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.

I cannot access my 646 right now, but its high number makes me wonder if they are not MasterCraft or Perma-Lube knives with the Oiless Bronze Bearings.

It's worth taking a look.

Nice one, Harold. ::tu:: The 646 and the 248 have me puzzled.
With bright light and loupe I can only see the usual steel half stops of tangs in the well. Blades open.
No bronze.

No worries.
There is a better way but I can't prompt you through it. I can barely use my spoon. :mrgreen:
