The knives are the pieces that we are going to discover, from the history of one of the places of Spain that single to name it evokes it to the utensil, Albacete. The short manufacture of knives and other cutting weapons come from the moors inhabitants of that zone manchega, since they were very capable artisan in forged and the work of the knives and knives.
The classic knife appeared in Spain at the end of century XVI, of form so generalized and practical that soon it extended by all our geography. Becoming weapon necessary to guarantee the security before a possible surprise attack, since the poverty of the moment did not allow the rating of rural police, nor of public lighting system that guaranteed the security citizen.
At those certain moments arms, like the swords and sabers, had reserved their use for the noble class and the military service, whereas the citizen of a foot, also needed to count on an equal instrument of effective, then the knife arose. It was a weapon that in spite of its so large minor had the advantage to duplicate it when opening itself, simultaneously that weighed less, that did more bearable and easy to hide, and sharpened well with acute end, its effectiveness had therefore the assured knife.
The striker pin is known that or marks to engravings in the leaf of the knives and knives or any other cutting weapon like sabers and swords, is not more than the company/signature of its author, that character identifier had its importance at certain moments of history. Nevertheless, as much in Albacete as in most of Spain, during centuries XVII and XVIII Centuries of Gold of the knives and knives of Albacete, the mark or striker pin of the leaves did not practice frequently (except in the scissors of crafts for tablecloth). Fact that helps the study of the well-known units very little.
It had a little while in the history of the cutlery of Albacete in which it fell so under this splendid art that was on the verge of disappearing. This disappearance of the knives and knives was not happening only in Albacete but that happened by all Spain, and some of their causes were; the exhaustion of steel of Mondragón, the disappearance of the unions of cutlers, the competition of the foreign cutlery, and the norms of the monarchs who ended the manufacture, sale, use and possession of daggers, knives, daggers, knives, etc.
