    • The Nontronnaise cutlery, heir to an immemorial know-how, is part of the French landscape of regional knives.

      A Nontron is more than a style : it's a genre that we defend and that wants to say a lot about our territory and our know-how.

      In this universe, Nontron's knife is an ancestor and inspires many legends. This imaginary going back to the beginning of time relies as much on its imagined forms as on its distinctive pyrograved sign.

      His story is so long that it is difficult even to date his birth. However, specialists agree that Nontron's knife is the oldest knife in France and dates back at least to the 15th century.

      But who says tradition does not say immobility. On the contrary, the cutlery Nontronnaise, in its case of wood and aluminum signed Luc-Arsene Henry, has offered the services of renowned designers like Olivier Gagnere, Eric Raffy, Christian Ghion.

      Heirs of a long local cutlery tradition, the cutlers of today are still working to make by hand the Nontron with the same gestures as their predecessors. The workshop, close to the heart of the city, allows visitors to see and appreciate the craft.

      Free visit of the workshop : all year round from Monday to Friday 9h-12h and 13h30-17h30.
      By appointment for groups.

    I visited this knife factory with curiosity. The building is modern and well integrated into the environment. From its promontory you have a splendid view. The bright store highlights the production made on site and as an extension, the gallery overlooks the manufacturing workshop where each worker makes his knife from start to finish by changing post. Very interesting.

    Rustic knife, very average finishes ("unfortunate" hammer blows ...), still paid 63 €, with an unsharpened blade! Great progress to be made to match the quality of a Laguiole (even if the blades come from Forges de Laguiole)! In addition, the saleswoman without asking me retained the "credit" option of my bank card (which I never use and always choose "cash") which allowed me to spend time with the bank to modify !

    July 2019. Have come with my old Nontron, I've done it again for nine free! Sharpening and brushing. Good welcome. High visibility on the production workshop. 2 small videos of classic chains show cutlery. Short expo. Free entry.
