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: Keyman Today, 05:24 PMRopeman
I started taking the 'Winterise your car' thread a little off topic with waffle about my Land Cruiser so I thought I'd start a little thread for folk to chat about their off road wagons. Here's mine, a 1988 Toyota HJ60. 4.0 litre straight six Diesel engine, astonishingly unsophisticated...Last Post By: roestalker270 Today, 09:34 AMChui
Don't know about you guys, but I am not enjoying this weather - so, being a southern hemisphere boy, I look forward to our annual long weekend down in deepest darkest Kent. This is a chilled, relaxed time with our BB mates in a stunning spot. Paul (Bardster) is our fine, fine host, and as ever,...Last Post By: pieinthesky Today, 05:35 PMRu Titley
Sorry I've not been around much just loads on at the minute . I thought it might be wise to start a Ru projects thread rather than keep on posting individual ones up as it will be easier for me to maintain long term as long as You folks still like to see what Ive been up too ;). Some of you...Last Post By: Corso Today, 03:38 PMNoddy
I am thinking about getting myself a 5" – 5 ½" camp knife for a while. I have been looking at a few things but nothing seems quite right. So, I thought I'd ask for some suggestions as to what to do next. It's a knife that is intended to pair with a folding saw for camping and will be asked to...Last Post By: Corso Today, 04:58 PMMartyn
Went to Sainsbury's this afternoon and among other things, noticed they were stocking Nido whole milk powder. I'd heard this stuff was supposed to be good, so I picked up a 400g tin. It's amazing. Add water and it's err, ...milk. Pretty much exactly the same as silvertop. Easily good enough to...Last Post By: filleep Today, 06:42 PMalphaburner
Hi All So I've finally decided to buy a good set of binoculars and would like you're advice please. Stalkers especially. Need to be rugged and excellent in low light conditions . Stalking is mainly on open fields with a little on hill and a little in woodland. Not completely sure on price range...Last Post By: kenj Yesterday, 08:40 PMStuart Mitchell
Thought you might like to see these, the fruit of my Wednesdays labour, most of it anyway. Khunjar blades cut from 5mm s/s, double edged and ready for ht. They are to be mirror polished, I'll get futher photos when they are done :) Cheers, Stu :)Last Post By: OldGreyDog Today, 12:30 PMThe Elusive DrX
Hi So I went along a different path this time and instead of just buying knives (and selling the odd one to make space) I saw the classifieds with a different option. The blade I will discuss is the Ladybug ZDP-189 - a fine knife already. Someone willing to do all the hard work and turn my...Last Post By: nicknohair Today, 05:40 PM
