I know nothing about TL-29's. Had a dealer at a gun show ask me if I'd ever seen a TL-29, made by I think George Shrade, Walden Ny. Now the knife had wooden grips, and the number on the metal grip shield was 16316. Anyone know anything. THX SKIP

The TL-29 knives that show up in Cole's book are all marked TL-29 on the shield or TL-29 is stamped on the wood. The markings on the bottom of the knife blade are "SCHRADE" over "CUT.CO." over "WALDENNY". The screw driver blade has "TO RELEASE PUSH CENTER LOCK TO LEFT" marked on the blade. Most knife makers made electrian's knives for both civilian and military use; this may be one that was intended for the civilian market.

thorin6-Probably correct. I looked at Cole's also, (should have mentioned) it is my only source for TL-29's. The dealer was trying to make something big of it. I really wasn't gonna buy it, but figured one of the gang might know, just in case. Never hurts to throw something out there on this site. THX SKIP

Mike Silvey doesn't show that marking (16316) in his book on pocketknives either, although he shows a lot of TL-29s.

Silvey shows them in POCKET KNIVES of the UNITED STATES MILITARY pages 93 & 94. But they don't have the 16316 marking. Bill

Thanks Guys! SKIP


Well, I know it's not the model / pattern number...my thought is that it's a number added to a plain shield to denote a department, craft, unit, person...something along those lines.
