Here you go Trail. It appears to be nickel silver, maybe coin silver? The scales are solid slabs. It is a tight well made knife, and I would guess Boker made it.

Wow, that's a good looking knife. The big swedge and the hollow grinds make it exceptional. Pretty darn nice for a safety award.

Whitehead & Hoag didn't make pocket knives.... so Robeson must have made it on contract for them?

Robeson might have made the W&H, but it's also possible the handles were produced or sold by an independent supplier to multiple cutleries.

I've seen those handles with even different branded blades.

The knives catch my eye on Ebay because of the Robeson connection, and all of them are not Robeson marked knives.

While this one surely isn't obscure, it is old and you hardly see them anymore. Hammer/ New York Knife Co. stamps on this Barlow with bone handles. 36' to 37' stamp.

There are a few numbers I can make out on the back of the main, all I can make out is 20.
Anybody got any info on this?

to dig a little deeper into the history. ::nod::

Nice find Perry! I love the New York Knife brand and that stamp on that georgious old Barlow! Here is another New England oldie. An old Waterville knife with what I think is one of the coolest swedges and one incredible snap! I`m soooooooo tempted to carry it! but havent researched it yet to see how old it is, etc etc.
