Way wicked cool. I’d have the Latama restored. Is the button the only issue?

Bill is right, they both look the same, I would send the Latama to Bill to be brought life.

Yes i actually communicated with Bill about restoring it, it's been awhile back. I just had a lot going on and never got around to sending it off. The missing button is one issue the other is that someone had tried to sharpen the blade. But i'm sure Bill can make the problems go away.
