Nice to see you here, bud.
Hilton, I have fallen in love with the La Griffe I picked up (by Fred Perrin).
What a great little neck knife. You can see them in the article regarding Perrin in the current Knives Illustrated.
I have one that is a little longer than the shape shown (a semi tanto is what I'd call it) and the grip is phenomenal. This little gem is sharp and tough.
Also, it is hardly noticeable due to its flat shape and skeletonized handle.
The hole for the forefinger makes the grip very secure.
Have you seen or tried one? I think you'd like it.
Not for every occasion, but lends itself well to South Florida climes.
(I wrote a short review on the two knife/blade forums).
