Last I heard they were fracturing at the cut in the spine when being batoned.

What is the purpose of that notch anyway?

Wire bender or cutter is what I have read.

..and to pull pots off the fire.
as for the breaking when batoning, maybe if you are trying to pound the knife thru a knot.... but any knife is capable of breaking under those circumstances.
