Example text

For this job leverage is applied from beneath the handle and downward on the tip against the hide. The lever must be strong enough not to flex and the girth of the blade should not block the operator's view of any predetermined line. The amount of contact with the hide is going to be limited to a small area from the tip rear-ward. For this cut a sheepsfoot blade would be a good choice because it is very strong and the blade thins down at the tip, making it suitable for detailed work. The spine runs parallel to the edge but slopes down to the point in a lazy round curve.

The Scandinavian grind is much like the flat grind, in that the bevel describes one continuous line in a V-shape from the spine to the edge. But whereas the flat grind requires working the secondary bevel for sharpening, the Scandinavian grind is sharpened with the blade laid flat upon the stone. Not having to present an exact angle to the stone can make the Scandinavian grind easier to sharpen. In the opinion of many knife makers, what a Scandinavian grind blade may give up in strength is made up for in its sharpness.

However, it might not be the first choice for hard use or repeatedly cutting fine lines or rendering a pattern. The wharncliffe is more often called upon to cut using the length of the blade rather than its sharp point because, should it become dull, the point can become peg-like and tear the material. The drop point and the clip point are among the most commonly seen blade shapes. The drop-point blade offers a gentle downward curve along the spine, giving the blade a “humpback” appearance. The tip can be pointed or blunt.
