I might go peek at that myself, Jack ...

I was an electrician in another life, and actually carried an M Klein & Sons version for years ... not sure where she went ... I'm thinkin there's a garage excavation in my near future ...

I'm in total agreement, Aimus, the TL-29 thread should not be shrouded in the fogs of history. Let's bump it back to the front and go to town!

I posted this one in another thread but it should be on the "official" TL-29 thread. A brand new Utica. Yep, Utica is still making them in original configuration (Bear has one with a hawkbill blade).

This is a great thread! ::super_happy:: I love the knives fellas! ::tu:: I just gave my Mom a replacement Camillus TL-29 related to a "no longer employed" handyman stealing hers. She took it hard because it was my Dad's knife. She's much better now! Thanks for the catalog pictures I've copied them to my files for future reference. ::handshake:: Rocky

I think Empire made these knives for them ::nod::

Here is an interesting footnote as to the use of the "Red Devil" trademark;

Red Devil, Inc.. Retrieved 2010-11-24. "Founded as Smith & Hemenway Company, Inc. in 1872 in Hill, New Hampshire, our place in hardware history was established over 134 years ago with production of several types of glass cutters, one of which, the "Woodward Wizard", was patented. ... During a buying trip to Sweden, the company's founder, Landon P. Smith, heard a blacksmith remark "those little red devils" after sparks from a forge singed his arm. The name stuck in Smith's mind and upon his return to the States he began to label many of the tools he sold with the Red Devil trademark. By the late 19th century, do-it-yourselfers as well as professionals were depending on our top-performing products."
