    Hi Scotchef32.
    Banana knives are double edge knifes used for cutting out the bunches and testing the fruit it's shape is so that it does not damage or pierce the fruit .
    and of course there still made today here is a little close up of the edges .

    Sophie says she thinks it reads SA R A au du K G nti, I think judging by the letters it could be SABATIER A au fondu K Garanti. She says it is carbon steel and someone took a sander to it and maybe a buffing wheel and messed it up. I actually haven't handled this one. It isn't chef's. Judging by the fact that it has copper bird's eye rivets and not brass I would say it dates to around the turn of the century maybe 1900-1910 or so. The only other one I saw was chef's and I can't remember if it was a Nogent or this style handle. Hope this helps

    Couldn't see the mark on your pic, but could it have been something like this one:

    The second line is "acier fondu", melted steel (?).

    probably "crucible steel" which would be melted steel.
