Muela Knives - Ciudad Real / Spain
- The Muela companies were started by Eladio Muela León in the mid 1950s, encouraged by the great success of his handcrafted 38-pieces folding knife with the German engineers of the Empetrol refinery, where Eladio was working at the time. These same engineers ordered knives from him to take back to their country and this, together with his business spirit, were the stimulus he needed to set up his first handcrafted folding knives and knives factory, employing seven people. The profit obtained was invested in machinery to make the factory more productive, so that in a short time it was enlarged and located in Argamasilla de Calatrava, in Ciudad Real in the country of Spain. The current installations of Muela knives, in Argamasilla de Calatrava, occupy an area of more than 5,000 m2 and they are equipped with the most modern manufacturing and machining systems, producing more than 350,000 units per year, of which 70 % are exported to more than 50 countries in the five continents. From the moment Muela was founded, their products: luxury, handcrafted, sporting, tactical knives and folding knives for hunting, were exported outside Spain, as well as selling in all parts of our country. The Muela Group is currently one of the reference firms in handcrafted knives for hunting, both in Spain and the rest of the world, and its knives and penknives are highly appreciated for their top quality.
