Here's a knife style that I've never had sent in for sharpening, only seen them online, and I'm wondering if anyone has one of these? I'm betting the answer will be no.

is that a UK style knife to prevent the knife from becoming a stabbing weapon?

How does it help with frozen foods? My thought was it fitted in some jig so it could be used like a kind of guillotine with the knob being used as a pivot point.

the handle near the tip improves leverage. frozen foods are had to cut.

Huh.interesting...the other day I was just thinking there must be a better way of cutting frozen foods. When we make sausage, we use frozen meat. Thawed a little, but pretty damn frozen and I just use a crappy house knife to hack it to pieces, but its a real pain (and strain on my body).

Is the user supposed to rest his palm on that thing on the front?

Sounds a little painful...

It's much easier to pre-cut the meat into strips, lay em out on a sheet pan and par freeze before grinding...

We used to attached a knob of sorts on the front of a large chef knife when I worked at a bbq place. The idea was it was so messy and saucy that when using the knife to press down through bones or cartilage it would prevent slipping.

That's a shark of a knife . . . just when you thought it was safe to go back into the kitchen . . .
Wow, what sort of steel is that to be able to take that kind of punishment like whacking it on frozen food?

Frozen food... PFFH!
It's pretty obvious that this is the coldwar-atomic-submarine-threat-tribute-knife. :)

A few makers produce these things. My Sakai Takayuki catalog lists 300 & 330mm versions.
I've never seen anyone actually use one though, and don't have a clue what the 'fin' is for.

NO ChoP!

The first time I saw one of these I thought the same thing.

I've seem them on Ichimonji's site, but that doesn't answer the question.
