At the Nontronnaise cutlery you will not get tired of Carnets de Julie, a magnificent gastronomic and heritage ode to the Périgord Vert.

The Carnets de Julie special Périgord Vert were again the subject of a replay on France 3. In the harshness of winter, Julie Andrieu has indeed recapoté 204 cabriolet to visit Nontron and its region. After a cooking session for the preparation of chestnut cake, the well-appointed Nontronnais, go to the 27th minute direction La Coutellerie Nontronnaise, with a small historical reminder: 1650 marks the date of the wedding between Guillaume Legrand, master cutler Paris, with Marie Belleterie.

All about making Nontron’s knife

Nicely nicknamed iron man by Julie Andrieu, Bernard Faye, former master cutler now retired, presents him the place of manufacture of the oldest knife in France. Direction the reserve, presentation of boxwood that made the legend of Nontron, also considered as ironwood, solid and very hard. Bernard then cuts the handle in two rectangles before being shot. It is then cut before mounting the knife. On the handle, the 5 pieces are prepared: the blade, the fixed ferrule, the shaft, the safety ring and the seal.

Everything is then mounted and riveted with a hammer. The brass ferrule is finally blocking the blade. The pyrography session, the installation of the Nontron seal and the polishing complete this session like no other.
