    When I hear "beater" i think of something to split lobsters with, or hack up duck bones. For me, that's an old Suisin 240 carbon yo-deba. It must weigh 16 pounds and has actually split a poly cutting board once in its past. If I'm lOaning a knife to someone, it's either an old henkel or mercer that I don't really mind getting broken or lost.

    A stainless Henckel or two. You can leave it wet/dirty, don't mind others using it and is still up to the task of decent cutting most of the time. I use mine every day. I'm only partial to the Henckels with the blade guard thingy 'cause you can pop open cans and metal olive oil containers with 'em.

    my globals. They for some reason take a great beating, stay sharp for a decent amount of time. I just hate sharpening them.

    DT ITK 270mm AEB-L gyuto or Gengetsu 210mm semi stainless gyuto.

    I have also been using my 180 mioroshi deba (unknown maker, eBay special) as a line knife lately. My station has to slice pork tenderloin and debone chix breast, works well for both, can take a beating and has knuckle clearance for any other odd jobs I'd needed (yeah Jon, I know it's not supposed to be used like a gyuto, but my 210mm yanagi was sustaining too much damage when used as a line knife).

    Last time I had to split lobsters was at my aunts house. At work we get 1.25# softshells, so you can just use your hands, but she had seven 3#ers. Only knives I brought were a Tsourkan gyuto and my Rader scimy, so I used the Rader to split them. Worked well and no damage to the blade.
