Kershaw Boa blade design

Mar 21, 2000
The Boa is do out soon, the blade has a belly or steep curve upward toward the pivot. What is the efficiency of this type of blade, and what are the positive and negative aspects of this type of curve in the blade.

Thank you for any information!
I hope I can get one before fall, be for I go hunting. Love to try it as a skinner. I always use one for gutting and another for skinning.
