El Casco M15 Stapler
The M15 stapler from the Spanish maker El Casco, is a precision made desktop accessory that is a joy both to use, and just to stare at. It's a hand polished chrome object of beauty; even the adjuster screws have knurled heads.
El Casco was established in 1920 to produce precision revolvers. This niche market in the weapons world required highly skilled experts to make them. However, by 1934, with the advent of the great depression, the market for these firearms had disappeared, forcing the company to diversify. El Casco realised that with the skills their workforce possessed, they could produce the finest desktop accessories in the world; so, that's what they did, with the introduction of the original M5 stapler.
There's nothing mass produced with El Casco products. Every single component of their fine desktop accessories is handmade with precision, and then painstakingly assembled. Like Bugattis, every individual part is numbered. To achieve the flawless mirror finish, the steel base is repeatedly hand polished before the final chrome or gold plating.
El Casco recruits and trains its own apprentices to ensure that the skills required to produce these wonderful products will be with us in the future.
If anyone asks if they can borrow your stapler, you would be justified in answering with a firm, "No."
