    Found a Pocket Knife

    Found a pocket knife rummaging through a box that's been packed away for several years . Not for sure think I found it in scrapped tool box somewhere , couldn't been grandpas because he took care of tools and knives . Cleaned a small spot off the tang and can see BOK and barely see etching on the blade, have it soaking in Rem oil now.

    It looks like the electricians knife my father-in-law carried.

    Looks like a TL 29 Electricians knife. They issued them to us in the Navy, but they were made by Camillus.

    Company I worked for issued us that style but made by Klein Tools .
    My favorite style pocket knife for years .
    Screwdriver locked but the blade did not. If you were not careful you could lose a finger pushing that thing.

    I had one of the Camillus, from the Navy. Zorched a nice divot in the flat ended blade.

    I found a BOKER chart BOKER U.S.A 1945 - 1983 some on Ebay go for $25 -$75 . The earlier ones with wood handle in good shape worth more, also seen Camillus and Klein listed. Knife is looking a little better , using a small block 220 wet o dry and Goop

    Good on you. I found this one along the Rock Island rail line that went through our hometown in the early 1970's. Still a good knife.
