Please note: many of the Miki Hocho / Japanese kitchen knives that are for sale here have either full tang or partial tang handles. A partial tang handle does not equate to a decrease in quality. Partial tang knives are less expensive because they require less labor for the toolmaker. If you have any questions about a product please do not hesitate to contact us.
