Default Any good sites that sell knives?

I got this today but it isn't that sharp and I can return it. Im looking for something that could be self defense but mostly when I need to whip it out (lol) to cut something.

Gerber makes some excellent knives, and they keep an edge well.
But, if you want a sharp knife, you need a good knife sharpener:

I would recommend the Universal kit. It'* worth every penny.
Also, get rid of the serrated edge, they're hard to sharpen and they're not at all useful for cutting.

The serrated edges are meant for cutting rope, tendon, etc. The do have their uses...

And I was going to suggest sharpening as well. And the Lansky system is great! I use to sharpen bayonets with them to the point you could shave with them using a Lansky. I have a knock off system right now that is cheaper, but works just about as well. Can't remember the brand on it though....

X3 on the Lansky system recommendation!!

I have a number of knives, including some Gerbers - Good solid workhorse knives, and affordable.

My latest and most favorite everyday work knife is the Kershaw Leek. It is a Speed Assist knife that opens in a flash with just one hand and has very good steel that comes sharp and stays that way a long time. Not the least expensive out there, but worth every penny IMO. Here'* a decent site that offers them for much less than regular retail.

As to the serrated issue, I have a couple I use if I'm going to be outdoors and need something more rugged for things like larger branch cutting or cutting tough animal tissue. Other than that, I prefer a plain blade for everything else. And yes, the serrated portions are more of a PITA to keep sharp.
