Enrique’s interest in knives goes way back, he made his first knives when he was 13 years old using old files and a stone wheeled grinder that he put together himself. Enrique took a hiatus from making knives attending to other life events. In 2006 his interest was rekindled when he saw a custom knife that belonged to a friend, Armando Flores. Enrique asked Armando if he would teach him thaw to make such a knife, a single blade slip joint. Later he met Bill Ruple who helped him better his knife making skills and Rusty Preston also helped mentor Enrique. Enrique builds traditional slip joints and some lock backs, single and multi-blades and as of late tactical knives.
