The wrangler is the more straight-edged version of the stockman pocket knives. It typically has 3 blades: a clip, a sheep’s foot, and a spey blade. It is usually a middle-sized stockman. It comes in a “boxier” shape than the prototypical stockman body which has a subtle S-shaped profile.
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.
