My most hardworn knife is not a <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>(I take good care of my <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>) It is a swiss army classic. It got buried in mud for something like a year. The mud hardened and dried around the knife. Then, a year later, My brother found it. I cleaned it up, sharpened it, and oiled it. Now it works like new.
The only thing that has happened to my Rookie was my "friend" dropped it on the concrete, Stainless steel handle and all. Then my brother dropped it on our tile floor and it bounced around awhile(collecting many dents in the process).
