SVOPKMBLK: 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: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Blade Material
The best friction folder for the money, honest!
Like the Opinels, the Svörd Peasant Mini is a superb knife for what you pay. Though the Peasant comes in a few sizes, the Mini is perfect as a small EDC. You don't need a pocket clip, as it is light and small enough to carry in your pocket, though carrying it in a sheath is my preferred way. So easy to open and use, I must share that the Mini has become one of my favorites. I only wish there was a choice for carbon or stainless, as keeping a carbon steel blade clean can be difficult when traveling. Still, for all my other chores, I have no complaints with this little gem. Recommended.

Timeless design
This type of "friction folder" or peasant knife goes back millennia. This particular version, made in New Zealand, is a perfect blend of traditional design and modern component parts. Even if one prefers more modern folding knife technology, the design rocks, and gives the owner a glimpse into the way things used to work. Every knife lover should own one or more of these great knives.

I like the knife and use it for daily task. Cutting rope, yard work and opening packaging. It is also sharpens well and is very affordable.
