I own several knives for hunting and general use. This is a very interesting design. Before it arrived I thought it was just a novelty, and didn't expect much. However, it is how pocket knives were designed several hundred years ago and I think it is quite a simple design yet effective. Sometimes less is more. The steel on the Svord is excellent quality. It arrived razor sharp. This is a great all-around use knife. Hunting, camping, the car, the boat, the garage. It feels great in the hand, just the right size. The blade won't flop out when closed as it is held in place by the pressure of each side of the handle pinching the blade to keep it enclosed. The brass screws allow you to tighten or loosen the amount of "pinch pressure" to your liking. What a great knife for the money. Just buy one, you won't be disappointed!

This knife certainly isn't bad for the price, but it had a few flaws. First off, the photo shows a knife with a pin set just behind the first screw. This pin was not present on the knife I ordered. This meant there was nothing stopping the blade from going too far backwards except the tension on the screws. The problem is, if you set them tight enough to stop the blade from going backwards, it's very difficult to open. I don't know why they stopped putting this pin in, or if it's only my knife that it happens to be missing from.

In fact, there was a pilot hole drilled on the inside of the knife for the pin, but it wasn't drilled all the way through. I cut my own pin for it from a length of brass rod, drilled out the pilot holes a bit so it would fit, and installed it. That problem is now solved.

Secondly, the blade is ground very unevenly, which affects how the knife cuts, and the convex portion of the grind is very abrupt, which makes the knife difficult to sharpen, and causes it to tend to lose its edge more quickly than it really should. I solved this issue by disassembling the knife and putting a better grind on it with my belt sander. It now keeps an edge far longer, and I can get it sharper than I could before. I also evened up the grind bevel, so it cuts more effectively.

The third issue is purely aesthetic. The handles of the knife are very roughly shaped, and look to be simply dipped in polyurethane, which drips and bubbles around the edges. The finish is uneven and ugly. The two handle halves didn't match up very well, either. I sanded off the finish, and sanded all the rough edges smooth with the two halves screwed together, so in the end, everything was matching and flush.

This is a nice little (well, actually not so little, it's fairly large really) knife. Comes with a sharp carbon steel edge from the start, I personally like the tang design (although I can certainly see why some people wouldn't), fits nicely in my hand, and hasn't rusted. It does have a fair patina on it from cutting potatoes and apples and the like, but that just adds to the character of the blade. I certainly would recommend it to anyone that wants a strong, unique and sharp knife.

Update: Been carrying this for quite a while now, still a great knife. I've heard people complain that it's awkward to open, but try carrying it spine forward, tang up.
Reach into your pocket and grasp with the end of the tang in the middle of your hand.
Pull from your pocket and swing out the handle.

Opens really quick that way and is ready to use. Don't try to open it like a knife with a thumbstud...

I am attracted to "old school" things, so I just had to take the plunge and see what the Svord Peasant knife was all about. I even purchased the sheath. Would I buy a second such knife? Considering the build quality and simplicity of the design, I will probably never have to.

Positives:

It is a very nice carbon steel blade that I've sharpened at 20 degrees and stropped to a great working edge. A little oil on the blade regularly to protect the carbon steel from the elements (here in SWFL, near the Gulf Coast, the elements can take a toll on neglected knives of any type), and it is going to last a long time.

Adjusting the tension on this knife is ridiculously easy. It is a friction folder that only requires turning the two screws with a flat-head screwdriver for the desired results. Should you want to change the setup? Just grab a screwdriver again.

The stout, simple wooden handles are crude, but probably meant to be that way. I've applied boiled linseed oil and will do so again on a not infrequent basis to help protect the grips, which feel nice in the hand.

Simple, solid construction. There are few parts, and the parts are generally made very well.

Cons:

If you are looking for a tacti-cool folder, this isn't it. This is a version of an agricultural worker's basic tool from about the time of the Renaissance. It works well at cutting open bags, twine, twigs, and doing a variety of basic things. Think of what peasants typically did with working knives back in the day, and you have a wide range of appropriate uses for this nice instrument.

It is not locking. For what it was intended to do, that wasn't really needed.
