Knife blades

A blade is the flat part of a tool, weapon, or machine (such as a fan) that normally has a cutting edge and/or pointed end typically made of a flaking stone, such as flint, or metal, most recently steel. A blade is used to cut, stab, slice, throw, thrust, position and/or place (an example of this is razor wire), shoot (an example of this is the ballistic knife) or scrape (an example of this is an ink eraser).

Physics

The ability of a blade to cut arises from the concentration of the force applied to the blade onto a very small area, resulting in a high pressure on the matter to be penetrated.

A serrated blade (a blade which has many small "teeth") takes this further as each individual tooth concentrates the force on a smaller area which helps cut through denser materials. A jagged knife can cut through objects solely with a sliding motion with little pushing force, this is useful, for example, in bread knives. Some bladed weapons (and tools) have curved blades.

As a rule the blade must be made of a substance which is harder than (or as hard as) the material it is intended to cut. If this is not the case the blade will either be unable to cut (as it absorbs all the energy as it is damaged) or will wear away very quickly (if it is hard enough to transfer enough of the energy to damage the material). The material must also be tough enough to last (e.g. glass is very hard but it shatters easily and thus is not very effective as a material for a blade).

Heat treatments, which increase hardness for better edge-holding, reduce the material's toughness. A balance must be found between the sharpness and how well it can last. Methods that can circumvent this include differential hardening. This gives an edge that can hold its sharpness and a body that is tough.

Geometry

Blade of a whale knife

An ideal blade would come to a perfect edge —not at all rounded— but that says nothing of the angle of that edge. The ideal angle is a function of the material being cut. For example, a tool bit for cutting metal may have nearly a 90° edge; it would probably not even be considered a blade. With very rigid materials such as metal, cutting deep into a piece with a blade would be impossible so deep cutting is done with a saw or grinder which provides kerf through which the cutting device can pass. With less-rigid materials such as a butternut squash, an acute blade prevents the blade from being pinched by the material. When cutting biomaterials such as tomatoes (which tend to have a low elastic modulus but high yield strain), the angle of the blade is less important since the material will bend, but the sharpness of the edge is important because if too much force is required, the material will be squashed rather than cut (or alternatively a serrated blade could be used).

Material

Material for weapon blades has to be selected to achieve a balance between hardness and toughness and the balance is dependent upon the intended use of a blade. In antiquity, the main metal used was copper, then of bronze and later iron. Perhaps the most well known is pattern welding, a technique used for katanas (samurai swords) and blades made to resemble damascus steel blades. This was a very labor-intensive technique - and thus such swords were very expensive.

Techniques may also be employed to make the blade stronger or harder. Copper and bronze can be "work-hardened" by simply hitting the blade with a hammer while it is cold. Blades made of steel with a high enough carbon content (greater than 0.2%) can be heat-treated by heating the steel up to a critical point (most simple carbon alloys become non-magnetic slightly below that point), then quenching it with forced air, oil, or water depending on the steel. Quenching puts an enormous amount of stress on the metal, and often a sword would break into pieces during that step. If the sword survived heat-treating, it would be tempered by heating it to a relatively low temperature for an extended period of time. The tempering process would make it slightly softer, but also tougher and "springier", and thus less likely to break or chip during everyday usage.

Case hardening is a process of increasing the carbon content at the surface of very low carbon steel. It is done by placing the object to be hardened in a sealed container along with carbon-containing material; in antiquity, this material was usually horn or hide. The container would then be heated until it was glowing red, and held at that temperature for a while, based on the size of the part being hardened, allowing carbon to penetrate the steel by a few thousandths of a centimeter. At that point, the object would be dumped out of the container into a water bath to quench it, resulting in a very hard surface, but completely unhardened core. There is very little evidence of this having ever been done to swords except, perhaps, the very earliest of iron blades. Due to the inherent weakness of a sword's cutting edge, coupled with the high-impact stresses of combat, such a thin hardened surface over a soft core would provide very little advantage in terms of edge-holding, other than mild wear resistance.

Another important aspect of many blades are so-called "fullers". Despite popular belief, fullers were not "blood grooves" that facilitated quicker bleeding of the victim and easier removal after insertion. Rather fullers helped to make a blade stronger and more durable at the core by giving it an I beam cross section, thus reducing the amount of steel needed to keep the spine stiff. This was very important in ancient times when high quality steel was more labor intensive to make, smiths would scrape the fuller with a U shaped tool before hardening and reuse the scraps. Modern day fullers are made by positioning a heated blade over a bottom fuller, setting a like sized top fuller on the top side of the sword, and hitting the top fuller with a hammer.

