Svord Peasant Knife

Svord  Peasant Knife Black

Svord Peasant Knife

Description

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.

Great blade, rubbish constructionReview by JB London
Rating
I bought one of these with a metal handle a few years ago and whilst you won't get a better blade for the money, the metal handle was rubbish because unlike the plastic and wooden handles I see here. held together with Chicago screws,, the metal handle was riveted and was so tight it needed both hand and a fair bit of force to open, which rather defeats the purpose when you want a one handed blade that's great for gardening. So the fact that I had to drill out the rivets and reconstruct it totally put me off the company. I know that you get construction flaws in almost every batch of anything, but you expect them to manifest after a bit of use not to leave the factory unfit for use. Their quality controller must have been really disgruntled to let the knife I got onto the market.

Bottom line: exceptional piece of steel that takes and keeps an edge beautifully, and now I've made it into a decent knife I love it, but really unimpressed with the company. I simply can't imagine Cold Steel or Schrade, Spyderco, CRKT, or any of the half dozen other brands I've bought from Heinnie EVER allowing a single item of their inventory to leave the factory in an unusable condition. An unacceptable oversight for any company that wants to be taken seriously in a market where many of us are at least semi-specialist in our knowledge of both blades and knife construction.

Utterly flawless service from Heinnie though - one of the single best companies in the world without question. (Posted on 10/02/2017)
Simple and practicalReview by NOZ1
Rating
The great thing about these is their simplicity. It's just two bits of plastic or wood, a couple of bolts and a blade. Very little to go wrong and effectively locks through friction to the point where you're in no danger of it shutting on your fingers. This makes them strong. I was caught in a mountain Bothy last week with just this knife and the metal part of an old shovel as tools and some logs for a fire. I managed to split the logs bashing the knife with the spade-head. It took a while but worked and the knife is unharmed. Most fancier knives would be ruined. So I consider it a workhorse of a knife. You ain't gonna break it and you don't need to worry about it as it already looks rough and ready. (Posted on 23/11/2016)
Excellent bang for buck (or quid)Review by James
Rating
Excellent knife, much larger than expected with a decent heft but lightweight at the same time due to the handle. It was not the sharpest out of the box, but it is good quality steel for the price and takes an excellent edge once honed.
Definitely recommend to anyone who wants a good work knife or something they don't have to worry about. It's no nonsense and thats why it's great. (Posted on 09/08/2016)
What a knife! At this price?!Review by Cannon-16
Rating
What a great knife! More substantial than you imagine, its capable of some proper use. It is such a practical tool, easy to sharpen, clean and handle, even with gloves or cold hands. My whole family own them and for the money, there is no finer cutting tool. These would be a bargain at £40! Bare in mind these are New Zealand made, all in house at Svord - the archetypical blokes in a shed setup, not some mass produces Chinese effort. (Posted on 15/11/2015)

I ordered this knife Friday at 4pm it was here Saturday at 1045am well pleased with HH fast as f@?k amazing delivery. Well for the knife, it's popping hair on my arm so I say its sharp going to take it apart and make it look all cool with the carbon fiber I have, grind lines are not perfect but it's a cheap knife we can live with that and it's getting a pimp job on it anyway so in all I am happy as i always am with HH thank you guys (Posted on 27/09/2014)
Nice knife, Good valueReview by cypher

First off once again HH delivery speed is amazing.

Little bit stiff to open from new but use it a little belore adjusting the tension as after a day or so if was just fine, almost as if it needed a little time to bed in.

Have always liked the forged look that this blade comes with.

Did need a couple of swipes over a ceramic stone just to get it really sharp.

Like it enough that I'm likely to buy the wooden handled one sometime as well. (Posted on 29/08/2014)
Wow, shave sharp!Review by john

Wow, this was not what I expected I thought little pocket knife but it is the size of a Bushcraft fixed blade knife when opened. on checking the blade if found unlike a lot of other people that mine to be a scary sharp out of the box I could have shaved with it, if they have now upgraded the edge finish then this knife is now amazing!

2nd Peasant - but lower qualityReview by Gary
Rating
This is the third peasent knife I have owned and one of many I have seen and handled and I have to say the quality seems much lower than in the past. The finish of the blade was rough, the tip chipped and the eye on the arm still had a lot of rough metal around it ............. lastly and most disappointing was the edge which was spotted with rust and duller than ed miliband ------ however as a plus, once the edge was re-sharpened and cleaned up the overall knife is/was as good as any I had owned/seen before.

Hair popping sharp out of the box and next to no play between blade and handle, what more could you ask for at this price? (Posted on 18/03/2014)
Review by Joshua

Awesome knife for the price. Due to its design it can withstand some pretty hefty tasks, and is easy to strip, clean and maintain.

The pressure of the handle to the tang or blade to hold open or closed is easily adjustable by the rear screw, and the tightness of the pivot is adjustable also. Perfect for getting it just how you want it.

Very easy to use and deployable with one hand, you can use it in much the same holds as a cut-throat razor, due to its similar tang/handle configuration. (Posted on 07/04/2013)

This thing is very impressive. After a few minutes on the strop, the knife is extremely sharp and the design is so, so simple and yet effective. (Posted on 19/08/2011)
Cheap, useful, a bit too rough...Review by Andrea
Rating
The Peasant comes with this almost unique feature, the protruding tang, which is a reliable locking mechanism, without being a "locking" mechanism.

I had to polish the blade and sand a bit the handles to make it look just decent. The sharpening was awful, but Saint Lansky took care of it.

Anyway, it wasn't advertised as a collectors gem, so I can't complain. (Posted on 15/07/2011)
Good Knife. Excellent serviceReview by Max

This knife may be at the cheaper end of the scale but there is nothing cheap about the quality. Just the job as an everyday carry. Good edge retention. Hennie always get the goods to you when they say they will. (Posted on 15/03/2011)

Looks cheap, feels cheap, it is cheap, and it will outperform or equal any similar blade of any other knife maker regardless of price, if you use knives alot or are even remotely interested in them, you cant go wrong with this. Simple. Recommend visiting the Svord website as its funny and informative as well. (Posted on 22/10/2010)
Good tool!Review by Charles
Rating
I am enjoying using this knife. It reminds me of past times, before we (I!) became over-conscious of brand names, marketing and trademarks.
The knife is light in weight, holds a keen edge and is robust enough for daily use.
At the price, this one is hard to beat.
With the colour choices available, it's also pretty hard to lose! (Posted on 11/10/2010)
Good value KnifeReview by Philip
Rating
This knife is not a fancy collectors knife, but at this price I may collect all the colours. The blades finish could be better but again at this price who cares. It would make a good little bushcraft knife and I hope svord make a version with a slightly shorter uk legal blade.Easily deserves 5 stars for value. I love this knife! (Posted on 01/04/2010)
