• Nontron knife factory

    Hey 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!

    What EDC are you carrying today?

    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....:) Sam
