Since we started stocking knives in our shop, I’ve read a lot of knife reviews—enough to become really impressed with knife reviewers. These experts are nothing if not meticulous; they provide technical details about the steel used for the blade, the length of the tang, the balance of the handle, etc. They treat knives as something akin to high art.
But I’m not one of those people, and this isn’t one of those reviews. Because the Hultafors knife I’ll review in this piece is the furthest thing from a piece of art. It’s a utilitarian tool, and it’s priced accordingly.
