Abstract Laser-induced field emission of electrons from metallic nanotips has been well studied. Unfortunately, nanotips suffer low damage thresholds with enhanced fields around 10 GV/m. The nanoblade, akin to a nanotip extruded in one lateral dimension, may reach upwards of 40 GV/m due to its robust thermomechanical properties. This increased surface field promises brighter electron emissions. We perform simulations of strong-field emissions from metallic nanoblades via the 1-D time-dependent Schr\"odinger equation with effective Jellium and nonlinear collective image charge potentials, including the strong field gradients induced by the nanostructure. We measure spectra and yields and compare to recent experiments. Potential analytical forms of image potential limited yield for a spectrally rich emission are presented. Calculations of mean transverse energy are provided as well as a prospective method of mitigation with the goal of increasing brightness.
