I was asked what kind of knife I use to cut bridges. This is not the exact knife but is very similar to mine. My handle is longer but that is the only difference. Using Exacto knives works but the blades flex too much and when you least want it to it loosens up. If you plan on working on violins at all, do yourself a favor and get a good knife and good wet stones. A tip, after sharpening with water stones or oil stone use a polishing wheel with compound. The resulting edge will be much sharper than a scalple.
