Nontron knife factoryHey all,
just got back last night from a holiday to (mostly) sunny france!
visited the knife factory in Nontron and thought you might like a look as they were kind enough to let me take some pics (sorry about the poor quality as always)
just above the factory which is perched on what feels like the edge of a cliff
factory entrance (top floor was a sales room then the basement was where they produced the knives
where they work their magic!
display showing the stages of putting handles on the knives
a few of the showroom and displays
a few of the small pieces, and some smaller and then smaller still
lastly my purchase for the day, snakewood slipjoint, brought couple of simple kitchen knives as-well for veg etc but still haven't finished unpacking!

The rules as I figure them should be fairly...Last Post By: camperman Yesterday, 07:34 PMcarlMichael

Game! :) I feel a need for a great big coat for sitting and standing around in, and just, you know putting on when getting out of the car. I have a ton of fleeces and windbreakers and downies and cottons and waterproofs etc all of which layer up lovely, but I'd like an option of one coat. ...Last Post By: mike whittler Yesterday, 03:24 PMkongjudas
I just got this in the post today and it didn't feel right from the beginning. After a few minutes I noticed a fair amount of blade play in all directions (circular). It doesn't say SRM or Sanrenmu anywhere. I got it with a Sheath instead of the original box and I paid $ 45 for it because it's a...Last Post By: Golier Yesterday, 10:12 PM
