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!

Met up with Danny (Basemetal) yesterday to tackle the Aonach Eagach ridge in Glen Coe. Both had a bit of trepidation throughout the week due to there being heavy snow forecast and with that in mind we had a couple of other routes on the back burner just incase - the ridge has a bit of a reputation...Last Post By: Hatethatgiraffe Yesterday, 11:50 PMXTX
Hi there everybody, I have been reading loads of threads on here and watching reviews of Spyderco Pingos etc on YouTube, which made me want one to see what all the fuss is about...
