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!

My wife wants to get me a knife for my birthday, I want a fixed blade knife, I want something for hunting and survival tasks, I'm also in the military so something for my belt gear and can take abuse, I was thinking about a Gerber strongarm, but not sure, nothing too expensive, thank you.Last Post By: Paul W Today, 02:54 AMwhite tiger
Hello gents This style of Bowie is proving really popular I'm very pleased to say. The blade is 0-1 tool steel, 10" long, 1 9/16" wide, just shy of 1/4" thick at the ricsso and 15" long from butt to tip.

As it is just over 4mm thick, I suppose a bushcraft knife would be simplest, I guess it's too thick for a kitchen knife. But I do like the...Last Post By: AJH_Knives Today, 06:02 PMbendeneo
