This is interesting...I can't tell if it's a fillet knife, a Bowie on Slim-Fast or a derivative of a Filipino/Japanese design, almost the best of all thrown into a blender. Very nice taper on the vertical profile. The part that will make this one stand out is how you work the steel just below the handle in front of the scales, it needs a decision: do you taper into the edge from the handle, work it out away from and curving back towards the handle like a Persian design, or square it off and use a strong corner? When I first looked at the tip, I thought it needed a recurve at the end 1/3 of the blade, but there's not enough steel there to do it without making things look stupid (my opinion). I like the profile except for that lower corner, nice piece!
