I recently purchased a Perrin. The blade is wonderful, cuts like a dream. I've never seen a PE blade slide through cardboard like this one.
My one complaint is the sheath. It holds the blade vertical, horizontal, inverted, and at a 45 degree angle. Since I wear it on my right hip, I'd like to carry it slightly less than vertical. Vertical sticks it hard against my side and I have trouble drawing it. I'd like to put it at a 66 degree angle (the tek-lok has holes for that) but the sheath isn't drilled for it. I've resorted to carrying it blade-forward and pommel pushed downward a bit, approximating a 80 degree angle. When I draw with my right hand, it's tip-down and edge-out.
I don't really think the sheath should be carried inverted, it's too loose.
Perhaps I'm being picky about the positions on the tek-lok. Overlooking that, the sheath rattles something fierce. It clicks every time I take a step. If I do keep the blade straight vertical, it presses against the side of my torso, and that keeps it fairly tight inside the sheath, lessening the rattle.
Again, I love the blade. It fits great in my hand and cuts wonderfully. I'm just not thrilled with the sheath. Consider getting one from a custom sheath maker.
