Re: Older Walt's Custom picklock

Thanks Thom. So, at one time, all Walt's were 3.5mm? I did not know that. Thanks!

Thom Thom, I wonder why the Walt's flatguards with the filework are 3.5mm. The 9" Walt's flatguard pi...

Re: Your oldest Latama?

My only Latama ... which a good friend Eric (Rock and Roll $$$$) sold to me after my rather disappointing snafu with Walt's "Latamas" in Autumn of 2018. It wouldn't be until February 2019 and a visit to the Gator show that I learned Latamas in general aren't really all that rare, they're just expen...

Re: Jndiana Extra

I think I got mine from gunbroker. Can’t recall where the seller was from. The length wasn’t listed in the ad, and I was surprised when it measured 8” instead of the 7” I expected.

Love them all Thom! That Walts Custom up top with the “coffee and cream” colored scales really looks nice!

Re: Jndiana Extra

I looked through LOTS of past posts on both forums and yours was the only one pictured. There was one other discussed and a member was going crazy looking for one. But, I noticed the attention was on the fact that both were 7”. I think the smaller size seemed to be the attraction. Like I mentioned, ...

Re: Your oldest Latama?

Here's another yellow one Eric, just round eared. Latama in a box. ...That's another one I was debating on my oldest Allen, as I think I've read the Latama in the box stamp was "first production". Not sure if that's true or not. I've got another vintage Latama that has tabbed brackets (no D stamp),...

Re: Your oldest Latama?

I had to pick one of two as my oldest, not sure which came first. But, I'll choose this 8" Flatguard Picklock I believe from the late 1940's...

Re: 13" Mauro Mario

Thanks Jeff and Platonic! I'm not positive, but I think the U.S. had them stamp them with the Country of origin, or makers stamp or importers stamp. One thing I've recently seen in a group of collectors actually located in Italy, is that they don't seem to collect (or care) about tang stamps much, b...

Great shellpuller lineup Chris !
Thanks Mike! Someday, I'll find the right/vintage German Shell Puller (by "right", I mean that I can find AND afford! lol). But, it's Italian for now.

Re: Jndiana Extra

Thanks for the replies and info Bill, Terry & Jim! Terry, yours was the only one I saw pics of. It was mentioned that yours was 7”. I’m wondering if your Jndiana stamp had the “Extra” underneath? Maybe all the Jndiana stamps did. I’m just wondering why this one is 8” instead of 7”. Much like Bill’s ...

Jndiana was a cutlery consortium of makers. A broker in Maniago, Italy.
Thanks Bill! Any idea when this knife was produced? It was advertised as 1960’s. Is that possible?
