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: lcoolmarko85 Yesterday, 12:44 PMfrank1ss1mo

Hello all, First and foremost, this thread is not designed to be a definitive guide to the kukri, rather a visual repository of the more commonly encountered styles. At the current moment in time there is nobody on earth qualified to do justice to such a vast subject. Many have tried, and all...Last Post By: mrcjgscott Yesterday, 01:39 PMdkonopinski
I have acquired an Sanrenmu 7092SUX-PH. I won't tell you how I got it, but suffice it to say that I'm considering marketing the email trail that resulted in it becoming my property as a sovereign insomnia remedy. I'm not always a patient man but I can be bloody minded if I feel I deserve better...Last Post By: bwildered Yesterday, 02:08 PMpuukko3883
I've been watching Alone on The History Channel here in the States, great show !! Seeing the contestants with their survival knives, kukris, trackers, bowies, leukut got an urge up in me to have a big blade survival knife. I decided to go with an Ontario Knife Company SP8. I'm going to...Last Post By: megalift Today, 08:48 AMswoosh
Pride myself on being able to sharpen all my knives, from bushcrafters to Swiss army knives but one is defeating me completely, from what I can tell it may have been badly sharpened by previous owners. It's my paramilitary 2. I've had it on my sharpmaker, with the edges blacked out with a...Last Post By: swoosh Yesterday, 11:06 AMcamperman
Would a kiln that has a top temp of 1050c be ok for 14C28N? And if so, would you buy one or look at something that goes up to 1200c for 3 times the price? just in case. Sorry not a very clear question. Don't say "buy both" as that's not an option. Thanks All.Last Post By: shing Yesterday, 08:07 PM
