I have something very similar, but without the offset head. Works great!

They're ok for "general" basic craft such as making cards etc...

I found the actual blade rod too thick and was basically "in the way" when trying to see to do something intricate..
also there's the feeling of dragging or scraping a bit of rough steel over the thing you're cutting instead of the "fine and precision" feel to a scalpel.
The handle, although very ergonomic, felt bulky to me as well, where as my trusty swann morton scalpel always feels delicate in the fingers.

i suppose at the end of the day it's what youre used to ...
