I love Peter Carey's work. I got on his list 2 years ago. I had asked him to make me a knife that I dreamed up in my head. It is a Timascus scales,thumb stud, and clip, with double CF bolsters. Blade: .125" CPM 154, 3" long. This knife is amazing!! I love the low rider clip on the bad boy too. This is a fantastic knife I will let the pix do the talking!! Thanks for looking!

Nice folder Suz ! I don't presently own any of Peter's work but have handled a couple of his folders in the past,
and they were really smooth and well made . I think you and I are a minority here with our many stainless blade tactical style folders -

I have some good things to say here. I love this knife. This is my favorite of your knives that I can remember, Suzanne and also this is my favorite Carey knife to date. I don't just say these things lightly, but I LOVE this particular knife. My only thing might be a different material other then CF but i love the colors in the middle, the round edges, and the clip. GREAT knife. Could turn me back into a tactical guy.

Wow Suz, that's a beauty.
With that thin CPM 154 blade I'll bet that this one is a real "slicer."
It's always a lot of fun to work with a maker to add your own personal
touch to a knife. I think that you and Pete did a great job on this one.
Aren't "custom's" a lot of fun?

I'm really not a "tactical guy" at all but this knife looks real balanced with some great materials thrown in. Congrats Suz with this one.

This knife looks really cool! Although I'm usually not a big fan of timascus, this is one of those knives that bucks my usual "like it, don't like it" norm.
The carbon fiber compliments the colors and the clip & opening stud are great finishing touches (I seem to recall seeing other pics where these details really popped). The other thing that catches my eye is the profile of this knife both when it's open and closed, all swoopy and curvy. I especially like how it presents when it's closed.
Congrats Suzanne! This one is a real winner.
