Removable bail needed for Robeson utility camp knife 642214

Post by Gone2Three » Mon Sep 05, 2022 8:05 pm

Howdy friends,
I'm in the hunt for a removable bail to replace one that was missing off a Robeson knife I acquired.
The Picture below with bail is for reference... appreciate any help, and thanks ::handshake::

I may have one of these. There are several different sizes of them. The postage on this would be $4 and I assume that would be the case anywhere you went. Can't be shipped in an envelope due to sorting machines. I found a picture of a knife with the same pattern as yours and will post it in case anyone might have an old one laying around. This is from one of Steve's eBay auctions. Your best bet might be to try and find one locally at a yard sale or flea market. Many Colonial and Imperial knives had this type of bail, and they should be cheap.

Yep, that's it!
::hmm:: might consider the alternative purchase of a colonial or imperial equivalent, but would happily pay for the bail plus shipping from y'a if you had one.
The link provided prior equates to roughly 7 bucks plus taxes shipped... so might come out close to the same $ more or less, but I would prefer one if possible off a donor knife ::handshake::

I'm sure I can get you going with a bail. I'll send you a pm with pics in a few days. In the meantime, continue to look and I'll monitor this thread.
