Robeson mop

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 mop

Postby edge213 » Mon Dec 17, 2018 1:59 pm

I think the number on the tang is 723810. Very hard to read.
Any help with that Mr. Noyes?

722310 is a 2 3/4" crown pen knife with pearl handles. I see the ruler but can't really tell what the actual closed length is.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

I agree, probably a 722310.

Can you describe the master blade tang stamp?

Measurement is closer to 3 than 2 3/4.

Main tang stamp:
ROBESON
? (maybe Shuredge)
ROCHESTER

Without "N.Y." after "ROCHESTER", that would date the knife 1922 to 1939.
