One thing that I see coming up over and over in knife forums is cardboard cutting. I really don't understand why people talk about it as a significant EDC task. I once had a job where I would break down 50-100 boxes every day. I don't work with cardboard much these days but we get a couple of packages every day. It is almost always easier to cut the tape and fold the box instead of cutting them up. So every time I see a discussion about blade steel and someone starts talking about how much cardboard they cut every day, I just have to wonder why they are making extra work for themselves (cutting and sharpening). It doesn't bother me if people do it for fun. It's just that some people act like cutting is the most efficient way to deal with cardboard and that hasn't been my experience. Also, I know that many people use cardboard as a medium for edge retention tests, but that isn't EDC use.
