    ho wood doesnt split over time or when it dries out too much... however, it still can split when you put a hot tang inside of it. The horn makes installation and removal possible without breaking the handle and helps strengthen that area during use.

    Hmm. Well, I assume that if anyone knew of another reason it'd be you.

    That does seem to be a bit excessive to me. You'd think they'd just put a metal collar/jacket around the wood to support it while they are burning the tang in, and then re-use it for the rest of them.

    It is pretty though.

    no... the wood doesnt heal after blade installation.... the horn needs to stay on. Also, the wood can become loose after a while. The horn keeps the fit tight.
