Pocket Classic Stockman Folding Knife -
This knife features high carbon stainless steel blades with razor sharp cutting edges, brass liners, polished nickel silver bolsters and pins, stainless steel springs, and special "burned amber" jig bone covers. Stockman is a three blade model that has a subtle "S" curved handle with fully rounded ends and a 2.625" (67 mm) long clip point blade, plus spey, and sheepsfoot blades.
Sheepsfoot Blade -
A sheepsfoot blade has a straight edge and a straight dull back that curves towards the edge at the end. It gives the most control, because the dull back edge is made to be held by fingers. Sheepsfoot look like a sheep's hoof.
Clip Blade -
The clip blade is a classic shape and very practical. Its name describes a shape that seems to have a portion of the spine of the blade clipped off. This brings the blade point lower for extra control and enhances the sharpness of the tip. It provides ample "belly" in the blade for slicing or skinning and a good tip for inserting in and under things that need to be cut. You will often find a false edge with the clip point.
Spey Blade -
A spey point blade (once used for speying animals) has a single, mostly straight edge that curves strongly upwards at the end to meet a short, dull, straight clip from the dull back. With the curved end of the blade being closer to perpendicular to the blade's axis than other knives and lacking a point, making penetration unlikely, spay points can be suitable for skinning.
Carbon Steel -
an alloy of iron and carbon, can be very sharp, hold its edge well, and remain easy to sharpen, but is vulnerable to rust and stains.
Stainless Steel -
An alloy steel containing 12 percent or more chromium, so as to be resistant to rust and attack from various chemicals.
