The quality of the swords, military knives, agricultural tools and household cutlery they manufactured made Solingen the cutlery capital of the world. Over the generations, the world’s largest manufacturer of swords and knives found it necessary to expand operations to other countries to better serve its customers.
In 1964, the company formed with a new plant in Santa Ana, El Salvador, filling it with state of the art German equipment and sending some of their local employees to Solingen for extensive training. Today, the factory is turning out the finest quality machetes, knives, axes, shovels and other hand tools.
It's Central American operations were sold in the 1980’s to local investors. Today, it is one of the largest machete and shovel manufacturers in the world. In 2004, they developed a first quality line of tools and knives for the North American and European outdoor markets and that is when CONDOR® TOOL & KNIFE was born.
