I'm not planning on doing it any time soon but I was using a serrated knife in the kitchen earlier and was wondering if anyone here had made a serrated knife.

If yes, what advice would you give?

I was involved in the process as an apprentice at J A Hellbergs
made some industrial bread slicing blades, although a wavy serration.

One "easy" way of doing the teeth is to shape a broad grinding wheel with a diamond tipped dresser, create the desired serration, then maintain it as you go along grinding the blade,
another, although alot more complicated, is to use a thin wheel,(1/4 inch)
and shape the profile to a "V" and grind each serration tooth at a time.
