Description
SVO162: Blue Anodized Aluminum 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.

Pros: Weight, None
Cons: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip
Good Value
The main POU for this knife is a cheap beater knife that will stay sharp and you won't care if it rusts. If you are looking for a knife with nice "fit and finish" run in the other direction. The handle scales are scratched and are drilled in slightly different places on each of the handles, making them offset. The blade has a two-tone finish that is pretty good looking from far away, but if you inspect it, you can see that there is a lot of discoloration and pitting. It comes reasonably sharp and there is no side-to-side blade play (of course there is up-and-down, it is a friction folder). The opening is meant to be difficult if you closed it hard, but is easy if you closed it lightly. There is excellent friction when the blade is open, but is still easy to close. This is a good knife for hard-use, not as much for showing off.

Pros: Blade Material, Weight, Blade Sharpness, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Handle Material
Decent blade, definitely not the best
The blade itself is okay, but the handle and operation are dissappointing. I've dismantled the knife and threw out the handle. I'll use the blade for a handle making project. That's about all I can say.

Cons: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, None
I own the polymer handled version in blue.
When Knifecenter introduced the polymer handled versions, I snatched one up (blue) immediately...while I can't speak to the exact quality of this aluminum handled version...I can tell you, the steel sharpens up like a DREAM. It's non-stainless, so put some Sentry Tuff Glide on there & no worries, Svord makes EXCELLENT quality stuff at very fair prices. Some people may dislike the lack of a clip, or the strange "friction" "lock" design, though it looks like these new ones have a button lock maybe? Either way, this brand outperforms other knives that cost 10x more.
