I like the old TL-29 camillus as well. What type of steel did they use? Seems hard to sharpen when brand new, but once you get the profile down a bit, they can be like a razor.

I looked at the entire TL-29 thread. Nice Knives.

I did not see a Robeson. I could of missed one, don't know. So, here is my one and only WWII Robeson TL-29.
Notice that it has no bail. It never did. However, I've seen Robeson TL-29's with a bail, so I
guess I need to find a nice one.

Robeson made the knife after the war as a civilian item. It's pattern number was 222030,
shown below.

As my dad was an electrician, I have some of his, still. There's a Camillus, a Holub and a Klein.
His black handled Camillus was actually part of a lineman's set with knife and pliers in a leather
two compartment pouch. I'm sure it was post war, though, as the pliers were made by Boker.
The three pieces are not together, but they're all here somewhere. It'd take me a bit of
searching to get them all together again.

I don't know why these photos came out so large. They are only 3"x3" in my photo program,
and all my other picture posts come out correctly.

I believe the steel is 0170-6C, known as Carbon V by Cold Steel and known as CV by Case. The original steel name is 50100-B, one of the most common steels in he industry at least when Schrade and Camillus were in business. I would have to guess that 440A is the most common now coming out of China.

Here is a group shot of my Tl-29 type knives.I have one more but it is buried in a box;a Camillus 4-line with wood scales and a shield stamped,"TL-29";part of a military lineman's kit.
Some individual pictures of the unusual ones:
Colonial marked,"Buckley Powder Co."
Colonial Barlow with a TL-29 type screwdriver blade.
Colonial with saw cut plastic scales(reminds me of a Buck).
Holub with unusual screwdriver blade(cutouts for various sizes of wire)
Klein 3 blade with unusual blade(not sure of it's purpose)_.
Queen with a TL-29 type screwdriver blade.
Ric-Nor Electric Mate(blade not stamped but have seen others so stamped)
Xelite(not sure who made this one)
Colonial 3blade marked,"High Carbon Steel"on pruner blade and,"Colonial" on spear blade.Thought Schrade or Camillus made the High Carbon stamped blades.

IIRC, from what one of our electrician members posted, that tool is made specially to strip the cover off a specific brand of electrical cable.

I am pretty sure Tom Williams said the Xelite was made by Camillus.

That is a nice assortment you have there. Quite a variety of variations on the pattern.

Here is a Sheffield version from the circa 1930 Wostenholm catalogue. Unfortunately, I do not have the knife itself. :D s-k

Interesting aside on that IXL advert:It appears that the blades are stamped on the reverse side of what most knives usually are.As it is not a photograph but rather a rendering,I wonder if they did that to balance out the picture with the copy.
