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: godzilla Yesterday, 10:32 PMTrucker Al

I want to try making some anti scale compound and was hoping for some tips. I'm thinking of using fire clay and silica sand mixed with water to make a paste. I've also read about adding charcoal to the mix..... Has anyone done this? Could the same paste also be used for hamon? ThanksLast Post By: Caerleon Today, 12:09 AMstanners55

The photos show two knives made in Finland. The modern one is a Marttiini Lynx knife 134, but the older one with two blades I cannot identify (mainly through lack of knowledge about makers). I have owned it for around 25 years having been given it by my father, who had owned it but didn't know...Last Post By: TAHAWK Today, 12:25 AMmolletta
