Hultafors knives are great and we all love them. The heavy duty version is a beast and it's useful as a beater but I've always found it a little cumbersome. However it doesn't take much to turn it into a great little everyday user..
It's just a case of dropping the point of the blade, and changing the handle shape to make it more comfortable for long use. A final refinement in thinning down the edge bevels and you have a superb working knife for very little outlay.
