Latama 13 inch Pair

Post by Quaero »

Enclosed are a couple of nice old 13 inch Latama models.
Latama certainly offered some wonderful horn on many of their knives.

Very nice pair. The Kriss blade would be my preference. Excellent color variation.

Those two are great! I also really like how the horn is flush with the bolsters and wraps around the whole handle really nicely. I prefer this style much more over the more modern day types where some of the scales are not flush and look kind of boxy.

Wonderful horn indeed, and talk about iconic - 13 in. Latamas!

I agree about the rounding and flush horn. Feels and looks so much better. I have had a couple of new knives done like that.

Beautiful pair of Latama's and excellent horn. The few smaller Latama's I've been lucky enough to acquire, are mostly just black horn.

Thanks for the nice comments all, and yes, the rounder handles do feel better in hand.
