SVO160: Black Anodized Aluminum 3" 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, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Handle Material
Exceedingly Poor Handle
Knife delivered came with what looks like just two slabs of plastic with three rivets. I was planing on making a new handle anyway... I would not recommend using it as is. You can't expect the world out of a cheap knife but this handle is a bit, well just too cheap. You may as well consider this a project knife blade with two handle templates attached.

Pros: None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Handle Material
pretty bad, and not like picture
it's a cheap knife, i admit. but at least it would have been a great service to the knife center customers if the true, unappealing pictures of it were presented. The photo here shows what looks like flat screws made of bronze or copper or at least colored like that. In reality there are no screws at all. Instead, there are to larger and one smaller hollow and thin nickel rivets. smooth on the front side and hollow on the back side, and very poorly attached. Both aluminum sides are not held apart in any way in the back (no standoff) and they slide toward each other all the time; however, when the tang is inserted upon opening the knife, they can slide no longer and the handle becomes stable (it rattles otherwise). Blade is very sharp but poorly ground. Why don't I throw it out? It has a certain charm to it as some ugly things do, and how many knives do I have that are made in New Zealand? None besides this one. One last thought: may be plastic or wooden handles will look better... But I am not going to spend my money testing this.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Feel
Blade is stamped from sheet.. Time will tell how well it holds an edge. The picture shows what looks like brass screws. VERY Disappointed that knife came with cheap hollow steel rivets and not having a spacer to stand the scales apart at non-hinge end. Scales rattle. I like the concept of the knife and will most likely just use the parts as a pattern to make better quality copies
