KNIFE TANG TYPES
Tang is an important characteristic of fixed-blade knives. The Tang is the portion of the blade that extends down into the handle. There are several types of knife tangs, but they can be broken down into two main categories: Full Tang and Partial Tang.
Partial Tang refers to a knife tang that doesn’t fully extend and/or match the width of the blade and handle material. Generally considered weaker than Full Tangs, Partial Tangs have their place in the knife world and generally produce much lighter knives. Partial Tangs can be broken down further into sub categories.
