Trailing Point - Blade Geometry

Trailing Point Info


Trailing Point Blades are where the point of the blade is above the spine of the knife, usually creating an edge with a larger belly. Trailing Points are often seen on skinning and hunting knives. A fillet knife is also an example of a trailing point blade.

Trailing point knives are typically used for slashing or slicing, as opposed to peircing or stabbing.
