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.

Pros: Blade Material, Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard
I really like this knife. it takes an edge and holds it. It does all the things I want it to, feather sticking, small limbing jobs. And is controllable as a carver, whittling. And the gimping is great with a fire rod as well as aggressive but comfortable for thumb pressure, cutting control. I have never owned a spyderco VG10 steel knife before and did not know what to expect. I had heard good things about this steel on the forms. I am very happy with it and would buy another. I wanted a good small knife for finer work and control and the street beat is the one. Thanks knlife center for such prompt quality service. Rob D.

More beautiful than functional--Spyderco Perrin Street Beat
This knife is a good blade for someone with smaller hands, but the handle is too small for my medium/large hands. It's probably too heavy for most people to carry around the neck, but it's okay as a belt knife, I suppose. I am not really sure what the purpose of this blade is, but I don't think it's an ideal EDC by any means. It's less the weight as it is the overall length. It does not flip well in the hand either. It's made from the same steel (VG-10) as my kitchen knives, but I don't know what that means other than it's not likely to rust too easily. It's nice and shiny.The sheath is really nice and secure, but the G-Lock is junk, I would buy a Tek-Lock instead.The handle is thick and is kind of slippery; the weight distribution strongly favors the handle I would call KnifeCenter and ask for suggestions on what knives they might recommend in lieu of this one.

quality issues
Nice design for an easy to carry everyday, fixed blade. Unfortunately let down by poor quality blade grinding. Mine had the flat grind blade noticeably offset from the centreline and slight recurve to the edge which shouldn't have been there! Due to living in the UK and the hassle involved I haven't sent it back, but did email Spyderco who didn't seem that bothered. No problems with knifecenter.com though.
