SVO132: Peasant Knife


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.

3" Peasant knife review
I've wanted this style of knife with a swing arm reminiscent of a the old cutthroat razors my grandpa used for many years, but the price has always been prohibitively expensive. I really liked the look of this knife when I first saw it, enough to buy one. It is roughly finished, and I had to add a para-cord loop into the folding eye to assist in closing without trapping fingers between the blade and handle. It feels well in the hand but will benefit from sharpening it properly. The Hots:It has a solid carbon steel blade, and the whole thing looks and feel good, but the finish is lacking.When holding it properly, your own hand prevents it from closing on your fingers. Folds up and fits in a pocket. The Not so Hots:The blade has a barely passable machine ground secondary bevel edge on it rather a scandi grind edge, which would be so much sharper and easier to maintain, don't expect this to be as sharp as say a Morakniv straight out of the box.The wooden handle version I been sent looks and feels like the two scales are slightly mismatched, and the varnish finish is really badly applied. so bad in fact it is missing in places. The bigger 3" version is just about small enough to put in your pocket.The whole knife is held together with two brass screw rivets so I think I may well take it apart over winter and finish it off when its too wet to go out doors

Simplicity Defined
I ordered this knife about a month ago with a couple more expensive blades. I never got a chance to fully check it out until last weekend. I usually order knives at least twice per month and have been busy using other purchases for work and recreation. When I pulled it out of the shipping box for the first time, I thought it was a bit odd and even crude and I left it in a drawer at my lake house. This knife saw heavy use last weekend and it held up very well. The CS blade can take a lot of abuse while remaining no worse for wear. It's not the usual type of knife I would purchase, but it's a very useful tool that I will continue to use at the lake. It is what it is.

Cons: None
Someday I will make my own really nice birdseye maple handle.
I really love these knives and preach about them when ever I can. I find infinite use for the tang, prying, scraping, poking and such, a real multi tool and sturdy too. High carbon steel blade, the stuff that real tools are made of not some crappy stainless. Fits in the pocket comfortably. The only knife I ever owned the I've liked well enough to carry religiously day in and out. Love the simple historic design. I bought this wood handle knife to replace the one I have with plastic handle for re-enactment and such. Rated this so high ( I would rate the less expensive plastic handled version of this knife 5/5) because of all the quality in materials and design I've mentioned above and the very reasonable price but the finnish work is not that of a high end knife i.e. the wood is a bit rough and the finnish coating slightly drippy. As I say someday I will make my own beautiful wooden handle for this knife.
