History of the ICEL brand
The first lines of kitchen knives of the ICEL brand were born in a small family-run workshop founded in the 40s by three brothers. Here the steel was forged with which the first lines of knives and cutlery were made. Originally this workshop was based in Ribafria a small town near Benedita in Portugal.
Originally the range of products made by the ICEL brand consisted of a series of pocket knives made entirely by hand forged in precious steel with high levels of carbon. The handles were made with animal bones and horns. With the expansion of production, the distribution of ICEL knives passed from local to regional and with the arrival of the main means of transport, they began to become known in all the different nearby locations.
Already in 1945, given the enormous success of the brand, the small company that at the time had 25 employees was restructured to found the company that takes the name of Indústria de Cutelarias from Extremadura, from which the first ICEL brand was born. .
