my favorite knife (not even just spyderco) is the manix 2 lw. it’s a wonderful blade and handle. it’s practically perfect. however, if you have to wear gloves, the cbbl might be a little cumbersome. (to be fair, i haven’t tried this; i’m just imagining it would be a little bit of a pain) i can open and close the manix one-handed, but it takes a little bit of focus to pull the cbbl back to close the blade.
for simplicity of use and robustness, i would probably suggest the native 5 lw. it’s a tough knife with a stout blade and great ergonomics that lock into your hand with or without gloves. the native begs to be beat on. it’s also cheaper than the manix or para 3. i would recommend the salt version unless lc200n doesn’t hold its edge long enough for your purposes, in which case i’d go with s110v.
another good option if you’re worried about hard use on an expensive knife is just using a utility knife. just get a cheap box cutter and beat the junk out of it. then get whatever pocket knife you want for normal edc tasks and keep it from the heavy chores at work. these expensive knives can take the work, but i understand not wanting to punish them after spending so much money on them.