The most common materials used nowadays are carbon and stainless steels, though anything that is fairly hard can be used. This has led to exotic blade materials being used in the past, such as obsidian, flint and bone. Joining them now are types such as synthetic sapphire,[1] zirconium dioxide and even very hard plastics.

Dulling

Blades dull with use and abuse. This is particularly true of acute blades and those made of soft materials. Dulling usually occurs due to contact between the blade and a harder substance such as a ceramic, stone or a tougher metal. To a first approximation, a harder material cannot be deformed by a softer material at their interface because the stress on both materials is the same at the interface and so the softer material will yield first. One exception to this is when the highest stress is not at the contact point; this is why a steel paper clip can easily be bent even though the end of the same paper clip could scratch the skin.

Patterns of knife blades

Blade styles with typical edges highlighted

Some of the most common shapes are listed below.

(1) A normal blade has a curving edge, and flat back. A dull back lets the wielder use fingers to concentrate force; it also makes the knife heavy and strong for its size. The curve concentrates force on a small point, making cutting easier. This knife can chop as well as pick and slice. This is also the best single-edged blade shape for thrusting, as the edge cuts a swath that the entire width of the knife can pass through without the spine having to push aside any material on its path, as a sheepsfoot or drop-point knife would.

(2) A curved, trailing-point knife has a back edge that curves upward. This lets a lightweight knife have a larger curve on its edge. Such a knife is optimized for slicing or slashing. Trailing point blades provide a larger cutting area, or belly, and are common on skinning knives.

Clip-point blade

(3) A clip-point blade is like a normal blade with the back "clipped" or concavely formed to make the tip thinner and sharper. The back edge of the clip may have a false edge that could be sharpened to make a second edge. The sharp tip is useful as a pick, or for cutting in tight places. If the false edge is sharpened it increases the knife's effectiveness in piercing. The Bowie knife has a clipped blade and clip-points are quite common on pocket knives and other folding knives. It should be noted the clip illustrated is very pronounced, even exaggerated. Clip point knives only need look as if a part of the knife from the spine to the point has literally been clipped off and this could be straight or curved.

Drop-point blade

(4) A drop point blade has a convex curve of the back towards the point. It handles much like the clip-point, though with a stronger point less suitable for piercing. Swiss army pocket knives often have drop-points on their larger blades.

Spear-point blade

(5) A spear-point blade is a symmetrically pointed blade with a point that is in line with the center line of the blade's long axis. Spear-points may be single-edged (without or with a false edge), may have only a portion of the second edge sharpened, or double-edged. Pen-knives are often single-edged, non-spined spear-points, usually quite small, named for their past use in sharpening quills for writing. Pen-knife may also nowadays refer to somewhat larger pocket knives which are often drop-points. Some throwing knives may have spear-points but without the spine, being only flat pieces of metal.

(6) A needle-point blade is a symmetrical, highly tapered, twin-edged blade often seen in fighting blades, such as the Fairbairn-Sykes commando knife. Its long, narrow point offers good penetration but is liable to breakage if abused. Although often referred to as a knife, this design may also be referred to as a stiletto or (slender variety of) dagger due to its use as a stabbing weapon albeit one very capable of slashing as well.

(7) A spay point blade (once used for spaying 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.

(8) A Kamasu Kissaki, often referred to as a "Americanized tanto" but actually a Japanese design tip which went out of use in the 15th century, has a somewhat chisel-like point that is thick towards the point (being close to the spine) and is thus quite strong. It is superficially similar to the points on most Japanese long and short swords (katana and wakizashi). The traditional Japanese tantō knife uses the blade geometry of (1). The Kamasu Kissaki is often straight but may also be gently curved. The point is actually a second edge on the end of the blade, with a total edge angle of 60 – 80 degrees. Some varieties may have the back edge angled to the point slightly and sharpened for a short distance from the point.

(9) A sheepsfoot knife 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. They were used mostly by sailors in old times, as the shape of the tip prevented accidental penetration of the work or a person when the ship rolled suddenly.

