Re: The shape of a western boning knife

This design also provides an arc'd tip which is still stiff. This gives you a longer cutting edge without increasing knife length. With tip work you can make fairly long deeper cuts with control by using a little wrist . This is helpful by not having to "wield" your knife around. It's a lot less tiring as well. Curved skinning knives use this same concept. You can make a longer slice around the carcass as its hanging in front of you, instead of extending your arm uncomfortably and unsafely away from yourself. Don't know if this was the designers attempt, this is what I think is useful about it.
