The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Anyone familiar with the Walt's flatguard stilettos? I'm looking for some to add to my collection.
They are some of the best modern stilettos. I believe Walt has them in stock now, but you'd better hurry-they go fast!
They are legal in many states if you keep the blade length down to 4". I carried one 6" for years while on duty. Used it once. I gave it to my Son.
I just carry a regular folding lockback when I'm on the clock - serrations, glass breaker, etc which are more functional to me than a stiletto. I like the stilettos for collection - there's just something beautifully sexy about the lines to me!
Of all stilettos, the flatguard picklocks are my favorite. Walt just released some swivel bolster models, which are great and I had to get a couple of them, but he hasn't produced a true flatguard in years, unfortunately. Talking to him, it seems he may not produce them again until they figure out a tooling issue. The flatguards must be hard on tooling.
I realize this is an old post but if you or anybody you know is in the market for a walts knife I have one never carried never flipped or played with still in the original plastic bag willing to sell at a loss.
I called Quick Release Oil to check on my order. I talked to the wonderful Yankee named ,"Walt Latama". I asked him if he was Italian. His people came from Poland . It sure is wonderful that he is in America creating jobs. I love American success stories. Mr. Walt is looking for dealers now. He is pricy , but his one dealer sells out in a day or two. I love to look at switchblades. Every SC Policeman tells me not to carry one. I have one arm. 1958 Federal Laws says that I can own one with a 3" blade.
