Spanish knives and Spanish pocket knives

From the beginning, Spanish knives and Spanish pocket knives have enjoyed world fame. The designs vary enormously in both shape and size: bowie knives, knives from the Canaries, kitchen knives, bayonets, machetes, Chilean 'corvo' knives, Chilean 'atacameƱo' knives, 'remate' knives, swiss army knife, boning knives, folding knives, survival knives and limited edition knives.

There is also great variety in the materials used to finish the knives and pocket knives. These include red deer antler & bone, bull horn, goat horn, cow bone and many others. The majority of our blades are composed of 440 stainless steel with our simpler models being composed of 420 stainless steel.

All the natural materials used in finishing the knives must be prepared using techniques that have been handed down over generations. These techniques bring out the best in the materials and, in many cases, take several months to complete.

Some of our knives are standard issue in the Spanish, German, Dutch, Indonesian and Estonian Armies, as well as in the Spanish and French Police forces, and organisations like the UN and UNESCO.
