Svord Peasant Mini

The very popular Svord Peasant knife is available here in a smaller, "Mini" form.


It features the same high carbon stainless steel and simple but effective textured plastic handle. The tang raises above pivot when the knife is in the closed position. These knives are extremely popular, and are extremely "rustic" in their construction. It is not unusual for customers to be suprised at their "no nonsense" fit and finish. For an everyday, usable knife, this is wonderful. If you're looking for a work of art, this may not be for you.


The non-locking blade is under three inches and is therefore legal to carry within the UK at the owner's discretion.


It is available in a choice of eight different colours.

    prettydamgood

    I've had the mini for a while now and it's like we're joined at the hip. I filed the opening tab into a screwdriver profile and it is in constant use. Just about to order the big one. Simple, sharp and almost indestructible; it's all I ask.

    HMMMMM

    My gripe is the over all length when retracted. Photos do not show it closed, obviously deliberate. I hope it lives up to the reviews when in daily use.

    Green for a change...

    Posted by Stevo on 6th Oct 2019

    Reviewed a blue handled model below, under Richard's worthy tome. The blue Mini is still going strong and proved its worth a few days ago to quickly shave down a wooden window which had become inoperable due to many years of weathering. So I rate the Peasant Mini very highly.

    A more visible handle seemed like a good idea recently, and for a change, the bright green is ideal. It is like a safety colour, vivid and readily apparent. Great choice for a toolbox.

    I must say the grinds on this one compared to my original blue Mini are very symmetrical and even. There is a slight distal taper to the spine on this neon green model. I surmise that the production team at Svord have really hit their stride, because while my blue one needed a few minutes work to even up the edge, this one needed only a very light strop.

    If you haven't tried a Peasant Mini, you really should. If the job at hand is not so rough that you really need the disposable blade of a Stanley knife, then in my opinion this is every bit as good a choice as an Opinel or a Mora. Only, thanks to the non-locking blade, the Mini is UK friendly. So it's more appropriate for some things. For the above mentioned impromptu window repair, in that unexpected situation, I was glad that the Mini was in my pocket. Sanding would have taken forever.

    This design has really won me over from the traditional type of slipjoint folding pocket knife. Nice and light in one's pocket, durable, well made, and very reasonably priced. And the steel seems, to me, to be a very good balance between toughness and the ability to take and hold a keen edge.

    Much used and much appreciated, the Svord Peasant Mini is well recommended!

    Thank you, HH, for making this excellent model available. Nice one!

    Coming back for more.

    My original review of the Peasant Mini was about 5 years ago. Since then, this basic little knife has been out with me countless times to the garden, workshop, hunting and in a jeans pocket when out shopping, where I normally carry a SAK.

    I have to say that it has been a joy to use/abuse. It has dealt with every cutting task I've put it to work on. I've cleaned the underside of the lawnmower with it, carved up masses of cardboard, shaped dowels, cleaned up rough wooden joints, paunched & skinned rabbits, cut green stakes for a hide and much more besides.
    When it needs resharpening, the steel quality allows me to return it to a close-to-lethal edge with little effort and then it's ready for more work. The original sins of its uneven grind are now part of its charm and I must honestly say, this knife has more usability and character than many other knives I own. It's simple, sturdy and does what a good knife should.

    Almost perfect

    Posted by Doddy on 20th Jul 2019

    I'm looking for the perfect peasant knife. Something simple, yet interesting.

    I was amazed at the charm this knife has. Such a.liveky knife to use and fiddle with! Got the blade unbelievably sharp, it splits hairs. My arms are bald for god's sake.

    I got the blue one, the plastic handle is so grippy and comfortable. The simplicity of the knife is so impressive, yet the usability is so good! The tang makes removal from pocket so easy, and once opened out, blade feels so secure.

    For the money, hand made in new Zealand is even more impressive. Going to get more, the wooden one is ok, but double the money, yet looks like an antique.

    A must have work knife

    Posted by Robert on 7th May 2019

    A great work knife with no messing about. The knife fits neatly in your pocket, the grind is not to sharp that the edge will damage easily. When such a useful knife is this cheap you just have to buy one

    Brilliant little knife for the price

    Posted by Seano on 4th Feb 2019

    Excellent little knife. Came almost blunt, but amazingly easy to put a paper slicing edge on it, an edge which it holds despite the beating I give it. Comfortable in the hand, with a very secure blade, despite not locking. Friction opening can be easily adjusted, and the whole knife can be taken apart with almost no effort to be cleaned/re-handled. I regularly use mine for bushcraft, and whittling, and recently used it to butcher a pheasant, it has excelled with every task I've given it. It's hard to believe this knife is so cheap. It won't win any beauty contests, but for a functional knife I wouldn't want anything else. One of the most important things about the price, is that it means I'm not "scared" to use it, like you might be with a £50 knife. Would recomend to anybody.

    poor finish but awsome knife

    Posted by Daniel on 17th Oct 2018

    The fit and finish on the one i got wasn't perfect and the grind lines needed cleaning up a little as they were very uneven but after fixing that i went about moding it to my mothers liking by adding some gimping on the tang and creating a faux hamone with petroleum jelly and acid as well as etching and finished by sharpening it to hair popping sharp. Easy to disassemble and make it your own special unique knife for a nice price, will pick anotherone up next order as this one now resides in my moms handbag.

    When imperfect is this good......buy ,

    Posted by Chaddlehanger on 10th Aug 2018

    Just buy one and sort everything else out afterwards. You will not regret it.

    Style and finish are not the drivers with this one. It is all about simplicity, ease of daily use and super good quality blade steel.

    Looks and feels a bit rough out of the box, but this conceals a FANTASTIC bit of kit.
