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 pulled up the photo of my 765 and interestingly, it did not have a shield.

And given the bone jigging, I think it preceded the one HAK1911 posted.

I think I have sold this knife, so I probably shouldn't post its photo.

Its new owner is an AAPK member.

Here is a knife i just won on ebay from "George", a 3 5/8 Robeson Shuredge Swell End jack, # 62629. Used and pen blade is down quite a bit but a pretty good knife for $45. I like used knives especially those that have never been 'cleaned' and have good snap and no play like this old Robeson.
Likely a 1930's vintage ? Does worm groove give any indication of date range ?

Very nice, Roland. ::tu::

George is a good seller. I trust him. Met him in 1997 in Waterbury.

Tom Kalcevic says 1911 - 1921 for that particular tang stamp.

I do tend to use his dates. He did the research. They may not be totally accurate. I mean, who knows, really?

So called "Worm Grooved " bone is pre-WWII and probably pre-1940.

Thanks for the posts. And thank you Charlie for the info on dates and the worm groove bone. I am surprised that more collectors did not bid for this one. Did it fly under their radar ? or are most holding out for an unused example ? Perhaps i am mistaken but i think $45 for this knife is rather low. Robeson, Swell End, and bone are all desirable.

If it was mine, I would not offer it for $45.00.

Found these two Robeson's at a Trade Days today. I have seen a couple on this site of the silver knife. I agree with some other posts that is was most likely given to Robsson's employees. This one has the name of F.C. McMurty engraved on the back side. If I read the stamps correctly (please correct me if I'm wrong) The Nickle Silver one dates back to 1916 - 1939 and the 2 blade pen knife dates back to 1910 - 1921.

Found my first Robeson at a garage sale today. Says Roberson shuredge USA with a number 222030 on the blade. So if I've researched right 1941-1964 range?

The Safety First knives were marketed to any industry or company that wished to use them. I have seen them with corporate names on the back side.

Assuming your electrician's knife has the word "SHUREDGE" in block letters, not cursive, the approximate dates are 1940 - 1964, according to Tom Kalcevic in Knives Can Talk!.
