A hidden tang knife is a type of knife construction where the tang (the portion of the blade that extends into the handle) is concealed within the handle material. Unlike a full tang knife where the tang is visible and runs the full length of the handle, the hidden tang is embedded inside the handle and is not visible from the outside. This construction method is commonly used in knife making, particularly in decorative or custom knives, as it allows for more intricate and aesthetically pleasing handle designs. The hidden tang is securely attached to the handle material, ensuring a strong and reliable knife while maintaining a sleek and seamless appearance.
