  • a. a body defining a forward end and a rearward end, and wherein the body at the rearward end defines oppositely facing first and second sides; and

    b. a body extension member extending from the rearward end of the body, wherein the body extension member defines a rearward section located rearwardly of the rearward end of the body and a generally flat forwardly facing pointed section located outwardly of the rearward section, wherein the rearward section defines a pair of spaced apart outer edges, and wherein the forwardly facing pointed section defines an inner edge and an outer edge, wherein the body extension member defines an arcuate outer peripheral edge that extends rearwardly from the first side of the rearward end of the body toward the second side of the rearward end of the body, wherein the outer peripheral edge defines a first one of the outer edges of the rearward section and also defines the outer edge of the forwardly facing pointed section, wherein the pointed section defines a point located outwardly of the second side of the rearward end of the body, and wherein the rearward section and the pointed section of the body extension member cooperate to define a forwardly and outwardly facing notch at the second side of the rearward end of the body, wherein the notch extends rearwardly and inwardly from the point defined by the pointed section and is located between a second one of the outer edges of the rearward section and the inner edge of the pointed section of the body extension member, wherein the notch defines a vertex and includes first and second divergent edges that extend outwardly from the vertex, wherein the inner edge of the pointed section defines the first edge of the notch and extends between the vertex and the point and wherein the second one of the outer edges of the rearward section defines the second edge of the notch and extends from the vertex forwardly toward the second side of the rearward end of the body and terminates thereat, and wherein the second one of the outer edges of the rearward section extends only forwardly from the vertex to the second side of the rearward end of the body and has no portion which extends rearwardly between the vertex and the second side of the rearward end of the body.
