    I am curious regarding the apparent desire to make knives into spears or hammers, or to use them as pry bars

    It seems to me that , in a genuine survival situation, your knife is one of your most useful tools. Which means that encouraging people to put it at risk by throwing, hitting or bending it, is not particularly clever.

    I recently purchased a knife which came with a note from the manufacturer stating that the knife was a cutting tool and was warranted for that use. It was not warranted for the (ab)uses mentioned above.

    Why do we do this?

      If you’re in a survival situation and need a hammer or spear but have only a knife…

    Not a bad designed for a lower priced offerin. I’ve always liked Boker knives and I own a few of the main line and some of the”Plus” line. Both are quality products, obviously the main line is more refined.

    Oh and just wanted to touch on outdoors alternative knife use.

    Prybar- never, just a bad idea
    Hammer- sure if the handle is designed for it
    Spear- yes, but only for thrusting/poking and no throwing it
    Batoning- sure if the spine is thick enough and you need kindeling

    I wonder if you could have it all. Maybe make something like one of those folding trench tools, only smaller with a hammer/knife combo instead of spade/pick. Make the handle like a very thick-spined tang and with a crowbar end.
