A friend of mine and his wife went on vacation a couple weeks ago. He brought this to me last week!!! I know there’s a 40 year or so span on these being made. Anyone have any idea where this might be in that time span by looking at the photos?? Thanks for any help.

I think I like this one better than the NYK that you recently posted, but 2 awesome, quality pieces. I really like an old barehead jack with great looking bone/jigging, nice stamp too!!! Congratulations on a great knife addition! Roger comes up with some great stuff. You better get some dry ice, and overnight him some fresh Florida shrimp and grouper so you stay on his good list. :lol:

Thanks Ike, I hadn’t thought about the shrimp and grouper. I always like the jumbo shrimp, but to catch snook! The grouper should work because Roger does come up with some good ones ::tu:: ::tu::

Beauty. Looks like great shape and killer bones. Great score.

I'm not sure the year this Robeson was made but after looking the pins over I think it is older than '60. 626240 stamp.

That is a beauty of a Robeson, Iman, classic jigging and really nice looking bone. The first 2 shots are great at showcasing the knife, but that 3rd one is my favorite, really nice shot!
