"Silver Steel" does have a history in cutlery manufacturing.

My mind connects it with Sheffield cutlery, but there's no reason it could not have been used here.

Wikipedia has this to say about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_steel

Whether Robeson was actually using this tool steel, I do not know.

Do you think the total etch could have been. "SHEFFIELD SILVER STEEL"?

Thanks for that !! ::tu::

Now that we are at this point, I think I might have seen reference to a similar tool steel on a metal handled Robeson knife.

"FIRTH-STERLING STAINLESS STEEL"

A Google image search for "Sheffield Silver Steel" produces a lot of straight razors so marked or etched.

Great - I think the evidence points to Sheffield Charlie ::tu:: but I can’t make out the first word of the etch at all ... I don’t think it says Firth and not enough room for Sheffield ::hmm:: ..

I can almost think I see the ".......ld".

Wishful thinking, but I think there is plenty of room on the blade for "SHEFFIELD" to have been there.

I'm liking this knife more and more.

I was messing with it today. It makes more noise snapping into the half-stop positions than most knives do at open and close. ::uc::

This knife has got some springs.

I put all the Terrier knives and razors into a glass top display case I bought at the Lexington Knife Show.

I love the display Charlie.
Especially the Barlow with TCC on the bolster.
I've been looking for one of those for a long time.
I've never even seen one in person, just pictures.
