mebbe you dont have the good knives....i do not own a serated knife. they are germ catchers and bacteria farms and donot cut anything nicely except fingers.
my straight knives will cut tomatoes, mangos, meats, everything with a nice, true cut, not a ragged serrated cut.

but i have had practice and training from a home economics major and 4h members in my family--all gooood cooks and farmers of apples and sailors...as well as engineers and such--lots of guidance for knife sharpening. grandpoppa used to shave dry without mirror and using a straight razor--never missed---gotta have good blades for that.

there is no reason not to have good knives, and sharp, on hand.
