Default Baselard dagger handle construction

if anyone has handle and inspected a good quantity of these baselard daggers (the type with the pinned grip scales)
im curious on the originals whats the most common tang construction?
is there a taper in the tang thinning towards the pommel or is it generally thick as the blade and untapered?
on modern reproductions they all appear untapered.. but in my opinion this goes against the typical construction of medieval knives .. although i havent inspected originals to give this opinion- just based of other medieval knives of the period.
