I just lost about a half inch off the tip on my X-42! I was cutting apart a snowboard boot (don't ask) and had stabbed it into the base of a towel rack. The rack was only a old pice of pine, not really that difficult. When I grabbed the knife I heard a unmistakeable "Snap". I've heard some really good thing's on this forum about the BG-42 steel used in this blade. I'm at a loss. Has anyone had a similar problem? I was told by SOG that they "don't recomend stabbing one's knife into wood, as it constitutes misuse". Am I wrong in expecting my knife to be able to take a good stag every now and again?
