I got a Mora like that for $11 on amazon and I've been doing my hardest to kill it. food prep, chopping through bones, using it as a pry bar, throwing it, batoning 2x8s into firewood, you know that kind of thing. So far no luck! I had to touch up the edge on the belt sander but otherwise it's going strong.

kind of ruining me to the idea that I need a fancy knife. I could buy a dozen. and if it ever dies just grab another. should last a life time.

That said, I carry a Microtech Combat Troodon at work since I can't carry a gun. hope to not get into any combat with it, but it's about as solid and angry as a non-fixed blade can be.
