Most of my blades fall-into three distinct classes: beaters, EDC's, and semi-custom show-knives. Personally, I don't give-a-hoot what people do, or don't do with their equipment. It's entirely up-to-them, regarding their usage and care. I can understand, not wanting to bust-up $300-$400 dollar blades. I have plenty of utility-knives for the gritty-tasks at-hand. Everyone has different 'comfort-levels', and the dollar-value they put on things. Most of my knives are augments to my primary-arm, a pistol of some type. Basically, a 'break-class-in-case-of-emergency' item. I've got hard-use Bucks, in my collection that are forty-years old, and still look as good as the day I bought them. A little Swiss Army jack does most of the 'pocket-chores' that present themselves. Mostly scissors, and main-blade. I just roll-with-it.
