Spey Blade Knife

For those who aren’t aware what the word spey means, here’s a little heads up: Speying means desexing or castration of an animal – whether it’s a farm animal or a normal pet. SO a spey blade knife is used precisely for what its name suggests.

A spey knife blade is an essential part of every case or ‘pocket knife.’ It leaves everyone wondering for what exactly it has been placed there – quite a lot people aren’t aware of its usage.

How exactly does a spey knife look?

A spey blade has only one sharp side. The sharp edge is straight. The other side of the blade is blunt, and the sharp edge meets the blunt tip in a curved manner, which doesn’t give this knife pointed structure. The point of this knife is blunt too.

  1. Hello, Dante: Thanks for the excellent description & 2 pix of “spey blades”. I’ve just come upon this term today.
    HOWEVER, the BLADE of the BENCHMADE folder with beige scales (photo #2) has a pretty sharp point, and DOES NOT match the profile of a “spey” blade, as shown in the other 2 photos. Worth another look from the Author?
