    I gave away two Thai ones that look remarkably like those even similar handle construction albeit much cruder.

    Do you take the knife to the stones or the stones to the knife.

    I have a couple of Thai knives of the same general shape I bought in Bangkok but they are much smaller. I also have a knife I bought in Southern China that is about the same size and shape but much heavier on the spine. I guess this style makes sense to meat cutters and fish mongers around the world (even it it doesn't to me).

    Those knives are quite typical for fishmongers and butchers in Spain, I'd say 90% use them, as far as I know they are sharpened with a grinding wheel. You can get them starting from 30 euros, http://www.cuchilleriaalbacete.com/c...erie-2900.html

    That Spanish catalog certianly had a wide selection of them! I bought mine in a cutlery shop that was part of the market but had to settle for a medium size one. Trying to pack home one of the really large ones would have put my luggage over weight.

    Reminds me of the CCK 'Lil Rhino and Big Rhino knives. I've always wanted one, just can't see when I would ever use it. I think this picture gave me a reason, lol. Now to just convince the fiancée...
