    Nieto Knives is Italy company. They use steel 440A, low price. Quality relatively good.

    Hi kactlc:

    I am a forum member fron Spain ( Europe ),... and Nieto is a Spanish`s brand. ( sorry Slon, not Italian ). They use in all of their knives 440c stell ( not 440a ). and they work all they knives well. They are very good if you know how you pay for it. ( of course you can compare it with top americanīs brands,... but another decent americanīs brand canīt be compare with the tops...and it continue been good ). For me is the better spanishīs brand. ( I prefer it to another spanish brandīs like Aitor o Muela ).

    In the net you can see a good selection of their knives in the germanīs page of tool-shop: http://www.tool-shop.com/knives/nieto/index.html

    The address of the brand is:
    M. NIETO S.L.
    Poligono Campollano
    Avda. 1 PARCELA 44-45. ALBACETE
    SPAIN

    At last, I think when you buy a european folder is better a lockback folder over another lock systems.

    I have one Nieto in my collection,a fairly short (4 1/2"blade)skinner.It is one of the prettiest fixed blades I have, with a brass hilt and polished wood grip (may be a laminate).It is of 440c steel and is quite sharp-not quite shaving-out of the box.It came with a very nice leather sheath.I have not used it, and probably won't, but it was well worth the price,which was nominal as best I recall.I think I got it on a closeout from SMKW.I don't hesitate to recommend one, if the price is right.

    Sorry, Nieto is from Spain. But steel IS 440A, not 440C. I never saw knife from European company with 440C blade. 440B maybe ....

    I honestly don't know the composition of the steel of Nieto knives, but the few I've seen have been quite hard. Perfectly good using knives. They are distributed in the U.S. by United Cutlery.

    It's not true that European knife companies don't use 440C. Boker, the German manufacturer, uses 440C exclusively.

    there are a problem with my english...I am learning it.
    Of course I donīt say that there arenīt a Nietoīs knive with 440a . They forged a lot of different knives in his history,... and of course it had differenīt types of steels, like Boker. I only try to imform you that all their new models are made in 440c steel.
