Easy mechanism to change knives out.For use in a pottery, so too soon to say about rusting issues.Do not know about degrading of plastic issues of the barrel.There is a 8 sided nut used for tightening the blade at the butt end of the knife which stops the knife from rolling off an inclined table.

Not much to say about this knife...it's comfortable, easy to use, and the blade doesn't flip out and gouge into your eye...

This is very comfortable to hold, and is smooth cutting.
