For a stick tang to be well made it should have a low hardness in the tang, preferably spring temper. In that state it will be amlost impossible to break.
A full tang where the metal is expossed all around. That kind of tang is very rarely spring temper because if it where it would increase the likely hood of gaps in the scales.
So i could bend the above stick tang in my vice, where the full tang would snap.
Now in use i have no vice for bending so i would be happy to use either, i may seem to have a bias towards a stick tang but my main knife i use at mo is full tang.
It is just in a theoretical debate i think stick tang's are better (the difference however is minimal as nong as they are both sharp at one end)
Here is my user that i use daily at work