(10) A Wharncliffe blade is similar in profile to a sheep's foot but the curve of the back edge starts closer to the handle and is more gradual. Its blade is much thicker than a knife of comparable size.[2]

(11 and 12) An ulu (Inuit woman's knife) knife is a sharpened segment of a circle. This blade type has no point, and has a handle in the middle. It is good for scraping, and sometimes chopping. It is the strongest knife shape. The semi-circular version appears elsewhere in the world and is called a head knife. It is used in leatherworking both to scrape down leather (reducing thickness), and to make precise, rolling cuts for shapes other than straight lines.

Not pictured is the undulating style found on items like the kris or flame-bladed sword. These blades have a distinct wavy design and are sharpened on both sides, typically tapering to (or close to) a symmetrical point.

Patterns of sword blades

Swords may have either a straight blade or a curved one. A straight sword was thought to be primarily intended for hacking and stabbing, yet recent studies have shown this to be untrue, as many slicing techniques were used. The difference between a hacking cut and a slashing one is essentially the same as the difference between using a butcher's knife and a chef's knife; one forces an edge straight into a material while the other is pulled along the material to get more of a slicing action. Hacking cuts were usually followed by a slicing action, where the sword is drawn backwards to maximize the cut. For more information see Western Martial Arts or kenjutsu.

Some variations included

  • the flame blade (undulated blade, for both psychological effect and some tactical advantage of using a non-standard blade: vibrations and easier parry)
  • the colichemarde, essentially found in smallsword

[Frost enters]
Quinn: Deac, let me take this guy out, man. Look. Look what he fucking did! He took my hand again!
Frost: Listen to me. I want him alive.
Quinn: What the fuck you talk--- "Want him alive?" We've been trying to kill this motherfucker for years. Are you out of your fucking mind?!
Frost: Big guy, relax. Be patient. Now we got a lot to do, here. I need you, man. I need you.

Dr. Karen Jenson: You have a lot of love for him, don't you?
Blade: We have a good arrangement. He makes the weapons. I use them.

Frost: How you doin' chief? [Blade reaches for his gun] Easy. Wouldn't want our little friend here to wind up on the back of a milk carton now, would we? It's nice to finally meet you, man. Had my eye on you for years. I know all about you: your serum, Whistler, everything.
Blade: Sunblock.
Frost: Hey, it's a start, right? The goal, of course to be like you: [With mock amazement] the Daywalker! You've got the best of both worlds, don't you? All our strengths, none of our weaknesses.
Blade: Maybe I don't see it that way.
Frost: Oh, so it's back to pretending we're human again? Come on. Spare me the Uncle Tom routine, okay? You can't keep denying what you are, man. You think the humans will ever accept a half-breed like you? They can't. They're afraid of you. And they should be. You're an animal. You're a fuckin' maniac. Look at 'em. They're cattle. Pieces of meat. What difference does it make how their world ends? Plague. War. Famine. Morality doesn't even enter into it. We're just a function of natural selection, man. The new race.
Blade: Looks like your mascara's running.
Frost: I'm offering you a truce. I want you with us.
Blade: What do you think, I'm stupid? [in vampire tongue] "The spirits of the twelve will awaken La Magra."
Frost: You're familiar with the blood god.
Blade: Frost, you're nothing to me but another dead vampire.
Frost: You're an idiot, you know that? I came down here offering you an easy way out and you spit it right back in my fuckin' face. [Blade reaches for his gun] Careful. [Lifts the girl into the air]
Blade: What do I care? They're cattle. Just like you said.
Frost: If you want to take the hard road, be my guest, pal. But I promise you, by the time this is over, you're gonna wish they never cut you from your mother's--

Whistler: Frost took her. Listen to me. The disk. We decoded it. Frost is tryin' to trigger a fuckin' vampire apocalypse. There's some kind of... vampire god he's trying to resurrect.
Blade: La Magra.
Whistler: You're the key. He needs your blood. The blood of the Daywalker. You're the chosen one. Listen to me, Blade. You can't go after him.
Blade: Bullshit.
Whistler: If Frost gets his hands on you, it's all over. There'll be armies of the motherfuckers. [Blade wipes one of his wounds] Shit. You're going to have to finish me off. Don't want me comin' back.
Blade: We can treat the wounds.
Whistler: It's too far gone. You know that. Give me your gun.
Blade: No.
Whistler: Give me the goddamn gun. [Blade reluctantly hands him the gun] Now walk away, you stupid son of a bitch. [Blade doesn't move] Walk the fuck away.
[Blade walks away. A gunshot is heard as he does]

