All about Nontron knives

Ceramics, sculpture, upholstery, leather goods, lithography … and cutlery with the workshop of our Nontron factory. The team installed a display rack to provide visitors with a workshop atmosphere by presenting strength tools: polishing disc, pyrography iron, abrasive belts. Knives being finished like blanks of sleeves are also presented, just like a work coat, sawdust …

And to visually feel the atmosphere of the cutlery nearby, photos were hung on the wall, helped by a video shot in the workshops. An excellent introduction to continue by visiting the cutlery without forgetting a passage through the shop that has a full range of knives made in Périgord Vert.

Many people around the knives during the opening of the exhibition of the castle of Nontron.

Evidence of the public’s enthusiasm for Nontron cutlery and crafts, the opening of the exhibition attracted many visitors, well led by the music group “3615 TOUT COURT”.
