Description
SPFB15P: FB15P Street Beat
Spyderco
 
Fred Perrin is a Parisian custom knifemaker, a former French Army Commando and a world ranked martial artist. His Street Beat fixed-blade knife reflects all three influences. Handle and blade are roughly equal weight. Where they join is a deep finger choil doubling as a hand guard. This spot marks the location of a balance point, sometimes referred to as a sweet-spot, making the knife noticeably responsive in the hand.

It's constructed from a full-length piece of steel set between Micarta handle scales. The scales are double pinned, expanding three-dimensionally on both ends offering the hand exceptional grip. The VG-10 clip point blade is double flat-ground with crosshatching called jimping on its spine that creates texture therefore tactile resistance against the skin of the hand and keeping the knife firmly in grip. There are two lanyard holes, a traditionally positioned handle lanyard and a small lanyard hole through the blade. Looping a thong or cord through the blade lanyard keeps your hand positioned forward on the handle even when swinging or chopping.

The Street Beat comes in a black Boltaron sheath with a G-Clip fastening system NOT the TekLock.

Cons: None
Perfection
After years of looking for the perfect fixed EDC I have to say, this is it. I have literally dozens of knives and have never found anything better. I've owned the knife for over a year and still love it. I still buy small fixed blades thinking they could possibly be an upgrade but have yet to find anything even close. The sheath doesn't come with a traditional tech-lock but it works well would buy the knife even if it came with no sheath, it's that good. It's also the second sharpest knife i own. The only thing i've ever seen sharper is a cold steel san-mai.

Get one now, don't wait
I watched this blade, and waited to purchase it, for about a year or so. I wish I had gotten it right away. It is light and performs like an extension of your hand. It is wicked sharp and quick. Buy one now before they are gone (I don't know how long Spyderco will offer this knife, but you do not want to miss it). The fit, finish, and quality of this blade is such that I could see it costing $300 and up from a custom knife shop. You will not be disappointed!

Follow up review
After months of carrying this blade, and owning 6 of Fred's handmade models-including his push dagger, I only wish that a 5'' blade version of this would come out from Spyderco. The minimalistic grip and all blade style of Fred Perrin's edged tools just can't be beat-so how about a Street Beat II with a 5'' blade?!
