    This knife belonged to my Father. Obviously it is a specialty blade. Can anyone tell me what this knife was used for?

    not seen one like that before, the bit on the end makes me think its a gutting knife, have seen similar things on modern knives.

    As a trapper i will say it is a great old knife. I would put my bet in it being used in the fur trade. I still use simular knives for skining and fleshing furs

    Interesting. Hopefully someone can identify what the edge is for.

    No, this is not the same. I am familiar with these gut hook knives, but on the knife I have it is not a hook & it is not ground to an edge.

    That was a question I was going to ask (Is the top edge ground for cutting).

    No SSG, the top edge is not ground to a sharp edge.

    As you can see this part has not been ground. The back edge appears ground, but in fact it is NOT ground to give a sharp edge, it remains the same as the back of the blade.

    Here is the other side. The main part of the blade is ground only on this side to a sharp edge.

    Thanks for the blow up of the tip Keith. Definitely hope someone identifies it. Don't see very many knives ground on one edge anymore.
