Bryan Baker, master cutler, started his knife-making company at age 18, in 1983. Made redundant by the untimely demise of an engineering firm, Baker decided to turn a hobby making knives into a practical business making a variety of high quality hunting, kitchen and bread knives at a reasonable price. Staring small, Svord has grown its range of knives over the years and sells to many countries worldwide. The combination of quality Swedish cutlery steel and Baker's process for heat treating and tempering produces the best cutting blades.
Today, the Svord brand is chosen around the world by food-lovers, chefs, carvers, campers and hunters alike.
