    The blade I use the most, essentially every day, is an old CRKT Ken Crawford "Falcon" which is really a "beater" at this point. It has a liner lock, so I really should jettison it for a higher quality blade with a better locking system. I have gotten my monies worth out of it. It should not be worth the risk of a lock failure. It is also getting looser. Hmmmmmm..........I cringe considering that. The other tool on the belt used almost as much is my Leatherman "Wave". I love it, although I rarely use the blades therein as they require more effort to deploy. I mainly use the drivers and pliers on the Wave.

    I have several nicer blades, it's just hard to consider using them. Weird, eh?

    I got a Gerber multi-tool as a gift and it lives in my fire and hazmat gear where it has served above and beyond. It has been exposed to sweat, water, smoke, and chemicals. My favorite utility/fixed blade is a Glock knife. I have severely abused it, including in several fires and the only damage was a chip in the blade when I was using it to chop out a window. I stopped carrying it on my gear when one captain thought it looked too much like a weapon, but he retired and I started again. For a utility folder I use a Spyderco with the Glock punch built in. I got it used and abused from someone who found it and thought I'd be interested. It had a broken tip when I got it, and it was full of sand, so I don't
    mind abusing it.
