See my knife prying here
I've have constantly used this knife for the same type of prying, digging, and other non cutting work before and after I made the video. The difference with my use is they are not abusive tests to make it fail. I didn't expect it to handle the things I put it through right away and for what it cost I definately did not want to break it. I started small then worked my way up to larger non cutting tasks as I felt more comfortable with it's ability. If it works then I stop there. I don't keep going on to harder use that'll I will never actually use it for just to make a fail video. I do this with knives and other tools all the time and it lets me find the limits without breaking something. It doesn't replace the correct tool but it's there and it works. Sorry, I'm not an EDC nerd that carries a kit for everything that could possibly arise in my urban survial world.
"...When you need a knife, you're not looking for a knife, you're looking to separate something from something else." -Sal Glesser, President of Spyderco
Weather you're cutting, sawing, slicing, scraping, lifting label, opening a paint lid, or prying a door, your're separating something from something else. Knives are universal tools.
JK, I pry with my knife because my Droid doesn't have an app for it yet
