G'day from Australia, Well I was very happy with this knife until yesterday (10 November 2018). After cutting some crusty bread I then used the knife to spread some cream cheese on the bread (I know it's not designed for spreading, but it was cream cheese!). I certainly did not use any kind of "excessive" lateral force on the blade to cause this kind of "catastrophic" failure.(Almost a "catastrophe" for me as the blade section almost hit my bare foot (it's summer in Australia) and would have caused an injury if not for some quick reflexes I was pleasantly surprised to find that I still possess). Anyway, quality control/manufacturing process would seem to be an issue.
If it makes you feel better, almost a third of the reviews on this knife mention it cracking.
But honestly, Massdrop should stop trying to cut corners on knives - all the ones they've made are quite literally garbage, from HEALTH HAZARDS (the Takumi has a gap in the handle holding the blade which lets tons of gunk stay in it) to BLADES THAT CRACK ON CHEESE.
Yeah, I've read them all and I suppose dismayed that there isn't any acknowledgement from Massdrop about the issues plaguing their knives, that like you stated, are hazardous to consumers. Seems like they are unlikely to act possibly even if someone were to lose a limb. A company that cared would have been distressed by your account, immediately reached out to you and launched an investigation into the quality control measures at their factories. I'm involved in a unionizing campaign at my current workplace, and am unfortunately very familiar with the responses from management that say they care but really do not
Holy shit. I would expect nothing else from Mass Fart. Maybe the worst ‘company’ in the United States. Beat part is, they have zero scruples and are fine with shipping boxes of cat shit for inflated prices pretending they have good deals
this is just one big yikes.
