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.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Lock Type, Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Pocket Clip, None
Better than expected.
I went in thinking it would be another junk folder for the price but it handles more like a decent fixed blade. It is a little rough cutwith the wood handle but it isn't uncomfortable at all. Even with a factory edge I could shave (though with some effort) right out of the box. Being a friction folder it did take some minor adjustment with the screws to get it where I wanted it. Definitely good enough for me to look at their other knives.

Peasants... Revolt!
I bought a couple of wooden handles and a purple aluminium one as toss in garden and work knives. I also enjoy getting experience with different opening mechanisms. They certainly are "rustic" but I would not to trust this to any substantial task. There are much better "rustics" and the aluminium one is worse out of the box with less potential improvements.

What is happening in New Zealand?!
In the last few years, New Zealand has instituted a rather brutal business tax. It seems the knives of Svord are beginning to reflect this pretty blatantly. The blade of the Peasant Knife I bought a month ago is exactly one-half as thick as the one I bought three years ago. I used to say that I could bank my life on these Peasant Knives. But the new ones simply are just too thin. These folding knives are made of 15n20, a pretty inexpensive steel that is easy to heat treat. He only uses L-6 in his top-of-the-line models. So if Svord can't afford the quality upkeep on some of the cheapest materials available to knife makers, then I am going to be forced to look elsewhere for the same marriage of quality and simplicity, namely Mora. And this makes no sense to me, because Sweden's taxes are by far more demanding, but Mora is still putting out the quality. This is such a shame.
