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: leo Today, 08:20 AMRelin
To set the scene a while back Mike Read (PITS) offered me his old grinder as a freebie (still going strong) if i popped up to collect it.

I mentioned at the time that...Last Post By: Average Joe Today, 04:41 PMSimon G
So, in the "let's see your rifles" thread, Rapidboy suggested a pistol thread. And as we always listen to the mods on here, let's give RB what he wants! (As opposed to what he needs!:D ) For UK mainland residents, obviously muzzle loaders and air. But for our friends in the not so discriminated...Last Post By: Paul W Today, 11:11 AMFiskar

After many requests for the strops I use I have now made a batch-load which I can offer for sale. The strops are 18" long and 2" wide. Like their maker, they are far from pretty, but they're good at getting an edge polished and truly sharp :) They are made from the same leather I have been using...Last Post By: EMarkM Today, 04:49 PMPaul Holtom
After getting a Cegga axe in the new year but as yet have not decided what to get, thinking along the size and weight of a SFA but a bit thicker for splitting. In the meantime lets see all your lovely Cegga Axes to help me decide.Last Post By: Tommy_B Yesterday, 09:00 PMkamca

So I'm finding myself slipping down a slippery slope and enjoying owning knives as well as the practicality of EDCs. Now I'm settled in with my Spydercos and Byrd, I'm looking for something a little different and although I've looked at reviews under my eyes are bulging, there's not so many...Last Post By: Paul W Today, 12:13 PMAbooPham
