Latama Cutlery Walt's 28cm Picklock Automatic Polished Bayonet Knife w/ Abalone Handle

Latama Cutlery Walt's 28cm Picklock Automatic Polished Bayonet Knife w/ Abalone Handle
Back in the early 1950s LATAMA switchblades were prominently displayed in souvenir shops and cutlery store windows smack in the heart of Times Square. Literally hundreds of every size and scale variation that would astound me. Even then, I knew that there was something very special about these quality knives. I had the opportunity to fire one of the LATAMAS and I was hooked for life on the sound and authority that it had when you pressed that magic button!
