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.

Those Robesons are eye catchers. :D

Nice clean up on you new Robeson, Mike.

Is there a number on the back of the tang?

I never could find a number. If there was one.... it's gone now.

Mike,
I've got this knife that is similar to yours. Mine is 3 3/8" closed.

Yours is an older and smoother knife.
If I can describe yours as a tear drop jack I think I can date yours at 1922-1939.

I'm not sure where to date mine. Probably in the 60s some where.
No numbers on mine either.

Lots of pin spinner malfunction. ::woot::
