I would recommend taking a look at the Manix 2. They are out there in lots of different steels. Som are hard to find. S90v and M4 are a couple. But, even if you forgot about the exotic steel requirment and went with the ones that are available in CTS BD1 full flat grind, I am sure the knife would do what you need it to do.

This is the one I own and am basing the recommendation on:
thrumylens.org/featured/review-of-the-sp...d30p-edc-perfection/

There is another, the Kershaw Rake, that looks like it may be a reasonable choice. The composite blade is FFG with a D2 edge. I really like the way the D2 takes an edge. I haven't beat this knife up much, but for light duty the D2 seems to hold an edge well. While you wouldn't want to twist or pry with the knife the D2 has excellent wear resistence and toughness. So, it holds an edge well. I think the shape of this blade might make it usefull for the tasks that you metnioned. I like the assisted opening feature as well.

A bit of shopping will find better pricing.

You're ZDP Stretch is a great knife as a slicer. I have one in FRN and one in carbon fiber. That hard steel can be a little fragile in hard use. Just a heads up.

For a small fixed blade, a Bark River Ultimate EDC in CPM-M4.

You have great taste in kitchen knives, I enjoyed the diversion.
I really appreciate all of the suggestions from everyone and will investigate each one.
