If that’s an existing profile that you need to match I would say it’s a custom grind probably for a moulding head. Fingernail and table edge profiles are similar but tend to be more like finger/table edge profiles where that seems more like srtraight slopes of different angles. I can’t tell without having it to measure but the slope to the left side might be 45* with the secondary slope around 20-25*. I have some raised panel bits approximately that slope but they have guide bearings and I think you would need them without. You might be able to find bits to do that but I think it would be a 3 pass operation.

Alternatively you could cut a section off that and send it to Whiteside and have them grind you a custom bit.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
