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.

Got this one today, only my 3rd Robeson and as I found out a couple of years ago, some Robesons were made by Camillus and again this is what we have today. The shield melted into the Delrin is not very classy but at least it ain't gonna' fall out!::uc:: It cleaned up fairly well with a bit of Mothers and a rag, used but not completely shot. For some reason the Muskrat pattern just gets my attention.

Nice pattern. I don't think I've ever seen a Robeson Muskrat until now. I'm sure they've been around but that's my first look. I'll bet that would last a very long time and provide years of service. Cleaned up real nice too.

Fine muskrat TF! I don’t carry them often enough, but I’m with you, they appeal to me for some reason too.

I have one with Strawberry Bone handles and a "MUSKRAT" etch.
It's not a common pattern and I don't think I've ever seen one that wasn't from the post 1948 time period.
