Authors Comments:Fred Perrin is an ex-special forces France knife designer and he has made a scary little knife here. It is full flat ground, so needs special attention when mounting. I use chamois to fill the voids.

Peter Altenbach Chefs Knife 10" 3mm X45CrMoV15 ? 20 2k Chosera Bottom E Chopping and Slicing
 
Authors Comments:I've had this knife for over 24 years and have used it regularly. The steel isn't spectacular and really doesn't hold up well below 20 degrees. I like the shoulders polished and the edge just a little toothy. -Clay Allison
