I've searched for "The Latama Legend", but seems nowhere to be found. I can't comment on how good it is, because I could never find it lol. In fact, I've never even heard/read any discussions on it.

Yes... I know this question... I picked up switchblades of italy, art of the switchblade, and antique american switchblades.
These 3 are the start of my reference library. They are hard to find, especially at a reasonable price. Gimme a bit to track down who I bought them from and prices. Should be a starting point at least.

Take the time to find the lowest price.

We are certainly aware of the book's existence, but where can it be found to purchase? I've looked quite a bit with no luck.

I heard there is a new run getting printed with high quality glossy paper and hard covers and a slip case

...yes, Walt Halucha had mentioned that a while back. Certainly looking forward to it. But, I think it's a new book, not the original. I could be mistaken.

From one of the authors on his website, he also mentioned trying to make it available as an amazon online downloadable version.

Do you own a copy and where did you get it?

That’s too bad. Perhaps you’ll be friends again one day. Things happen...
