The Knifecenter has known Fred Perrin since the mid 1990’s. In fact, we put up the first web site for him! Today, Fred has his own knife company and we are thrilled to be able to sell these great items. Fred Perrin always has the most innovative designs and great materials. Fred was originally inspired by the Schrade Sharpfinger model as a useful tool. He has kept his innovative edge (pun intended) through the years and the pocket knives and combat knives that he currently produces are really great. They are all made in France
Here is some information about Fred Perrin
Fred Perrin always does his own heat treatment and tempering. As far as his background in the martial arts, Fred has spent two years in the French Army Commandos and worked as a bodyguard. He was a national Tae Kwon Do champion and a European full contact stick-fighting champion. He has trained in Kali, and God knows what else. His weapon of choice is the butterfly knife, in which he excels. Aside from being France’s most famous and controversial knife maker and tactical writer, Fred runs a school where he teaches a very unique blend of knife, stick, and empty hand techniques. He is often contracted by France’s elite police units for seminars and provides some agencies with custom-made weapons for ballistic testing.
