Cutting Horse (Sowbelly)

The lil’ cuttin’ horse is akin to the sowbelly stockman and is even referred to often times as a cutting horse sowbelly stockman. It typically comes in a larger size than a sowbelly stockman. It usually has 3 blades: a clip, a sheep’s foot, and a spey blade. The sowbelly part of the name comes from the subtle S-shaped profile of the pocket knife, giving it the look of a pig belly’s underside (more pronounced than in the premium stockman or serpentine stockman). Traditionally, the cutting horse tends to be a hefty and solid sampling of a stockman.

All of the stockman patterns point back to the cowboy of the early west as to their origins. The name comes from the types who carried it: the cattleman or stockman. The spey blade had a particular usefulness for cattle (true to its namesake)…let’s just say it had to do with the males of the species.
