A slotted back has many pluses and a minus. One plus when making a handle is the sides of the mortise for the back in the handle are parallel. This makes doing the mortise a little easier than a folded back.

The minus, if one calls it that, is how to attach the back to the blade. We use Loctite #242 Medium strength threadlocker. On might be tempted to use the stronger versions
