Old/New School TL-29

Postby glennbad » Tue Mar 13, 2018 3:46 pm

Just finished this one. Nice old school elements, with a touch of modern burlap micarta. Kinda neat, IMO.

Nice retro look Glenn! ::tu::
The burlap micarta with that green coloration looks like a celluloid EO jack I have.
It looks great!

I didn't think I liked burlap micarta, but that is a great looking knife.

Glenn, that is an incredibly good job you did on the Tl-29. They are very special to me, and i just love that Green Bulap Micarta covers you fixed to it.

A few years back i asked Dale to make one to my specifications, and when completed the results were astounding.

It sits on my desk daily from where i admire it. These are the before and after pics. I hope you like them.

This knife has been on before, but it is long enough to have another peek. Many thanks again Dale for the superb job you did on this one.
Tony.
