The knife you have is called a Clip Point. Also known for years as a Bowie Knife. Some Clip point knives are also called Sabre Clip point, these have a double bevel design. The upper beveled portion is not suppose to be sharp, but I know a few people that have sharpened it too also serve a specific purpose for their needs. This shape blade is also used on folding knives by many knife manufacturers.
I much prefer a Drop Point blade on my folders. There are many different types of cutting edges that are available, each has a specific use as well as a specific purpose.
You need to purchase an inexpensive skinner/gutting knife for your needs, it's a knife designed with the proper gutting hook.
Hope this information helps you.
KEEP ON PUFFING!!!
