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!

Well in the...Last Post By: Muskett Today, 02:04 AMJorgen

I can’t see how you could make a mistake that’ll cause serious problems, but – as I have long and bitter experience of some of the daft things that human...Last Post By: Basemetal Yesterday, 05:43 PMbagman
I traded a Glycine Combat 7 here a few more months ago, superb watch with a very clear face. It's been my main non-work watch since I received it. It's usually on an old school light grey RAF style NATO that's very soft and flexible but makes it easy to slip through the fingers. A couple...Last Post By: bagman Yesterday, 04:38 PMtree_creeper
Now then, following on from the 'show us your favourite cook set ' thread, it's got me hooked again on putting together a little brew/soup kit. I dusted off the old trangia kit which I've had for well over 20 years, decided it was too big as a package and went for the Stanley cook pot rig, which...Last Post By: tree_creeper Yesterday, 09:58 PMJorgen
