Sheepfoot, or rescue blades, are notable due to their lack of a pointed tip. This lack of an acute tip diminishes the chance of poking or puncturing anything when cutting in emergency situations. Rounded blades readily slide under clothing and bindings making them the preferred blade shape of emergency technicians, rescue personnel and anyone working around livestock.
The other type of blade common on rescue knives is a modified tanto point (making it a stronger point), making it a versatile knife, great for EMS/rescue as well as survival situations.
