I was hoping it would not be entertaining said:Entertaining can be Educational also!
People makes knives differently for many different reasons.
1) They were taught to do it that way.
2) scarce materials at one time in history.
3) they find it challenging.
4) They find it easier.
5) They want to preserve the handle material.
6) "Studies Show"
7) They do what the little voices tell them to do!
I am sure there are more!
Anyone care to add to the motivation list for Why so many Hidden Tang knives?
