Latama legend

Post by Lucentcrow » Sat Mar 14, 2020 10:19 am

Ever since I got my 7” fulcrum I’ve studied every bit of it and when someone told me It was probably made by Elio Dibin I’ve also studied as many of his knives that I could,

Now I know he made latama 20cm knives including the square button, these photos show the patent stamp and the tell tail sign of elio on the safety I’ve only seen that shape on elio knives and patent 35958

Also really cool to know that he seemed to work for most of the importers at some level.

The man fascinates me and I hope someone writes a book on him one day :)
