Re: Vintage "Latama" with rare pantograph engraving.

Re: Vintage "Latama" with rare pantograph engraving.

sorry to be the bearer of bad news but they are for sure 1940's picklocks but not real latama's , they have some of same characteristics as real latama's is why they were used for the pantograph, the seller put the marking on there to make more money off of knife plain and simple guys , latama pickl...

Re: Vintage "Latama" with rare pantograph engraving.

nice old picklock but not a real latama , there was lots of talk on these pantograph marked knives , i like few others do not believe they are Real there is no proof the markings were made in the 1950's or when the knives were made.

Re: $$$ DROP >> New Walt's 11" Swinguard Honey Blonde Half Grind Stiletto

AGA makes knives the old way (like they should) with thick liners 1.2mm, D-stamped liners old style safety nickel/silver buttons safety caps and guards , if AGA makes a 11" swing it will blow these away guaranteed , AGA just like any company makes and sells products that sell good and honestly pickl...

Re: Heads up swingguard collectors

thom AGA makes just as nice horn as yours maybe you havent seen any but they made them , also i always hated the flat button , it reminds me of the 11" wsb swinguards which had flat buttons . these are still not worth 500 dollars each in my book , you could have a complete custom 5mm 11" swinguard m...
