• 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)

    sam

    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

    Karambits Seized

    Thread Starter: lozofbuk

    After several years of generally trouble free dealing with the UKBA they've decided to seize all the karambits from our latest shipment, I'm waiting on the paperwork at present but my opinion is it's got to be the oversized lanyard that they've decided must make them a knuckle duster. Mulled...

    Thread Starter: africanex

    In all seriousness. I have a plague of vervet monkeys that are getting beyond cheeky. pulling thatch off guest tents, stealing pepper grinders, attempting to eat them (and then dropping them in the river when they cannot) and pretty much anything else not nailed down. My list is endless. ...
