Description
SVO150: Steel Zinc 3" Peasant Knife
Svord
 
Not just any old knife, but the B.W. Baker Peasant Knife. Such an old concept that it's new; so new that it's old. B.W. Baker, Master Cutler, felt that the idea of creating his latest knife range was calling to him from the past. Using old fashioned methods and relying on the oldest low-tech methods, Svord proudly present their Peasant Knife. What does it do? Well, it cuts. Sure, there are knives around today that sprout scissors, sawblades, an entire motor mechanic's tool kit, laser beams and micro cell phones. Such knives have lost the very reason for their existence - that's high-tech for you. If you want a knife, a knife to cut things with, the Svord Peasant Knife is for you.

If you've got style, you've got the class to be a first-rate peasant. Peasants are proud. Who actually did anything in history? Royalty? Nobility? Leaders? No way. We peasants carried the can for centuries. We also carried Peasant Knives too. The B.W. Baker Peasant Knife, from the days when peasants had pockets, but no money to fill them. Just the knife. The B.W. Baker Peasant Knife is based on models used in Bohemia and Bavaria 3 - 400 years ago. It's easy to use, easy to carry and to open. But it's awfully hard to put down. You can open it one-handed. Hang it from your belt or whisk from your pocket by its handy tang. Beautifully simple, but crafted by Svord from the finest steel, hardened and tempered to a secret formula. All peasants know value when they see it. Beware of imitations!

Peasant Knife fun. Tap it open - snap it shut- click it, flick it. Whittle the hours away. Pare your nails. Sharpen your writing stick. Free hostages.... Every hovel should have one (or more!) Remember: "Peasants rule, and your knife's your tool". The ultimate exclusive possession - your B.W. Baker Peasant Knife. Older than yesterday, but fascinatingly later than tomorrow. Svord, by appointment to peasants of the world, from executives to errand boys.

Stainless Steel knife handles provide strength and durability while using chromium oxide to create a rust-resistant barrier.
Carbon Steel

Generally harder and will be able to take and hold a very good edge. They are susceptible to rusting and must be oiled after using them or before putting them away for an extended time.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Type, Handle Feel
Good for the money, especially if you plan on making your own handles.
Upon opening the box I can remember a foul odor coming from it, from what i cannot be certain but it was bad. The knife came out of the plastic packaging pretty sharp aside from the tip. You can wash off the colouring on the rest of the knife very easily, I used industrial acetone on it and hit it with sandpaper and it just flew off. The knife steel seemed of excellent quality for the price though and if you are a customer from the UK this is legal and much safer to user than a slip lock. If you are willing to tweak it and do a bit of work it worth the money.

Pros: Blade Material, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Handle Material
Great blade, poor handles
I bought this knife knowing I was going to switch out the handles. Got some micarta on ebay for 10 bucks, used the original handles as a template, and a few hours later had an amazing looking and folding knife. I also like the fact that Svord makes all their own hardware so I retained the brass screws. For the price you really can't beat this knife.
