    Kinda different, because I don't cook in a restaurant, but pretty much every knife I own I "beat on". This is especially true for my Marr petty, Ivo santoku/pizza knife and Misono Swede gyuto.

    My 10inch Henckel. It pops open cans easily and I don't mind handing it off to any of the MENSA members I work with. I do want to swap it out for one of the Nogent Sabs from TBT though. I bought one for my boss that is a really good knife in carbon. It's wicked cheap too.
    To be a serious "beater" to me , it has to have the blade guard bolster thingy. The ability to pop those cans open is priceless.

    Me too. We've had it since the late '60's.

    CCK cleaver , a Suisin gyuto, a glestain gyuto, a KA Masamoto Yanagiba for my everyday.....

    And a set of unknown Wustoff looking westerns that I use for cutting frozen foods and other uses that I would never subject my other knives to!

    true abuse is opening a coconut. i use some unknown cleaver my MIL gave us. 90% sure it is from taiwan.

    living with me in the kitchen..knives get abused. i dont always think it thru, when it comes to difficult stuff like opening a butternut squash.

    if your significant other wants a coconut, "island style"..you will think long and hard about what tool to reach for. here is my beater. i do it all with this thing..flatten skirt steak, "grind" meat..decapitate chickens, etc.
