SVO139: 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.

Peasant folding knife
Product is sharp out of the box, just how it was described in the add and is at a good price for this item. I liked the action for this item and type of material it is made of. I plan on dismantling the item and making a custom handle out of bone. good knife design and ancient function (look at old style Roman style knives) same action.

My New Favorite
To start off, I own benchmades, SOGs, spydercos, kershaws and others. But this knife is my favorite of them all, and it comes at a fraction of the price. For my purposes, there is absolutely no downside to this knife. So many knives have all this money going into all other parts of the knife, like handle, appearance and lock type. All the money here goes straight to the functionality of the blade. It came pretty sharp and it take a really good edge. Also, I forced a patina on it with an old (clean) rag and vinegar and it looks awesome. If you are a soldier (or some such dangerous profession) or you need a very fine point on a knife, then you may want to look elsewhere, but if not, then this knife is perfect. The handle is extremely comfortable and blade retention is easy to adjust (once did it with my fingernail.)
