I build knives for use whether it's chopping wood for a shelter in the mountains or opening a package at home, I design my knives to perform a specific task. In my opinion knives are primarily made to cut and slice. They are not made to pry, scrape, or hammer. I taylor the geometry of each knife for what I believe it's primary function will be. It is up to the user to let common sense prevail in deciding what the knife should be used for.
