New SVORD Folding Pocketknife Models
Svord Knives make great products. They have their Peasant Knives which we have been offering for some time and people love them. Svord Knives has now released this Peasant Knife with aluminum handles. They’re really great folders with very thin profiles. The handle grips the base of the blade to sort of lock it open with a “friction lock” system. They are very reasonably priced and well made. These are made in New Zealand. The carbon steel that they use will take a razor edge.

Here is some more info from SVORD Knives:
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 Knives 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.
