Albacete's knives

Jump to last reply

I am starting to immerse myself in all I can find about the walking route between Valencia and Santiago and have come across repeated references to knives in Albacete. I suppose I vaguely knew that this city was Spain's "knife-making capital", but I wonder if anyone has some specific advice on knives to buy for sons-in-law who camp and hike and boulder and generally are outdoors. I got them very nice knives in Conques once when walking in France, but they are now long lost and much missed. So I thought this might be a nice gift, and not too much weight to add to my backpack.

Any specific recommendations on companies, stores, types of knives? Or am I just going to find a large selection of common knives? (not that I really know what a "special" knife is, however).
