Here you go. No idea what it is, but I can at least post it from my imgur acct.
Aeronautics confers beauty and grandeur, combining art and science for those who devote themselves to it. . . . The aeronaut, free in space, sailing in the infinite, loses himself in the immense undulations of nature. He climbs, he rises, he soars, he reigns, he hurtles the proud vault of the azure sky. — Georges Besançon

I work at a printer and the guys in the press call those roll knives. They use them to cut and splice paper rolls to be fed into the presses.
Of course, that particular knife could have been used for just about anything.

Whatever it is, it looks like it's taken a bow.
regarding that it could have been used for just about anything, I agree. I have a kitchen utility knife from the defunct Sharper Image. It's my favorite letter opener as I can sharpen it very nicely for slitting open envelopes. I have the bevel set at 10 degrees.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

I have seen similar blade shape on two knives used for different uses.
The first was my father's knife that he used as a sailmaker, so in my household, such a knife was always referred to as a "sailmaker's knife".
The second time I saw that blade shape was for an arborist's knife. Used for trimming and splicing plants. I believe that the arborist's knife was also made in Germany, and may have been a right hand chisel grind, rather than balanced.
Neither knife was a fixed or bowed blade, however. Both were folders.
"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012
"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."
Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888
