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.

Truly Enjoyable
This knife helped me remember what knives are all about. Quality is better than the price reflects. Practicality and usefulness are yet to be put to a hard test but so far, great knife.

Exactly as it should be
There are no illusions about this knife. It is called a peasant knife for a reason. It is a useful knife but it's not designed to be safe, or pretty, or lightweight. The metal is not state of the art and the handles aren't carbon fiber. And that's ok. Because it's still AWESOME! I don't use mine on a daily basis but I would have no qualms about taking it camping or fishing. In its essence, It's a minimalist survival tool! Keep it oiled and sharp, and just enjoy it! It's unique...

just what i was hoping for.
I bought this knife to modify for basic edc / bushcraft work. I made my own olive wood scales, polished, jimped, and re profiled the blade, the edge was sharp, but i wanted it a little cleaner. then i gave it a cider vinegar patina to help protect the blade. i carry it everyday for daily cutting tasks, and take it in the woods where i have made feather sticks, split kindling, struck a ferro rod, cut food, spread penut butter etc. Also, i am going to the UK in the early summer and this will be my UK legal carry knife when i am hiking, the friction lock and 3" blade are perfect.The blade steel is great, and the handle, although very basic looking, is a great ergonomic shape, so i traced the old handle shape onto my olive wood.
