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!

http://www.heinnie.com/fantoni-hb01-s125v-limited-edition This seems a bit nuts to me! I'm sure it's just me but companies are seemingly finding it easier and easier to justify putting big old price tags on things these days. The new spyderco prices have shocked me recently tooLast Post By: burntrice Yesterday, 10:54 AMDr Forinor
I was looking at my very mediocre collection and found that I don't have a particular knife which can have a status such as a "drawer queen". Most, if not all, of my knives are users & not all too special. My most special knife at the moment is a PITS Mk3, which will be added to by the Spyderco...Last Post By: Chui Yesterday, 11:58 PMcoryjones
