SVO141: Peasant Knife
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 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 Sharpness, Handle Material, Ease of Opening, Blade Material
Cons: None
For the price you can't go wrong, this is a most excellent folder. The best part of any knife should be the blade, and this is where the peasant really shines. These blades are excellent and come very sharp out of the package. Personally I feel the clip point blade is the best but I can't complain about this one. It is an excellent chopper! I've been using it in the kitchen mostly, that handles seem pretty cheap, but being plastic means they won't absorb any water which is excellent for kitchen work. (Just take care pf the blade, it'll rust if neglected.) The scales have a nice texture to them and seem durable. For daily carry, it might be a bit awkward. The handle is a bit big and there is no pocket clip, so you're gonna be leaving this thing loose in your pocket. Don't worry about not having a lock mechanism. I've done lots of heavy carving with this thing and never had any issue with it. Your grip pinching the scales against the tang, as well as the tang against your palm, ensures that the blade is secured firmly. Because of its simplicity, this knife lends itself well to modification. First thing you'll want to do is loosen the screws so that you can easily open and close it with one hand. The screws will need slight adjustment from time to time. One problem I've noticed with all my peasant knives, is that on closing, the stop-pin doesn't stop the blade edge from hitting the bottom Chicago screw. Over time this will dull that part of the blade and could even chip it if you dropped the knife, or closed it too hard! I've seen a few fixes for this on you tube and will be looking into doing mine. This is the only flaw in what is otherwise a superb knife for a very competitive price.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Great knife, low finish.
The handle is adequate, but the blade is great. With two minutes work to smooth out a few rough edges this knife cuts like a dream, just keep it oiled!
