It depends on the use. Generally, the edge types will involve a trade off between sharpness and durability.
1) Hollow Grind,
2) Flat Grind (AKA Scandi Grind)
3) Sabre Grind
4) Chisel Grind
5) Double bevel Grind
6) Convex Grind (AKA Axe Grind)
1 is the sharpest and least durable, 2 is a little less sharp, but a little more durable, and so on all the way to no. 6, which is the least sharp, but most durable.
Edges 1, 2 and 3 prioritize sharpness over durability. These kinds of edges will need to be re-sharpened often.
You’ll find these edges on blades used for self-defense, or for skinning or preparing game - where precise slicing cuts are required.
Edges 4, 5 and 6 prioritize durability over sharpness. They are not as sharp, but do not need frequent re-sharpening. You’ll find these edges on hard-use tools such as chisels, axes, and machetes, where batoning, hacking and chopping cuts are required.
If by “general use” you mean you will use your knife as a bushcraft or outdoor tool, then edges 4 to 6 will serve you well. If you mean hunting, food preparation or self-defense, then edges 1-3 will be ideal.
