The Difference Between a Gahagan Blade & A Darl Blade?

Here's a pic of the 2 knifves that are termed Gahagans. The yellowish one is from Bill Arnold & the other darker brown one was termed a Gahagan but said most local cllectors call them Darl Blades. I'd like to know if both of these are considered Gahagan's & how they could be confused with Darl Blades.

Re: The Difference Between a Gahagan Blade & A Darl Blade?

Well, to my knowledge it is the distinctive excurvate sides of the blade to expanded base that distinguishes gahagan from darl blade/knifes.About the only other observation I have made is that concave basal thin seems more prominent with gahagans.

Youse guys are way beyond me on the technicals of
this point type, all I can do is drift through "the
book" looking for similarities. . . .

And speaking about similarities, I just noticed the
MINERAL SPRINGS has a pinched mid section, should that
be cranked into your equasions ?

Re: The Difference Between a Gahagan Blade & A Darl Blade?

Yes, but did you also check the age, distribution (rare), and compare the flaking pattern in comparrison to gahagan/ darl?
