I just tried to post the pics again ... not sure how to get them to show up in the thread without having to click on the links in the original post above.

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.

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."

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.

Thanks Otto Pilot for posting the pics for me ... I forgot how to do it.

Does look like a roll knife. The knife came from my father-in-law estate and he was a commercial seine boat captain/owner back in the day. The bow in the knife was made that way and not by use neglect. Knowing dad, he could of used this knife for just about anything.
