I just wonder, how many of you have broken a knife? Doing what? I have broken the tip off several knives over the years. Maybe the last centimeter maximum. Usually by digging into wood/ making a hole. One or two trying to pry out nails, retrieving fencing wire. Never a blade though. All sorts of knifes, from EKA folders to one of the makers in Mora. One of my Fällknivar lost a tip on a rock.
