Robeson knife opener

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 have needed one of those since 1988. Never came across one that was for sale.

I think that is probably the fourth one I’ve seen. Could be one I’m seeing for the second time, I suppose.

Very nice. They are rare.

Can you tell us the overall length of this most useful device?
