I saw ragweed forge had these cool friction folders by Svord, for a good price.
Checking out the Svord website svord.com (http://www.svord.com/SvordMainFrameset.htm) And they have so many things I would like to get. The 12" machete in economy sporting. And some of the skinners for the kitchen.
There is also a video on the sie of someone hammering a peasant knife through a nail... and the knife was fine.
Coming up short on a place to get them in the US though.

I don't think there's anywhere to get them in the US.
We had a group buy on them a couple of years back here at THR/NFW when Matthew Vanitas was kind enough to handle it for everyone.

Svord's website says Blue Ridge Knives is their US contact

Blue Ridge is a wholesaler, but they can tell you who retails them.

I just picked up a new Svord Peasant Knife on EBay. Didn't see any of the other Svord knives there, though.

I've seen the Peasants at edcdepot.com (where I bought mine), and at Ragweed Forge, at this page: http://www.ragweedforge.com/HistoricalKnifeCatalog.html (http://www.ragweedforge.com /HistoricalKnifeCatalog.html).
I like the Peasant. It went with me to Rome and to Mexico last year (stayed in room, didn't carry it on the streets). I like it a lot and have found it to be a lot of knife for the money. It's thin and slices almost as well as an Opinel. One thing I love about it is how easy the knife is to detail strip for cleaning and lubrication.