Frost: You seem a bit tense. A bit pent up, maybe. Like you need to release something. You know? Blade not... giving it to you, maybe? I don't know. I just... I see such a beautiful woman. Great skin. I'd like to see you happy, that's all.
Dr. Karen Jenson: Is this the part where you offer to turn me?
Frost: Well, it's either that or a body bag.
Dr. Karen Jenson: Go ahead. Bite me. I'll just cure myself. I did it before, and I can do it again.
Frost: There is no cure, baby.
Dr. Karen Jenson: There is if you've been bitten. If you were once... human.
[Frost smokes a cigarrette. She notices he is wearing a band-aid]
Dr. Karen Jenson: How'd you get that scar, Deacon? A born vampire would have the power to regenerate from birth. You must've gotten scarred. Before you were turned. Isn't that right? Vampires like you aren't a species. You're just infected. A virus, a sexually transmitted disease.
Frost: I'll tell you what we are, sister: We're the top of the fucking food chain. The Blood God's comin' and after tonight, you people are fuckin' history. He's a hurricane. An act of god. Anyone caught in his path will instantly be turned. Everyone you've ever known. Everyone you've ever fucking loved. It won't matter who's pure-blood and who's not. How are you goin' to cure the whole fucking world? [Stands] And Blade's blood is the key.

Quinn: Deac, I don't think you understand. This dude is fuckin' bad.
Frost: What?
Quinn: He's like --We had 20 guys around him, man. I was there man, and he's got shit he throws at you--
Frost: [Mocking Quinn] Yeah, he's got the sword and shit, yeah? He throws it in the air, catches it underneath. Yeah? Shut the fuck up! Look, make it happen. It's one guy on foot.

Frost: Let's see this sword of yours. [Mercury tosses him Blade's sword] Titanium, right? Acid-etched. I'll get used to a weapon like this. [Turns the security device off in Blade's face] What? You look surprised. I told you, Blade. I know everything about you. Hold out your arm Quinn.
Quinn: Why, man? I mean, these are like all better.
Frost: Hold out your arm. Now.
Quinn: Deac, I-- [Extends his arm]
Frost: [Prepares to cut off Quinn's arm] Just kidding. [Tosses the sword back to Mercury]
Quinn: [Laughs loudly] He was fuckin' with me, man! I mean he was like fuckin'...
Dr. Karen Jenson: [Whispers] Blade. Blade.
Frost: He can't hear you, honey. The thirst has got him now. [Quinn hands him the EDTA vials] What do we have here? The precious serum. How long's it been since you shot up? 12, 13 hours maybe? [Holds a vial to Blade's face] Bet your just dyin' for a drink, aren't you? What's it feel like? Is your blood on fire?
Blade: Try some. You might like it.
Frost: Thanks, but I prefer the real thing. In any event, I don't think you'll be needing these anymore.
[Frost throws them into the abyss]

Frost: Tonight, the age of man comes to an end. No more compromises.
Quinn: We're gonna be gods.
Frost: Of course we are.
Quinn: I'm gonna be naughty. I'm gonna be a naughty vampire god!

Mercury: Deacon?
Frost: Not anymore.

Blade: FROST!
Frost: Kill him.
Quinn: Wait! I owe you, man. I got two new hands, Blade, and I don't know which one to use to kill you with!
[Quinn runs to Blade, who decapitates him]

[Blade has cut Frost's arm off, then cut him in half, only for him to reattatch himself]
Blade: [Mouths] What the fuck?
Frost: You're too late, Blade. [Regrows his arm]

Dr. Karen Jenson: I need to get back to the lab if I'm going to cure you.
Blade: It's not over. You keep your cure. There's still a war going on and I've got a job to do. You want to help, make me a better serum.

[Last lines, in Moscow]
Russian Woman: It's cold. Where are we going?
Russian Vampire: It's a suprise.
Russian Woman: Surprise? I like surprises.
Russian Vampire: Then you'll like this. [Attacks her]
Blade: [In Russian] Zastal nevovremya, tovarisch? (Catch you at a bad time, comrade?)
