Hudson Bay trade knives

I've have a question or two about Hudson Bay trade knives. First, does anyone know any good links dealing with the historical aspects of the design. I know that they were basically big butcher knives and some had a clipped point with little belly while others had plenty of belly. Also, should the handle be made with a full or partial tang? Any help would be appreciated.
