Re: Your oldest Latama?

Only have one or two old ones. With the Latama in the box stamp. I've heard this is the rarest stamp, but not sure about the earliest, would be cool if this is the very early stamp. Hope to learn more. Excellent blades shown here by all :) That horn is awesome. Wonder what it looked like 70 years a...

Re: Wilh. Weltersbach Weidmannsheil

I have a few Stag fixed blade knives that are quite old and post-war, and are stamped Germany only, and often have the company logo as well. A simple guess is a pattern or standard may have varied by comp...
