The earlier version of what they're now calling "The Rok" had safety issues and the handles were known to break. It was redesigned, but still has some issues, from what I've heard. You'd be better off with a Handpresso or similar.

Agreed.  And "The Rok" itself is just a redesign of an old Mokacrem from the 1950s (aprox.) -- see below.
