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.
