This forum is dedicated to the discussion and display of old knives. The rich history of all the many companies that made them through the early years will be found here as well as many fine examples of the cutlers art. Share pictures of your old knives and your knowledge here!
thumper your Merrimac set is a good one especially as it has the 'tumbler' (drinking glass that is not glass). Most of these sets of eating utensils do not have a container for drinking from. Your pics are not good so nature of the handle material cannot be guessed at. Some sets have ivory handles but more are imitation ivory. kj
Does anyone know the value of a Robesons Pocket Outfit #50 in very good condition, from about 1930-1950? under the Robeson discussion, there are pictures posted of one of these kits, but that one in at least 20-30 years older than mine- any insight would be greatly appreciated, with thanks..
Nice kit Nigel! Welcome to AAPK! I have the same kit in the same leather wallet but the name is A.K.B. The Kit, or something like that. I will have to find it and take some pics. I found mine in a house I rented in the 1970s. I had forgot I even had it.
