Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
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!

Svord Peasant
This is a modern day classic and I'm so glad Knifecenter is stocking it! I have a yellow one and it looks like a giant banana. The handles are huge and comically plasticy, looking like a preschool toy. But it's all about the blade. The steel is super strong, super sharp, and looks as though it was born out of some fiery volcano. I wish I had this steel on all my knives. This is perfect for your toolbox.

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.

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!

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Weight
The peasant knife is an interesting blade. The awesome blade quality coupled with the low price and relatively rough quality handle. Also the fact that is a friction folder with a nice bit of tang helps in the use but detracts from the portability.
