    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.

    I'd want some TruGlo sights on the rear though.

    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.
