SVO136: 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.

Kiwi Goodness
It's a very interesting friction folder, probably new to most people. There is no lock or spring; the blade is held between the handle scales by two adjustable screws. When you grip the handle, your palm holds the blade in the open position. Exposed tang is comfortable, so don't worry. The blade is a carbon steel with good hardness that stood up to batoning. One minor problem, the tip of the blade touched the rear screw/rivet when closed. I solved this by installing a larger diameter pin. It would be fine had I left it, but I'm a little obsessive. This is a robust, simple design that should serve you well for years. For the price, it's a great product.

Sharp and simple
Takes a wicked edge (heard a rumour it was L6 steel to 57Rc, but in any case, it is good carbon steel). When open, is very secure - I'd probably trust it more than any other locking folding knife, as to close it, the extended tang would have to go through your palm. Best value for a pocket knife anywhere. Lots of fun to flip open and closed with one hand, and you can change the tension that sandwiching the blade using the brass screw rivets holding it together. Brilliant!

Neat Knife!
For what this knife is, it is great! If your looking for a tactical folder or a self defense knife, or maybe even an EDC folder, this isn't it. If your looking for a dead simple, easy to sharpen knife for your vehicle, general house use, or general purpose use, give it a try.I have to qualify the EDC portion of my statement by saying that there are some for whom EDC would be just fine. That's a function of personal taste. I have also seen a few reviews in which this was used as a woods knife. Here again, personal taste though I see no reason why it wouldn't be just fine in that regard. I think this would be a great farm knife as well.Look, it's a simple design that works, and it's 15 bucks. It's an inexpensive, functional and neat addition to anyone's collection!
