SVOPKMORG: Peasant Knife Mini 2.5"
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 possesion - 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.

All-Around Performer
I also own the full-sized Peasant knife. The Mini is more pocket friendly. I EDC this knife, and I love it! There are two great features about this knife: the blade, and the simple design. The blade is made of L6 tool steel (carbon steel), and it takes a fine edge, is easy to sharpen on basic sharpeners, and has good retention. I love how it takes on a patina as I use it on fruit and vegetables. The 1.5mm blade stock is thin enough for the Mini to be an efficient slicer. It goes through cardboard as well as apples. I've used it several times to prepare dinner, and it worked well. Don't worry about rust; clean and dry the blade after use and it will be fine. This friction folder is very simple. There are 2 Chicago screws, 2 handle scales, a stop pin, and the blade. Simplicity = strength. You'd have to tear the stop pin out of the handle scales for this knife to fail. There is no blade centering issue, no weak springs, no ball bearings to lose. It's a snap to tighten the screws if things get loose. This knife can be opened and closed with one hand, easily. If you grip the knife properly, it cannot accidentally close on you, because you are holding the tang down. Also, don't worry about accidental opening in your pocket. There is strong retention when you tighten the rear screw. Incidentally, the exposed tang can be used as a mini pry bar, or to open bottle tops using the lever technique. From the factory, the blade touches the rear screw when you close it, but the brass does not really dull the blade. I fixed this by installing a larger stop pin using 5/32" brass rod from the hardware store. This knife is worth the extra effort. For me, it's as close to a perfect EDC knife as I've come across.

Pros: None
Cons: None
Plain and simple
This is not some heavy bladed tacti-cool knife. It is simple and elegant in its design and its slim blade excels at mundane everyday tasks like cutting open boxes, slicing salami, and peeling apples. It is built simply enough that it could be taken apart to clean (I have not tried this). Although it has been done online, this is not the do it all knife that you should baton with. There are bigger fixed blades and hatchets if you need to split wood in the field. Every expert on the internet has their pet view on blade materials and designs. All I will say is you will need to take care of this and any other knife. It will need cleaning and oiling. It will need sharpening. Some will say that this knife could have been finished better. I like its rough look. It adds to this knife's charm.
