Nontron kitchen knives - traditional French knives
Nontron kitchen knives are made by hand by Coutellerie Nontronnaise in Perigord, France. Nontron knives are considered to be one of the oldest French knives. With the first reference to the Nontron knives around the start of the 13th century. Nontron knives can be recognized by the reversed V-symbol in the blade, but you can often also find this symbol in the handle. These figures were burned into the wood of the handle completely by hand. We, unfortunately, do not know the meaning behind this symbol. Today these are the marks that tell you, you are dealing with a real Nontron knife.
