I have ordered my Persian out of curiosity to see if the blade shape had any value for me. However, this knife was not a keeper. The grip was simply too short for my taste and the fit of the knife in the thin kydex sheath a bit too tight, as I really had to rock it back and forth to get it out. The belt clip can be remounted for left handed use. The workmanship of the (relatively thick and heavy) Persian is, however, absolutely first rate. The fitting of the G10 scales to the “frame” is a dream. You cannot do better on a custom knife ! The back edge is not sharp, this hideout blade probably works best in a reverse grip.
