1st Latama

Post by rangerscott »

Hi guys/gals! I obtained this 13 " Kriss Blade Latama from a guy off Craigslist at a STEAL! He lives in Ohio. I learned later on that Latama sold many autos in Ohio. It has a hair trigger and does not want to stay shut. Has Patina on the blade and back spring. It came with some dried out greenish blonde horn with several bug bites. I sent it to my good friend Rick Giroux (whom many of you know) and he did a great job with some new choice French Point Horn!I did keep the original scales for reference. I have a nephew who sings Italian Opera with the NY metro opera and he will inherit this knife due to his interest in things Italian. etc. Wish I could find more pics ...mabey later. Enjoy! :)

Hi Redeye:I could have kept them but they were so dry and rough that I thought a new set would last longer. Anyway..if my nephew wants to put em back on ..he can do so.

The length of it looks more like an 11 inch to me.
