My pocket knives often see abuse, since you can just resharpen them. Handy way to pass the time during a phone conference too, sharpen the pocket knife.

I bet if I were a gardener I would fall to the temptation of using my knife in the dirt too!

I keep a bailed knife on my electrical bag for stripping the outer sheathing on romex. Currently its an older TL-29, very commonly available on ebay for $10. Most electrical suppliers still offer them, but I wouldn't expect good steel from a modern offering.
