SHOW YOUR NEW (TO YOU) ROBESON

The first Robeson knives were imported by Millard Robeson from England and Germany exclusively. This continued from 1979 until 1896 when Robeson began manufacturing knives in the United States. Since inception, the company has gone through several reorganizations & eventually ended up as a Queen Cutlery brand.

Junebug I like that knife, I'm guessing with the arch over usa 1917-1939, no pattern# probably there is a 542 somewhere in there. I really like those robeson knives.

I suspect it's circa WWII and possibly an issued knife.

Forget the dating on tang stamps on this one.

It should have bone handles, but has rough black instead.

Pattern number would have been 622214. No pattern number speaks for WWII issue as well.

I just bought this one off Ebay. See the interesting details in The Robeson Cutlery Co thread in Knife Lore.

Well, the Robeson 622806 3 5/8" EO Electrician's Jack arrived today.

This knife is better than I thought. Better than suggested by the auction photos. In fact, it's as nice as any knife I own and I own some very nice Robesons.

It snaps like a bear trap. The blades are perfectly centered between the center and outer liners. The original Robeson glaze finish is near perfect. This knife has not been cleaned in any way. It's very close to a "factory fresh" knife. The backsprings look like mirrors. The brown bone handles are not cracked or chipped. It has never been used and appears to have never been carried.

Now, the kicker. In my post in the Knife Lore forum, I referenced a similar knife that sold on Ebay a few years ago for several hundred dollars. Actually, it sold for $354.00 plus shipping.

Here is the post I made to AAPK re' that knife with some of its auction photos:

viewtopic.php?f=35&t=22846

I have compared that knife to the one I just received.

They are the very same knife. ::tu::

I just paid less than half what the knife sold for previously to get something I was outbid on in the original auction. ::ds::

What a deal on a superlative piece of utilitarian pocket cutlery.

0078, that is a sweet old knife. Looks like an 088 pattern.

Mickey, notice your little dog-leg has no handle pins. That's why it has the patent stamp. Robeson came up with a method of handle attachment that eliminated the pins.

PocketEze is nice too.
