The "affordable" line in 4116 have tangs that are pretty substantial, but only go through about half the handle. These would be: Roach Belly, Finn Bear, Finn Wolf, Canadian Belt knife, Western Hunter, and Long Hunter. I have no concerns about the strength of any of these knives, however, especially in the intended general utility roles for which they were designed. I don't know about the Natchez, Military Classic, Sisu, or the kitchen series, but I'm pretty sure everything else has a "full" tang (i.e., integral with the blade and extending to the end of the handle). The Recon Scout, Trailmaster, SRK, Recon Tanto, OSS, OSI, Gurkha Kukri, Safemakers, Braveheart, Counter Tacs, Pendleton Hunters, and Master Hunters (and 1 or 2 I may be forgetting) should all meet this definition of full tang. The same could be said of the now discontinued Kobun, UWK, ODA, and PeaceKeepers (should you happen upon any still for sale). The Tanto line, the Tai Pan, and the Outdoorsman should be of the same contruction, but with the addition of a small threaded bit at the very end of the tang that their pommels screw onto.
With that, my brain is officially fried and I need to get to bed.
I hope that helps you some. See you dudes tomorrow.
Pfft! I see Sarafan just beat me to the punch with a much simpler explanation. G'night!
