SVOPKMPNK: Peasant Knife Mini 2.5"
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 possesion - 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: Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material, Weight, Handle Material, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Needs work
Knife is overall good and uses good materials, but it does need some work from the user. On my knife, there was nothing holding the scales apart from each other besides the blade and the stop pin near the front of the knife, which caused the back of the scales to pinch my hand while I was using it. I cut off a small piece from an old belt and made a makeshift backspacer. The blade is left unfinished and comes with a black coating that I had to strip off with sandpaper because it made everything that it came in contact smell like iron. The blade wasn't all that sharp, but that shouldn't ever be considered a real issue, but the grinds are not symmetrical, which is somewhat of an issue. Overall, I highly recommend the knife, which can be a fun project to spend a weekend on that results in a pretty good knife, but it probably won't be so fun for complete beginners.

L6 steel. Nice!
This knife looks like it would be a pain in the neck, but, unbelievably, it's not. The steel are soft RC by today's standards (54-56, so I hear) and they are made of L6 steel (non stainless). I re-profiled to convex with 150, 220, 400, 800, 1000, and 1500 wet/dry sandpaper. It took some time and effort, but because the steel is soft, not bad. Lots of fun to watch the convex edge emerge. Then, a few strops with the leather. L6 takes a great edge--equal to or better than anything else I have, other than my Spyderco ZDP-189 steel which is made by the Gods. I use knives for cutting, nothing else. I respect the edge and the work I put into it, so when I need it, it's there for me. The thing is, once you have a a good edge on it, and don't abuse it by doing things with it it was never designed to do, when it finally goes dull, you can bring the edge back up with, literally, less than a minute of mindful stropping. Probably less than 30 seconds. IIt's fun to have a modern super-steel that takes forever to sharpen, and the edge never gets as sharp as old-school steels like L6. It's also fun, and probably more pragmatic, to have an old-school knife. They both are great, but you are doing yourself a disservice by ignoring the old-school stuff. Plus, this knife is inexpensive, does a great job, and is made in New Zealand. Cool
