This is going to sound odd but my most hardworn "abused" knife would be my Ladybug.

Like most people I try to match the knife / tool to the job, but my Ladybug is always with me even when I forget (shudder) to pack a more substantial knife. Because of this my Ladybug has been used for cutting branches, poking to find buried survey stations, cutting down large double skinned cardboard boxes, surgical tool (cutting out splinters and thorns) and any thing else I do on a daily basis.

Samo, it´s a draw between my Mil and Calypso Jr ltw, depending on the occasion. In urban environement, I´d carry the Calypso. However, in the woods (read: fishing trips) the Mil really excels!
Btw, our sportsfishing season just begun. Still no luck though <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Hello All,

I have one of the half-serrated, lightweight, Enduras. I lost it over the side of my sailboat at the dock in Charleston, SC. Several months later, while in the water, under the boat (with a scuba rig) I was cleaning the hull. The tide was out and there was only about five feet of water under the keel. My bare feet were squishing around in the mud under the boat and I felt something hard with my toes...yep, it was my Endura. I cleaned it up...hardly any corrosion on the blade, and it's practically as good as new!

Thanks Sam,


Tell you what...as soon as I lost the first one, I went out and bought another. So when I found the first one again -- I gave the new one to my son! :-)

Definitely my Delica. The tip and clip have both been broken off, but it still holds an edge.
