Description
SVO132: 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.

I'm hooked
I own some much more expensive Benchmade's, Spyderco's etc.. but I have been EDC'ing this 13 dollar gem since I got it. There is something about the simplicity of it that is really fantastic, and the while it didn't arrive too sharp, the carbon steel blade did not take too long to sharpen to hair-whittling. The handle material is a little sloppy, but it is a 13 dollar knife. Some nice micarta handles, and a good sheath, and it would be a near perfect non-locking blade at 2x the price. Check out the dimensions carefully, though, it's not small, the handle is large (especially with the tang), and it doesn't fit in the backpocket next to the wallet as well as a stockman or trapper slipjoint would, overall, awesome blade, I'll be buying a sheath and another color very soon.

Best bang for the buck!
The Svord PK is at first look a cheap looking knife. But once you use it and carry it is anything but. The plastic handles are simple and really easy to mod. The blade is just perfect. The design is utilitarian and effective. The PK has replaced my Benchmade, Bladetech and Opinel as my choice EDC. Svord hit the nail on the head with this one. I will be buying more to mod. The blade is really easy to etched/stain. Mustard works the easiest. Paint it on let it sit an hour or so and rinse.

It sneaks up on you
When I unwrapped the Svord Peasant, I thought it was one of the ugliest knives I have ever seen. I threw it in a drawer and didn't think about it much until the day when I couldn't find my Stanley Utility Knife to open some boxes. The Svord outperformed the Stanley in every way, especially at cutting up cardboard, opening "blister packaging", sharpening pencils, cutting strapping tape...you know, the everyday cutting stuff we all do. Sure, the retractable "utility knife" is great if you don't mind buying and changing out blades a lot, but this little beast, all you gotta do is touch up the edge. I now have five of them.
