This is probably the wrong place to pose that question. Most (all?) of us have a lot of knives and tend to rotate them a lot. You can wear a blade out, but you can’t wear a dozen blades out.
I carried one Native continuously for about 10 years. It didn’t really wear out, it just got dull. And the clip didn’t hold up well, but the Native clips back then aren’t as good as the current ones.
Agreed, most people on here,(and any other knife forum for that matter) likely has either a number of knives in rotation or a couple in supersteels that take forever to wear down. Also they probably know how to sharpen well enough as to not do what my dad used to do to his “roast beef knife” on a coarse grinding wheel every Sunday.
After his passing I couldn’t let it go in the trash so I turned it into my “apple knife”.
Before he past, and after a bit of searching and some amazing generosity of a forum member, thnx Jazz, I was able to find a Native 3 for him but I told him if it ever needed sharpening, I would do it for him!
If you're wielding the sharpest tool in the shed, who's going to say that you aren't...?
