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 knife

    Posted by Adam Cunningham on 26th Jan 2021

    It's a great knife. The blade is great quality steel and the handle is good quality. The edge when you get it needs a touch up. I think this model is a bit big for me and most people I know. I would recommend the mini peasant over this bit it is good quality non the less

    Excellent alternative to a Mora

    Posted by Richard on 30th Jun 2019

    Ok, first off, if you like in the UK and you want an edc penknife from Svord, buy the mini peasant instead, it's a superb edc and has been mine for 3 years now. However, if you want a larger blade then the original full sized one is a good option but it is too large for our draconian edc laws. I have three of these, all polypropylene handles (don't waste your time with the metal handle, they are riveted not screwed and as a result can't be disassembled for cleaning or to set the tension) they are great camping knives and I prefer them to my Mora for campfire and camp kitchen duty, here's why: 1/ like the mora they are functional and easy to maintain, they are also brightly coloured which means, when laid down next to the fire, they are easy to spot meaning you don't kneel/ tread on them. 2/ the blade shape is better for kitchen tasks especially spreading, something most tool knives are hopeless at 3/ because they fold it means you tend to fold them when not actually using them, whereas the Mora, mid rabbit:fish/sausages on campfire tends to send a lot of time out of its sheath and left or dropped when emergency intervention is required to rescue food from burning etc. So the folding , easy to clean and easy to spot all combined with a blade that is quite frankly superb , make these my go to camp beaters. One of these knives spends its time permanently open in our kitchen knife block, the blade shape and balance make it superb for vegetable preparation, slicing, chopping and its sharp enough and robust enough for butchering and disjointing.

    Fantastic VFM and an absolutely great all round purchase

    Posted by Chaddlehanger on 10th Nov 2018

    Awesome bit of New Zealand funkiness. The mini is a safer/legal UK EDC but this is just such a great knife. You really should get one. If you do you will not be disappointed. If you have yet to learn how to properly sharpen a knife you may have some concerns about blade condition on arrival. It is a bit rough 'out of the box' but the underlying steel is very good indeed. Sort out your ability to sharpen/maintain good steel like this and you will never need another blade. The Svord Peasant really is that good. I already had the mini version, my EDC and very unlikely to be shunted out unless I win a decent lottery prize. If I had to choose one non-locking EDC it should be the Pheasant Mini. The standard Peasant is better in almost every way other than size. Just a little to big for UK daiily carry. Bums. ps even though this is one of my absolute favourites, please do check out the Mora Eldris. I love that little fixed blase beaut just a tiny bit more ... soz Svord Cheers R

    Unique.

    Posted by GK on 18th Aug 2018

    My son gave me a Svord peasant on his return from NZ, I had never handled this type of knife before, thought they were not for me, however, now I have one I can't put it down. It looks as rough as a badgers bum but boy is it sharp.

    The pleasant Peasant...

    Posted by Stevo on 10th Mar 2018

    Bought this out of curiosity. And because of the good reviews. It looks rather utilitarian in basic black. And despite the hand-filling handle, it is not too heavy. As the blade is just over 3 from handle to tip of the blade, it is not for EDC unless you want to shorten the blade a tiny bit; I would prefer not to. So, this one stays at home. The Mini version was purchased some time after trying the full size Peasant. Easier to EDC, you see. Everything about this model is well designed and of a sensible size. The edge was in good condition upon arrival. Light honing and stropping quickly brought it to tip-top sharpness. The adjustable tension is a nice feature; open or closed there is just the right amount of secure grip.The plastic is durable and free from concerns of moisture retention, compared to an as is' Opinel where an unintentional dunking can lead to the wood handle swelling and seizing the blade. Unless you strip and refinish your Opinel inside and out. That really does help matters. I used tung oil, in several thin coats applied and allowed to completely dry over a few evenings. But the Peasant in its plastic livery avoids all of this. And it can be easily operated with one hand. The simple construction means that it can be taken apart for cleaning and maintenance and reassembled in just a few minutes. All in all this is a very good basic friction folder, comfortable and convenient to use. Well recommended. Very quick delivery from HH, too. Cheers!

    Perfect Neck Knife

    Posted by Mike - Rifleman of Rye on 11th Jan 2018

    Greatly pleased with this knife. It was paper cutting sharp out of the packet. I shoot black powder rifles and wild camp with my son. It will cut patches for lead ball on the muzzles of my several rifles, as well as undertaking most camp chores other than chopping branches, which can do with my heavy bladed Condor. Also, the hole in the tang is perfect for a leather neck lanyard, thus no carry problems. The leather lace can also be wound around the knife when open to increase both grip and safety. I am wearing it now as I write. I shall reduce the cutting edge length at the back of the blade by a few millimetres to make it conform to our idiot UK knife law. Richard, the HH Manager, was extremely helpful and kind during this transaction - an exchange - which resulted from the return of another faulty knife, a Friday folder. As always delivery was 'supernatural. I'm getting a bit worried about my addiction to the company's website. I think I will wake-up one morning with HH stencilled on my forehead.

    Great blade, rubbish construction

    Posted by JB London on 2nd Oct 2017

    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.

    Why buy complicated and fiddly when you can have a Svord?

    Posted by Jay on 14th Jun 2017

    Got this knife in my pocket right now as I type. Have carried and used it daily since getting it. One thing I really like: its peasant simplicity. Doesn't require any fine motor skills. No fiddly/delicate/jammble mechanism. Have more or less severe arthritis, and usually use this with my non-dominant hand which is less affected. Can open it by levering the tang against my meaty thigh/backside,/other arm, table, chairback etc. I have lots of other folders that I like:: victorinox swiss champ/mini champ/treker, opinels etc. But they are far less manageable nowadays as you can imagine. Definitely going to get a Mini Peasant, and maybe a Heavy Peasant as well. Great kinves, and great service, from Heinnie(that goes without saying, but I keep saying it anyway:)).

    Simple and practical

    Posted by NOZ1 on 23rd Nov 2016

    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.
