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!

Thought I'd give this a go. Sorry if it's been tried before but I quite like the version on the other side of the pond. Everyone gets a bit creative with their camera's... Plus it's a nice opportunity to see what's out there....:) SamLast Post By: bonzodog Today, 03:22 PMRelin
To set the scene a while back Mike Read (PITS) offered me his old grinder as a freebie (still going strong) if i popped up to collect it.

I mentioned at the time that...Last Post By: san-mai-usa Yesterday, 10:06 PMRoman Blaha

Hi folks. I was just wondering if any of you guys have a list (mental or physical - I have written mine down) of knives you are wanting to buy within the next 6 months or so? I've been away from the "knife world" for 18-24 months until recently and I haven't really caught up with what's what. I...Last Post By: Paul W Yesterday, 09:55 PMosu!
Interesting new Ganzo Again it begs the question when is a homage a fake. Clearly branded Ganzo so hard to argue a fake. However desire clearly 'inspired' by another manufacturer. Ether way for less than £15 I am tempted! Just noticed weighs in at 205g so quite a lump.Last Post By: Incensedmatt Today, 12:43 PMChui
The day has come, as I thought it would - but sooner - that am saying, wow - this is good......and from China Daneel is to blame ;) - and started this >thread< - and thought I'd give 'LW Knives' a heads-up.
