DO NOT USE YOUR KNIFE AS...

A screwdriver, or a chisel (despite the grind), or a pry-bar, or a bottle/can opener. Your knife also shouldn't be used to cut through metal such as soda/beer cans, food cans, wire etc. There are specific tools for these tasks that are better suited and won't be damaged in the process. It doesn't hurt to carry a multi-tool such as a small Swiss Army knife or a Leatherman to tackle tasks your knife shouldn't be doing.
