    Fury knives don't have a good reputation, I know, but is this the same Fury company in the name Muela/Fury? Does Fury make knives for Muela? I like Muela knives, but that Fury name thrown in makes me a bit curious.

    WARNING...WARNING...1st post on this site!!! I have been researching Fury myself and came to this forum to do it. I havent heard a good word yet, and Meula was one of my other choices. I"m in charge of adding some "mens" products to my wifes slowly growing jewelry business, and I suggested adding some money clips, knives etc. She sends me some link for wholesale knives and thats what they were! I should have known better. I"m not sure "who owns who" but I'd be skeptical either way.

    Muela has been making decent knives in Spain for a long time. Fury is a marketing company with a generally poor reputation for quality products.

    Putting the two together suggests that Muela is out of business and the name has been sold for marketing purposes. I wonder if this is the case.

    Anyway, you could find much better. I think Kershaw had a money clip knife. Spyderco has the Cricket and the Spin, which are excellent knives that would serve well as money clips. I myself carry a Boker Subcom, which is also in that class. Katz had a very nice money clip knife, but I don't know if it's still available.

    The problem with the really cheap wholesale knives, like Frost cutlery, is that the quality just isn't there. You can tempt customers with the low price, but will they ever buy from you again after they see what you send them?

    Thanks for the info. I've already thought we should hold off on the knife stuff. I'd rather offer quality. I already know Frost is no good. I have a S/W SWAT knife knock off from them I got for a few bucks, from a coworker. LAST time I ever bought anything from him.

    I would suggest William Henry knives for your jewelry store.

    Curious, where are you seeing the Muela and Fury names linked together? I don't think I've ever seen that.

    William Henry might be expensive to start with. If you want something relatively inexpensive but of decent quality, that actually looks good, Buck has a number of small knives in different handle materials.

    Memory
    Executive
    300 Series
    500 Series

    No sense making knives a big part of the business until you see what kind of interest her customers might have.

    Fury and Muela are both distributed by Joy Enterprises, but I don't think they have anything to do with each other. Could be wrong though.

    Fury are mostly Chinese made and of low to medicre quality. Muela are a much higher quality knife.

    Hi!

    Here in Spain Muela is the most known brand right now. They have all kind of knives, some cheap and some really expensive, but they are all spanish made. I don't think they have anthing to do with Fury.

    Lately there have been lot's of critics in the spanish knives market regarding the chinese knock offs, they are hurting a lot the knives industry and specially the biggest one brand, Muela.

    Don't bother with Fury. They tend to make effective looking knives that really are not. I've seen a lot of those sold in questionable stores, because the kids drool over them in the window.

    Muela on the other hand is another story. I still have my first "real" knife I ever bought, a Muela Mirage. From memory it's a 7" clip point with a rubber feeling handle and a good thick leather sheath (exactly like the one in the image above).

    Believe me, I have severely punished this knife, yet it's still like new! Holds an edge for a supernaturally long time too. I feel even better about this when it only cost me less than $40.

    Stay well away from Fury unless you want a useless display piece, but definitely go with Muela!

    One point worth considering though is that the sheath is definitely a Muela item, and it does seem to follow their style of big blades.

    A co-worker asked me to touch up a Muela for him tonight. One side of the blade had "Muela Spain" while the other side had "Fury 90000" on it. The steel was listed on the blade as "molybano vanadian" or something similiar. I assumed it was a Chrome Molybedinium Vanadium steel mix. The steel was very hard and difficult to touch up with the small diamond steel and ceramic rods I keep at work. F&f was good along with a nice sturdy leather sheath. I do not know when he got it as it was a gift.

    Opinels, Douk Douks and some American slip joints like the yellow Cases and Black Cherry Queens? Maybe even SAKs and multi tools? The jewelry store crowd might be more likey to get a classy pocket knife they can bring to the office. The suburban set will probably get more use out of a good folder than a big fixed blade.

    It looks to me like Muela is making some knives for Fury, not the other way around. The 90000 series Fury knives are all made in Spain by Muela.

    I saw an old Muela at the Prescott az swap meet also has the fury name on it. It appears to have some age on it. The handle is not like most, looks like ivory, brass accents duble edged.
