The Peasant knives are great working knives. I bought one just out of curiosity a couple of years ago, but wondered what it was good for. I quickly found out. These knives are great to carry in the chest pocket or the ruler pocket of bibs. I was doing some work around the house and kept needing a knife. It was hard to use a pocket knife or utility knife because I was wearing heavy work gloves and I got aggravated by having to take them off frequently to open a knife. The extended tang on this knife makes opening it a snap. Plus, the tang works great to prevent it from closing accidentally when you’re using it for something a knife shouldn’t be used for (come on, we all do it). I gave one to a good friend and it’s been his go-to knife for construction and remodeling. What’s really amazing it how well these blades hold an edge and how easy they are to re-sharpen. Great for keeping stashed away in the truck as well.
