No sympathy,a knife is a cutting instrument, not a crowbar. I can never see the point when some folk on here try to test knives to destruction. If you want to split a log , use a splitting axe, or mall, not a knife. Surely anyone can destroy any implement, if they use it for something it was not designed for. I can see the value of cutting wood, or rope, and using a knife to cut through material, beyond what it is designed for, to see how it will bear up, but I do not see the sense in trying to use it as a pry bar, when another tool should be used that is designed for this purpose. Rant over.
