Wedge Pattern

The Wedge pattern's name describes its configuration quite well. 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.)
