At sci when I was talking to the benchmade guys they mentioned that cardboard and packing tape were amoung the worst possible uses that damage a knife blade.

I really like the benchmade mini griptilian knives - Great blade for $100.

I bought a couple of Kershaw starter
For $5 at academy on clearance for cardboard boxes. The primary use for my knives.

The griptilian has held up pretty good over years of cardboard box cutting.

My trick on cardboard is to use a blade 3 times heavier than I normally use.

I have a defensive weapon knife I call it Smashit!

A professional box cutter blade might be the best choice for anyone doing real cutting.

I can made due with a heavy $5 knife.

That is what they make sharpeners for I use my knife to cut what is needed at the time.

If it needs sharpening when done so be it.

razor utility knife, I re-sharpen the razor and they seem to last longer and work better.

I hate sharpening my knives - like cleaning guns it sucks. Something one has to do not something one wants to do.

Cardboard boxes are often coated with silica powder to keep them from sliding upon one another. Death to most any blade. I too use box cutters and re-sharpen frequently on a steel or cera stix.
