Description

Description

This Sprint Run PPT model has been outfitted with solid carbon fiber handle scales and a CPM-S90V blade in a satin finish.

The Perrin PPT folder is named in honor of its three designers; Fred Perrin, Philippe Perotti and Sacha Thiel. This knife has a shape and feel that is reminiscent of Perrin designs. Its lock is a crossbreed annexing components of both Michael Walker’s LinerLock® and Chris Reeve’s Reeve Integral Lock. It functions as a frame-lock but a black G-10 scale overlaying the lock makes it appear closer to a LinerLock.

The carbon fiber scales are milled with corrugated creases for skid-free and ergonomic handling. Its full-flat ground CPM-S90V steel blade is a modified-Wharncliffe profile with a finger choil and spine jimping and a tapered spine-swedge. Item includes a deep-carry pocket clip and handle lanyard.

I love my ZT and Benchmade knives. But, this one really hit the spot! Solid deployment and easy to fold. The exposed liner lock is sweet looking and the sculptured scales and jimping on the top of the blade are incredible. I know this one is not tactical! But a little jumping for a reverse hole would be great. The liners are solid, and have a beautiful grey finish. It opens very smoothly and retracting the blade is one hand easy. There is jimping on the pocket click which supplements the handy, short landyard.
Solid knife!

Build quality is on par with pricing. Great fit and finish, perfect centering, solid lockup, ergonomics are perfect, smooth action (after working it in a bit). Scales are awesome full CF.

Only 2 cons about this knife.

- Heavy. Handles are overbuilt and looks like it could be thrown off a 5 story building with only the carbon fiber taking some damage. Will only carry when wearing jeans.

- Pocket clip. I was carrying this earlier and while getting out of my truck it caught on something and the clip totally bent out and there was like a solid 1/2" gap between the clip and the handle scale. I was able to take it off and bend it back but hopefully it doesn't happen again... Clip is weak and sticks out a little too far, no hotspot in hand though.

All in all, great knife. Might end up looking for a custom pocket clip though.
Gorgeous in hand!

Just received it a couple hours ago. Beautiful folder! Great ergonomics for my medium sized hands. Amazing blade steel. Ridiculously sharp OTB.
Nearly a home run

The closest comparison to be made is to the Yojimbo 2. It has similar blade length but the Perrin comes with contured scales and a deep carry clip which I love. It can serve similar purposes but to me looks much more attractive and conventional. It serves as an in between to a Delica and Yojimbo for EDC tasks.
The Good:
The blade is quite thin. That combined with the tall flat grind and S90V steel makes this an amazingly efficient slicer. Jimping is well done and it allows for comfortable handling.
The clip allows the knife to ride well in the pocket but is not reversible.
The carbon fiber scales look beautiful and are well finished.
The lock-up is very solid (it's more of a frame-lock rather than a liner lock).
The not so good:
My only complaints are that the action is rather stiff and that the tip of the pocket clip tends to stick out more than necessary.
In the end, this is a good looking knife with great performance. Very happy to have gotten one before they are gone.
