History of the Dadley Knife:
The best of these were distally tapered and quite heavy at the choil. Tangs were also tapered. Scales were pinned with 5 iron pins and varied as to types of material....most were wood (hickory or ebony), most were smooth, but some were checkered, and rarely, some were even stag handled. Produced from the early 1850s into the late 1870s or early '80s.
