Mumbleypeg wrote:The shape of your knife is called "serpentine", which has nothing do with whether or not it is a stockman, although some stockman knives are built on a serpentine frame. The blades determine whether a knife is a stockman pattern. A stockman typically has three blades, one of which is usually a spay blade. The other blades most often include a clip master blade and a sheepfoot or a pen as the other secondary. As with most things cutlery related there are exceptions.
If you can post a picture of the knife with blades open, we can tell what pattern it is.

Hard to say from your pictures but is it possible the larger of the secondary blades has been reshaped from a spay blade?
