    What kind of knife is this?

    I have a knife that I don't know what it's for. I'll describe it.

    It's about 9" long. Starting from the handle, it curves in slightly, and then begins to curve out so the blade gets fatter as you travel up the blade. The fattest part of the blade is about 2" from the tip, and it curves back in to a pointed tip. It's got no markings on it except "Stainless Steel Taiwan".

    I have no idea what it's for. It's not exactly the best knife. It's a bit loose in the handle and it's not full tang, it goes about 3/4 of the way through the handle.

    It looks a little bit like this, but the curve is more pronounced, with the thickest part being wider:




    Code:
                                                                                                        ________________________________
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|                                \

      `.                                                  .................  ------- ......__          |                                  \
          `‘ -  _________  ------- ‘‘“““‘‘‘‘““ `````````                                       ``‘‘‘‘--|___________________________________\


    Thanks.

    Some carving/slicer knives have similar shape to what you describe.

    Something like this:

    It's a scimitar, used for butchering.

    You should draw the knife out with, you know, a pen and paper instead of ASCII Art.

    Actually it looks quite a bit like that.

    Sorry I don't have access to a camera right now. If it helps I can post a photo tomorrow. But it really has the same curve shape as this photo. But it's definitely a kitchen knife.
