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: Overall Quality, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Lock Type, None
Better than a mall knife
Came with a pretty scary toothy edge, hurts a lot more than a refined edge if it cuts you, hah. The lack of a locking mechanism bugs me out more than i thought it would, i have to tape it down when sharpening or even stropping the knife to be safe. overall decent quality for the price, its a good beater or knife to just be rough with. the carbon steel is pretty nice, but also fairly reactive. it started getting surface rust from just being on the counter for a few days. you definitely need to put some oil on it if youre going to let it sit for a while. that said, it was summer when i got this, so it was more humid than usual. i would like to see a fixed blade version of this, i would buy it in an instant. even so, its still worth the money if youre interested and its still a higher quality build than a cheap mall/ gas station knife that doesnt even come sharp from the factory and has a blade that isnt properly heat treated.

I'm hooked
I own some much more expensive Benchmade's, Spyderco's etc.. but I have been EDC'ing this 13 dollar gem since I got it. There is something about the simplicity of it that is really fantastic, and the while it didn't arrive too sharp, the carbon steel blade did not take too long to sharpen to hair-whittling. The handle material is a little sloppy, but it is a 13 dollar knife. Some nice micarta handles, and a good sheath, and it would be a near perfect non-locking blade at 2x the price. Check out the dimensions carefully, though, it's not small, the handle is large (especially with the tang), and it doesn't fit in the backpocket next to the wallet as well as a stockman or trapper slipjoint would, overall, awesome blade, I'll be buying a sheath and another color very soon.
