Sheepsfoot / Cleaver Blades

Sheepsfoot Blade Style image
Sheepsfoot blades are designed to be workhorses with the shape being very utilitarian.  They possess a stubby convex tip with a straight edge and a blunt spine often with Jimping that curves down to meet the edge of the blade.  This offers enhanced maneuverability for cutting and slicing where a point is not desired which gives it a non threatening appearance. Although the blade shape appears non-threatening in shape the width and thickness of the blade often draw attention due to their sheer size.
