A Two Parter: TI Sab Nogent and Old Warped TI Sab.

Hi guys. I've been lurking the forums for quite a while, and have picked up an incredible amount of useful info, but I had a couple of questions, being:

1. I'm looking for a workhorse 12-incher, french profile, and have fallen in love with Nogents that Thiers Issard are finishing up. My question is regarding the structural integrity, or possible lack thereof, that goes along with not having a full tang. Does anyone happen to have any experience, negative or positive, with the structure of these knives?

2. I recently stumbled upon an old TI Sab, and picked it up for nearly nothing. Unfortunately, there is a noticeable warp when sighting the blade and I was wondering, more or less, wherher this would render it unsharpenable (unusable). I know TI warns that the nature of the manufacturing can sometimes cause defects, so at what point do these defects cause usability problems? Also, TI apparently has a lifetime warranty. Does anyone know anything about this?

Thanks for the replIes. I was mostly concerned that the length of the knife would cause added stress on the handle depending on what's being cut, but that probably isn't too rational, and a pinch grip would certainly solve that.

I appreciate the info about the NOS handles. I hadn't realized that was the case.
