When I was a kid I loved my grandfather Shorty Reed more than anybody in the world. Sadly he past away when I was 9. I still miss him so much I'm fighting back tears as I type this. He was an electrician in the army during WWII. He gave me a TL-29 electricians knife. I no longer have that original knife that he gave me as I snapped the blade off as a kid using it as a pry bar. I don't believe electricians use them much any more due to their use of fancy wire strippers. Any how I ran across an old one in a local antique store and the rest is history as they say. I have a small collection of 10 now.

Lot of history to some of those old knife designs that is mostly forgotten today. Kind of like the Sailor’s Knife / Rigging Knife with the general purpose blade and the large awl looking device used to untie knots!
