The Peña Custom Caballero Prime is a front flipper design so meticulously crafted it has the feel of a family heirloom. This one of a kind knife sets itself apart with striking material choices and Enrique Peña’s commitment to precision.
The Caballero Prime is perfectly sized and executed as a classic gentleman's folder. With Enrique’s attention to fit and finish it is also a pleasure to use. This edition features a snag-free front flipper design. In lieu of thumb studs, the tang of the blade has fine machined grooves for traction. The knife has a blasted bolster, clean lines and a classic drop point blade profile flawlessly ground from Damasteel. The modern elements of a ceramic bearing flipper nest the blade perfectly in the bolster lock handle when closed. Deployment is effortless from the front flipper, followed by a smooth strong lock up. Premium materials include a Damasteel blade and 3D pocket clip, titanium bolster lock, custom hardware, and classic micarta slabs. The Peña Custom Caballero Prime is a perfect example of a modern gentleman's knife finished with exceptional detail, promising to be handed down to the next generation.

Enrique Peña has had a lifelong fascination with knives that led him to open his own shop in 2005 in Laredo, Texas. Known for traditional patterns of exceptional fit and finish, he has honed his craft making the classics. He credits his friend Armando Flores for helping him with his first knife. Later it was Bill Ruple and Rusty Preston that helped to refine his skills. Enrique is not only an exceptional knifemaker but a talented leather worker as well. He has recently been branching out into modern designs that retain classic elements and the superlative fit and finish he is known for.
