Very nice knife there, MrWatch.
The Camillus Tl29 is a a favorite of mine/ours around here.
It is a sturdy, useful, well made hunk of knife.
I and others have several. Testament to their genus.
Enjoy your's and get some more. They're worth it.

I was issued a Camillus TL-29 just like that one around 1971 in the Marine Corps.
I still have it. ::nod::

I haven't found the right one yet but I also like them. A lot!
Actually, I am quite the Camillus fan.

Thanks for the details Mr. Watch. It's nice to know what I am looking at. ::tu::
