You should get a cheap knife to use when you are practicing how to use the real thing as a weapon or for hunting. When you buy one that is cheap you won't care as much if it gets damaged. You may also want to practice sharpening on a cheap knife first before destroying a higher-quality, more expensive one. After you get a feel for the skill of using and sharpening a knife, then it probably won't bother you too much to throw out the cheap knife that you may have destroyed by now.
