Fred Perrin is a former French Army Commando, a national Tae Kwon Do champion, a European full-contact stick fighting champion, and one of Europe's most sought-after close-combat and self-defense instructors. He is also an accomplished custom knifemaker and craftsman, specializing in his own uniquely functional designs optimized for military and personal-defense use. Long a favorite among savvy knife users worldwide, the Street Bowie is now back by popular demand. Like the original, the current version boasts a flat-ground VG-10 stainless steel blade. In classic Bowie style, it features a straight clip point that centers the tip on the knife's centerline for maximum control and penetration. An extended section of jimping (textured grooves) on the spine of the blade mates seamlessly with a molded, textured panel on the handle for additional security and control. To reduce its reflective properties, the blade has a durable black ceramic coating.
