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!

Cheers PS: don't want to spend too much money so any advice on budget air rifle would be very...Last Post By: Paul W Today, 01:06 PMNiloticus1
I really thought I'd seen it all at our airports but the "security" halfwits have gone and excelled themselves again..... I was travelling through Heathrow on my way to West Africa via Casablanca a few weeks ago and was amazed to be held up at the security check for the crime of having put my...Last Post By: hughtrimble Today, 12:25 PMJedidiah
