Arcos Hermanos S.A. is considered as the first Spanish cutlery-knife making company being one of the most internationally recognised companies. The first piece which ushered in the commencement of the ARCOS company in 1734, were the first scissors of the brand, created by Juan de Arcos and which are currently found in the Museo de la Cuchillería de Albacete (Albacete Cutlery Museum). The National Archaeological Museum in Madrid has in its collection other pairs of scissors, made by Juan de Arcos, dating back to 1745 and 1746. Another unique piece which is part of Arcos’s history.
