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!

Just noticed that Spyderco prices (at least for non-lockers) have gone back down to pre-brexit vote levels. The PITS is actually lower than that, and is now £260 from £289 in the spring and £411 last week. All the other Maniago knives, plus both the UKPK models, are a tenner less dear than they...Last Post By: aesmith Today, 10:15 AMaesmith
Hi, Just wondering if anyone had found the half stop on the Forum Urban to be more of a hindrance than a help. I find it a little too strong for my taste, and was wondering whether it could be modded to be more like the half stop on the UKPK. Tony SLast Post By: aesmith Today, 07:36 PMLeeroy37
