    I try to pry out the stuck thermostat with the screw driver and did not work. So, i tried to but the rubber gasket part of the stuck thermostat with the knife. The result was tip of Boker Kashinikov knife broken off. Time to shop cheap carry auto.

    Or spend a little more for a not-cheap auto and not have to replace them every time they break. Not saying a knife made out of better steal would have survived but it would have. ;-)

    I have a pretty nice knife and the warrantee is void if I try to pry or screw anything with it.

    How about an bali-song auto multi-tool knife?

    Thanks for recommendation. Didn't even knew some of those existed.

    One of the guy I know who is into spyderco gave me the same advice.



    Conclusion: decide to go cheap again and went with ravencrest for otf and start using my kershaw launch 5.

    On my desk, I also have a cheap $13-14 kershaw zing (blackfriday+10 coupon for 2) as a box cutting backup.

    I got one of those BeastBlade cheapies from the gunshow. Seems like an ok knife, nothing special, but better than I expected for 60 bucks...

    You certainly can replace a cheap knife many times for the cost of a good knife so I can't fault you for that. Some of it is prestige too if I'm being honest. Used to be I'd invest in a nice Tag to wear but now that Smartwatches are much more functional I have a hard time spending that kind of money on something that "feels" nice, ya know? That role has kind of been taken over by knives for me. I justify it by how well they work, how long they last and the warranty associated with them but you can buy and throw away a lot of crappy knives so it's not all about quality differences.

    After seeing the BladeHQ video on Boker AK auto knife, I thought my tippless knife can be salvageable. So, I did some grinding and sharpening to reshape the tip (with the simple stone). It came out okay. It still needs more work done to be on a level to cut the boxes smoothly, but it does open box very easily. I will post where it is at now, and final sharping.
