I don't always rush to join knife forums

Post by oldegrouch »

Hello all from the oldegrouch.
Why oldegrouch?
Beause oldtoothlessbassmaster was 2 letters over the max for a user name.

Retired, but wife is still working from home so fishing, thrifting, scrapping, dumpster diving & estate sales
get me outta the house & more importantly away from the weekend crowds doing the same thing.

Favorite words in an estate sale ad...PICKERS DELIGHT!

EDC - in the 1900's I wore out a bunch of Swiss Army knives named "The Tinkerer" & by 1999 went
full time Leatherman Titanium.

So what am I doing here?

A very recent unexpected find in a desk drawer, behind the pens & paperclips, on the last day of a "PICKERS DELIGHT" estate sale gave
me a need to do some deep forensic searches on "LATAMA" Made in Italy

TalkBlade.info was among the top hits and a further search on the home page showed over 4,375 hits on just "LATAMA" alone.

Among some of the 1st threads I started to read, 1 statement really sunk in:

"DO NOT SHARPEN IT, DO NOT POLISH IT, DO NOT TIGHTEN THE BLADE PIVOT,
Oil it but do not get oil on the horn scales.
When closing it, press the button. . .do not let it "click" when squeezed closed."

To be Continued

Thank you all for welcome replies.

Hello Bill, I have been reading up on this one almost a week and yes I have seen some wild numbers. The pictures have gone live over on the Switchblade channel.
