Re: Tuxedo Black-Made Italy

It's a clean beauty! The lock tab looks like a picklock. It's a swivel bolster??

Re: Vintage "Latama" with rare pantograph engraving.

Here is my Latama with the small ears and rare pantograph engraving. The front of the switchblade is stamped "Made in Italy" and the back of the blade is engraved "Latama - Made in Italy".

Re: Vintage "Omega" picklock

Beautiful knife! Omega sure did use lots of different stamps. Certainly, not sure of the original.

Re: Flea market catch

Nice finds! The stiletto appears to be a 1950's Japanese picklock, just missing the bail.
