    • 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.

    Inevitable when you go to Nontron, we went to the Coutellerie Nontronaise and its store. Very friendly welcome from the female staff who go out of their way to answer your most technical questions. The store is a veritable museum, to make fans pale. A bay window vs allows to appreciate the work of the cutlers during the different phases of manufacture of a knife. This proves that there are still men of the art! The knives produced are very well finished, given the confidentiality of production, the value for money is excellent. Some border on the masterpiece. Be sure to visit the historic shop in the city center, it is definitely worth a look.

    Very beautiful manufactured knives with boxwood handles. The workshops are visible thanks to a glazed gallery located above. Small film of Julie's notebooks very complementary.

    zero after-sales service Even if you come on Friday morning to have your "two" knives sharpened, they don't do it on a dedicated day... You have to drop them off the day before!!! So if you live 30km away, you have to travel 120km to get sharpened "Free". Thank you very much for your understanding!!!
