CONDOR TOOL & KNIFE® traces its proud history back to 1787, the year GEBR WEYESBERG COMPANY was founded in Solingen, Germany.
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, IMACASA® was founded by GEBR WEYESBERG COMPANY in Santa Ana, El Salvador, with a production facility and state of the art German equipment, sending some of their local employees to Solingen for extensive training. IMACASA’s Central American operations were sold in the 1980’s to local investors.
IMACASA® has more than 56 years of experience in the manufacturing and wholesale of hardware tools for the agriculture, construction, lawn and garden, and industrial markets. It has a manufacturing and distribution footprint throughout Central America, exporting to more than fifty countries around the world, and providing a stable source of employment in the region. Today, IMACASA® is one of the largest machete and shovel manufacturers in the world, operating continuous shifts to fill an increasing worldwide demand for its products.
In 2004, IMACASA® developed a first quality line of tools and knives for the North American and European outdoor markets. CONDOR TOOL & KNIFE® was born. Today, CONDOR TOOL & KNIFE® is turning out the finest quality machetes, knives, axes, shovels, swords, spears, and other accessories.
