Svord Peasant Knife Review

E-mail Print PDF

Justin Telford of NaturalBushcraft reviews the Svord Peasant Knife. Made with New Zealand steel, this simple folding knife is quick and easy to open with just one hand. The size of the blade (3") and the fact that the blade dosen't lock makes it a UK Legal carry. Justin gives his thoughts on how to customise and improve this wonderful little knife.

It's such a great knife if only the sheath matched it. I wish a decent wet form neck or belt sheath was available for it.

I have one too and used it as a back up to my fixed blade. I like the fact the you can use the 'tang' to strike your fire steel with the blade closed, this does however dig into your palm with the blade extended.

Great review guys

hi nice review,ive had one of these for a while now and they are a good tool.
i think i will have to re-finish the handle now as yours looks great.
to anyone wondering about plastic version v wood,the wood version is so much nicer to use and hold,though the plastic one seems to be a more rust resistant steel.

Hi John

I've not seen it for sale with a sheath anywhere except the official Svord website. It is my current choice for an every day carry, I love it! I've tried many knives to supersede my (illegal) Opinel, but nothing came close to this knife in my opinion. Even if I could legally carry an Opinel, I wouldn't go back, I'd still go with the Svord.
