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!

Having tested quite a few stove systems, from butagaz to paraffin, from a jetboil to a brilliant but noisy Army cooker fixed by our own Mojo, I have decided to go back to basics and go for methylated spirit. So Trangia it seems to be. I believe that the 27 is realistically the best size for me....Last Post By: Rustee Today, 01:22 AMmeles meles
