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 don't know if anyone has seen this website before, but it seems to be a very good history on Robeson and all in one location. I looked here on AAPK and didn't see this same info, I'm not always good at that so if this is a repeat, my apologies. Here it is and I hope it helps everyone, it did me.
