Very nice knife! Please excuse the newbie question, but what is a knife of this shape generally used for?

Scimitar is usually used to break down large cuts of meat.

Thanks, Mike! I appreciate you taking the time to answer... I have seen several (cool) examples on this forum, but always wondered what tasks best suit this knife.
