Enrique Peña Custom Barlow Liner-Lock Front Flipper Folding Knife
Enrique Peña has been making knives since 2006, He began his career strictly making traditional style folders. He was another one of Bill Ruple's students. Now he makes both traditional knife patterns and tactical knives, and has melded both styles of knives into some outstanding traditional patterns with liner-locks and flippers. His knives have gained a lot of traction among collectors, and have become highly desirable to own. His precise fit, finish, selection of materials, appearance and design, are what defines a custom handmade knife. Enrique is extremely skilled at his craft, and the action, ergonomics, fit and finish of his work are absolutely top shelf.
The liner-lock front flipper Barlow is one of Enrique's most desirable models. The clip point blade is CPM 154 stainless steel, with a hand rubbed satin finish and notched thumb rest. It also features linen paper Micarta scales, black canvas Micarta bolster, titanium liners, and red G10 spacers. The blade runs on ceramic bearings over stainless steel washers, and flips smooth, fast, and with authority. The backspacer is brown canvas Micarta. The blade has excellent detent, rock solid lock-up, perfect blade centering, and an early lock-up with no lock-stick. This knife is brand new, direct from Enrique at the 2021 New York Custom Knife Show. Comes in a PENA padded, zippered storage case.
