El Casco was founded 1920 in the Basque Country of Northern Spain as a manufacturer of revolvers. During the Great Depression the owners were driven to diversify into additional products, and in 1934 they began the production of the distinctive stapler M-5 which is shown alongside. Today, El Casco provides the finest range of desk accessories in the world, while maintaining the Hallmark of their origin by training their own apprentices, and teaching the traditional manufacturing skills. These processes are both painstaking and manual, all precison components are individually numbered and assembled by hand. Genuine product from El Casco.
