This Sprint Run is a rendition of a discontinued design, the Perrin PPT. This knife features a black Titanium CarboNitride (TiCN) coating on both the blade and hardware, with the rest of the original model being left intact.
It's not uncommon these days for manufacturers to team up with a custom maker, but rarely do they team up with three. Fred Perrin, Philippe Perotti and Sacha Thiel have collaborated to come up with this great ergonomic design. A practical wharncliffe shaped blade made from CPM-S30V, textured G10 scales and hybrid frame lock make up this knife. The blade has jimping along the spine for added grip, and a reversible deep carry clip for a low profile in the pocket. Want a knife with a comfortable handle and plenty of texture? This may be the knife for you.
About Fred Perrin: We had the priveledge of setting up across from Fred at the Blade show for a few years, and were always intrigued by the diverse array of knives and even jewelry he crafts. A former French Army Commando and world-vetted Tae Kwon Do and stick fighting champion, Fred is extremely well versed in self defense. He now works as a writer, martial arts instructor and professional knifemaker.
About Sprint Runs: Each year Spyderco releases a limited number of Sprint run knives, with a variation on an established model. These knives are produced in limited quantities (usually 600 or 1200 pieces) and are highly sought after by collectors. This is a great way for users to purchase an out of production favorite, or a regular line item with a new twist. We recommend acting fast on these knives, as some models sell out fast!
