Looks like it has been rode hard and put up wet!   A bit of tlc, and it should cut like new!

I've done a couple of filet knives that look just like that one. One thing I did to the handle that makes it work better for me is to thin it down some. I like to get as much of the blade closer to the meat as I can when fileting. The thickness of the handle puts too much of an angle when fileting as it is.
