Robeson 62656 Jack

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.

Robeson 62656 Jack

Postby JohnR » Tue Jun 19, 2018 12:12 pm

Picked up this nice Robeson 62656 3 3/4" jack this week, if I'm dating the tang stamps correctly I'm thinking 1920's to 1930's. Blades have most likely been cleaned.

Very nice. Good bone on that one. ::tu::

The 056 was a handful of knife.

In all the years of collecting, I was never able to obtain a mint or near-mint example of that pattern made before WWII. I do have one, but it's not great and I did find a post war strawberry bone example. They don't even look like the same knife, really. The strawberry knife is significantly less beefy.
