The metal coil runs the entire length of the hose not just in the handle. It is going to rust and eventually particles of metal and rust will begin to fleck off and could be inhaled. You need to replace the hose (you are already doing that) and if you want to salvage the hose you need to replace everything that is not wood or acrylic.
