The here shown form of the blade
is interpreted, to be a cheese server
; that’s in more or less all of the West European's cultures.
But a nearly similar form of the blade
is there also interpreted to be a fish knife
. Another, less in dimensions
, would be a fruit knife
. Or much more little
, it’s being used as a knife for sweets
. Well, that’s always a question of cultures, and of the dimensions too.
A similar interpretation you could find in America too: http://www.silvercollecting.com/silverm ... knives.jpg
I’ve seen a similar blade, with an additional hump
, being the blade of an European cheese server — well, that server was designed in a Â»Neo-Renaissance
Â« style of the last quarter of the XIX century.
My interpretation of the “notch
” is: To be a visual sign of prevention
, that the same knife wouldn’t be used for butter.
