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!

He also would like some advice on restoring it, not to sell on but as a decorative piece for himself. Since I know less than sod all about swords I offered to ask on his...Last Post By: Sparkspence Today, 07:34 AMwazza
A collegue of mine dropped my torch into a lube oil compartment. The torch briefly worked and then died. It works intermittently for a few seconds at a time. So I'm wondering if it would be okay if I cleaned up the internals, the problem being that I can't get the bezel out. Is there a tool? Or a...Last Post By: wazza Yesterday, 08:30 PMgriffo32
Rob Bayley S9 VG10 knife (perfect condition) I have very reluctantly decided to put my Rob Bayley S9 knife up for sale. This is a prototype that Rob originally intended to keep for himself. I spoke to Rob about the knife and he said it is a one off and one of his favourite designs. I think I...Last Post By: griffo32 Yesterday, 10:24 PMaribach
