With so much discussion about the TL -29 knives I thought I would post this old blueprint I found some where. I thought it was interesting.

Also here is a picture of the Camillus model 27 that I carry every day. Texas Ebony handles and a screw driver delete. Stays scary sharp Unique enough that every one that see it wants to have a look at it.

Let's see yours.

Jeff

Thats pretty cool Jeff,
I picked up two cammilus electricians knives a few days ago, with plans to remove the screwdriver and a rehandle, just have been looking for the free time to start on them. Nice one! ::tu::

A great start to a good thread ::tu::

I will start scanning knives, but first, here are some pics of a Schrade Electricians knife, window display or box insert, (I am not certain which it was). I believe it dates to the Schrade Cut. Co. era. I don't remember where I got these from.

Note that the 2nd & 3rd images are actually different halves of the same page.

Here is a scan I happened to have handy.
The top knife is an Ulster and the bottom is a Kingston. This was the first Kingston I got, and is in pretty rough shape. Since then I have gotten some better examples, and will post some later.

Kingston Cutlery Co. was a company formed by Ulster & Imperial for the primary purpose of making knives for US Government contracts. Kingston USA (the knife shown) was a brand name that belonged to Ulster and was used from 1915 to 1958, according to Goins.

Very nice TL-29's !!

I love 'em. I used one recently rewiring and adding several boxes in my shop. It saved me lots of time and headaches, wondering where I left the screwdriver or my knife. ::shrug::

I really enjoy seeing the oldies with the shields.
Jeff

Here is a Cattaraugus from my collection. One of the problem with the TL-29 pattern is that the lock for the screwdriver often gets in the way of a clear pic of the tang stamp.

The tang stamp of this knife is:
CATTARAUGUS (arched)
CUTLERY CO
LITTLE VALLEY

I cannot see if there is a NY after the LITTLE VALLEY or not (nor do I know if there should be). This is the only Catt I own. Perhaps someone who is more familiar with them can fill me in on what the tang should read. I checked the fine research on Catts here on AAPK, but did not find a list of tang stamps.

Someone has obviously tried to replace the pivot pin in this knife and kinda made a mess of it. The springs are strong, but when they re-pined it they got it a bit tight. It has fair snap & half stops, but it could be better. I am tempted to take it apart and make new nickle silver bolsters and put a nickle silver pin in it.

Does anyone know what the original bolsters were made of? I would think steel, but that is a guess. Maybe one of you Cattaraugus aficionados could enlighten me.

Thanks,
Dale

hey dale, according to my reference books, there should be N.Y. under the LITTLE VALLEY. this stamp was used from 1886-1963. i believe the bolsters were steel. that's a fine old catt.
