    Thank you for the info. I didn't know it's called that.

    However, I don't think it's a filet knife either. Nor a boning knife. This because of the serrations i the front of the blade. They are small but they are there. I can't really see how the serrations would help you when you're filleting fish nor deboning a piece of meat. But i reckon your guess is as good as mine. Because I haven't got a clue

    I do believe it may be a tomato knife -- Google found these photos of such things:





    But these two from Amazon are even uglier:

    That bottom one looks a lot like a cheese knife (although they usually do not have serrations)

    My knife is only serrated the first 3 inches. Here's a picture of it.

    I have one small filleting knife and its so flexible, also the inox blades made of takes quite an edge.

    No it's a maker named Pontus Holmberg from Eskilstuna. It's in stainless which means that it's probably made from 12C27. Most of the old Eskilstuna is made from 12C27 from sandvik. But Karlsson/Nilsson also came from Eskilstuna. So i would think that your knife also is made from 12C27.

    Don't be knocking the cheese knife....I actually use mine all the time. Dang fine tool!

    But while we are on the topic of the ugliest knife; I was cruising the CKTG site and looked at his best seller list. Yup, one of the top sellers is the Ken Onion Chef knife.

    Not that ugly but interesting.

    That's interesting. Looks like someone was trying to design the best way to get the most out of a sheet of steel, and wound up designing an art piece.

    This graphic captures the concept a bit better, which is quite interesting:
