This is one of the oldest regional French knives. Originally there was a ball at the end of the handle, but this was replaced in the 19th C by a fishtail, and then by a clog.

More about Nontron

The identity of the Nontron knife was built during the 19th Century. A document dated 1827 (Jomelières  foundry) mentions boxwood knives and the crafting of miniature knives fitting in a hazelnut shell (up to 72). Cutlers collect their boxwood in the forests surrounding Nontron, the Charente and the Causse of Quercy.

This folding knife has very specific characteristics:

•    a pyro-engraved arc shaped motif surrounded by three dots;

•    a blade in the shape of a lance;

•    a boxwood handle available in a variety of shapes: clog (asymmetrical), ball or carp's tail shaped, or with a double ferrule;

•    a brass locking ferrule.
