Perry in Wyoming County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Robeson Cutlery Company
Millard F. Robeson moved his knife company to the former Wycoff Harvester cobblestone building in 1900. A three-story addition was added to the existing structure in 1907. The Company produced world-famous cutlery products from this location until 1965. They continued to ship contracted knives until 1971, when the pocket knife division was sold to Ontario Knife Company of Franklinville, New York. The main portion of the building was torn down in 1985, when a plaza and post office were built on the site. Robeson Cutlery products are highly collectable and can be found in knife collections worldwide.
