    I've owned a few of these before, they are built really tough!

    I'd like one of those, too. They have wicked looking fixed blades. The folders are da bomb, too.

    I've wanted a Carrillo for years!
    I finally scored one in the marketplace a few months ago!
    Absolutely my favorite knife.

    Not saying they are not worth every penny but,$1,200 for a folder! Holy crap. That is if you can find one. Is he still in business? He hasn't had anything in stock for a few months now.

    He is without a doubt my favorite designer though. I will need to make 500k to afford some of his knives and not feel like committing sepuko if I lose one.

    Where's the place to look for one? On the website they are always sold out.

    A #7 Tripwire like DeFab's just got posted on bladeforums.com under custom for sale.
    Did not see any Carillo's at the NYCKS! When his present batch gets delivered he will be posting more for sale on his website- I'd keep checking it. Good luck!

    Bernie,
    Just email Dwaine Carrillo (tripwire7@cox.net). He is a really nice guy. At the moment he is finishing up a batch of Tripwire II and Tunnel Ratts. They are approx. $750 and $950 for a damascus blade. + Shipping. If the current batch is sold out (which I think it is), get in line for the next batch (a few months) and you will be all set. Demand is high enough that resale should not be a big problem, though I doubt you will.
    Cheers,
    Willem.
