- For Reference: Handle (Back Side)
The Svord Peasant knife is simple and efficient, just what you need in a hard-working knife. It features a two-tone finished steel drop point blade to handle all your cutting chores. The blade features a lanyard hole on the tang and is non-locking. The slim, lightweight handle is gold anodized aluminum. The Peasant knife from SVORD Knives is handcrafted in New Zealand.
The blade itself was actually quite nice. The handle on the other hand was quite terrible with a rivet construction than the screws show in the picture/some of the other varieties of the peasant knives do.
Aluminum scales are too thin for me and are riveted together, rather than Chicago screws in the photo. Still, I ended up keeping it for the blade, which arrived sharp. Ended up cutting apart the rivets and replacing the scales with homemade bocote wood scales - making for a fun project for an inexpensive knife.
