I have to admit that I never heard of a Nessmuk til coming to the BF and it seems that this knife design is very popular. Can I ask why? I've looked at many different ones and always wondered. Just by looking at a picture, it seems as if it would be a hefty chopper. But often that is not so. The majority of them I've seen are more of a medium sized knife. The blade looks like it would be an excellent skinner, there's plenty of belly. But other than that, I'm lost. Why is this knife so popular. If you have one and love it, please help me to see what I'm missing.
