Half Wedge

Half Wedge Pattern

The half wedge is quite similar to the Wedge in its layout but is typically less wide at the poll. The progression of the cheek and body from the poll is consistent and “flat”, creating a “wedge” like shape. The bottom edge approaching the heel may or may not have a curvature, but in those with a curve, it is generally minimal.

The Wedge patterns are generally thought to have originated in the northeast, Maine in particular.

(As always, please remember that there is significant variance in the patterns made by different manufacturers, and this description is merely a guide for assistance in identification.)
