Yeah same here, I use cheaper even homemade knives for everyday use, lose 'em break 'em no big deal.
But my homemade electrical pouch knife made from old power hacksaw blades are virtually indestructable. I used to cut big magnet cables down the mill with them. Just properly sharpen them and they'll last a loooong time.
A 12 or 14 ga. home wiring job is no match for it!
My dad made babbit handled steak knives with them when I was still a kid, they're still around.
