fold out, tapered round, diamond coated rod is designed for sharpening serrations and small gut hooks.
The coarse stone is used to repair damage and put a rough edge on the blade (this is for really dull or damaged knives). The fine stone is used to polish the edge and get a razor sharp knife. The fine stone is good for touching up the blade.
