Search Engines settings file location

Can anyone point me to which file in particular contains the info for our custom search engines? I assume it's in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data\Default, but though I see Bookmarks, Notes, and Login Data files, I don't see one for the custom search engines. My installation is a bit buggy, and I want to reset as much of my profile as I can. However, I've built up 21 custom search engines (i.e., type "z boat" and it searches Amazon for boats) and I really, really don't want to remake them all by hand, especially as I'm almost certain they aren't the culprit for my installation's bugginess.

On my Mac the CSEs can be found in what looks like JSON format in the binary file```
~/Library/Application Support/Vivaldi/Default/Local App Settings/lpognoqbmildjkofajabpdfhtoklimli/000003.log
Looks like you're on Windows, so this may not be helpful, but my approach to finding the file was to make a CSE for Amazon and name it `amazizzle`, then go to `~/Library/Application Support/Vivaldi` and run `grep -r amazizzle *`.
