ABOUT THE MAKER
Oeser, Jared
Ever since a young age I have enjoyed and collected knives. After many years of using and collecting knives from various makers I felt it was time to start making them myself. I had a few goals when I started making knives. First, I would never call a knife finished until it looked and performed like a knife I would buy and keep. Second, I would make what I like, not what someone else likes. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. My media of preference has been pencil ever since I was a little tyke. I have studied art and design my entire life and I try to apply the principles I have learned in my knives. I want them to look good, feel good and perform as well as any other knife out there. I stand behind all of my knives. If it does not perform or you just don't like it contact me and I'll take care of you. Making knives is not my full time business. I am a home builder primarily and make knives on the side. I can't really call it a hobby since I charge people money for what I make but it is still an enjoyable pastime for me and I hope it continues to be for many years to come. I first decided to try making knives in July of 2011. I approached my long time friend David Lang and asked him to teach me the ropes. My first experience on a grinder was on his Bader with a 14" wheel. Next I made a knife that would be the basis for my Uinta Bushcraft. It was a full convex blade made from O1. I completed that in August of 2011 and the rest is history. Finally in 2012 I made my first slip joint knife which has always been my end goal. I continue to make both types of knives but my main passion is folders. They are something I use and carry every day and remind of the knives my grandpa used to carry. I try to combine modern materials and techniques with the old traditional style of yesteryear.
Pena, Enrique
My name is Enrique Pena and I'm from Laredo Texas. I have always been fascinated with knives since I can recall, especially slip joint knives in traditional patterns. I got introduced to knife making by a local friend (Armando Flores) which helped me get started and made my first knife which was a single blade slip joint in my own shop in late 2005. Later I visited with Bill Ruple and Rusty Preston and they helped me refine my skills. I have become a full time knife maker and look forward to achieving the level of skill of Bill Ruple and Rusty Preston. I mainly make single and double blade slip joints and occasionally single and double blade lock back knives in traditional patterns and currently like to make big folders such as sodbusters, Case bulldogs, Case folding hunters and so on. I like to use natural handle material such as stag and bone and for blade steel I use ATS-34 and CPM154 and 416 and 410 for liners and bolsters.
