What reviewers didn't like

Not full length metal tang in handle. Blade has snapped for a small percentage of users. May break when pitted against rocks.
No protection on the handle in case of any slippage
The sheath provided with the knife is made of nylon, it does protect the blade but deteriorates fast, especially when the hori hori is constantly in use. Also, the red-colored handle may look elegant but the tang may not be as secure as it should be that over time, it will make a rattle when digging.
