Robeson Wood Handle Pruner

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 Wood Handle Pruner

I collect Hawkbills and Roper/copers. They're simple and honest work knives. Here's an old 'Robey. 4" closed. J.O'

That is where my love of traditional pocket knives started, watching farmers carrying and using Sheepsfoot and Lambsfoot work knives. When i got my first hunting knife, a Joseph Rodgers bunny knife i was hooked. Now a lot of my knives are Sheepsfoot and Lambsfoot. You have a couple of really nice knives that you have posted. ::nod:: ::tu:: :D

Thanks. When I started a long time ago. Pruners weren't popular. I have well over a hundred and I paid around $5 for many of them. I just really like them, even if they're well used. The curved edge is stronger and often more efficient than a straight one. Like everything else, the prices are up and they're not as easily found. I never pass one up. Nice swapping stories with you.
Ever seen one of these? It's a George Schrade "wire handle" Patented 1942. He made a whole line of scout and camp and flatware with those handles.
Interesting guy.J.O'.

Nice knives.

There is a reason that style blade was put into "Linoleum Knives".
