Queen City Jack Knife 3 3/8" circa 1933-40
Queen City Jack Knife made circa 1933-40.
Has early Winterbottom Bone handles. The mark side has a center pin crack.
The main blade has no snap. Good snap on the pen blade.
Measures 3 3/8" in the closed position.
This pattern would later become Queen's barlow pattern. Notice the slight hump on the pivot bolster. This is done to line the tangs up with the bolster.
I would grade this knife as NKCA very good.
Hi and thanks for visiting my store, Hudson Valley Knives.
I use USPS 1st class mail and will send you the tracking number once your item is shipped.
Knives are graded to the NKCA standards below....
Pristine mint: Knives in this category must be flawless, and must have additional characteristics that set them apart from mint. They could have an unusually good fit for example.
Mint: This would be a knife that has never been carried, never sharpened, never used, and does not have rust problems of any kind.
Near Mint: There must be nothing wrong with a near mint knife. It should “walk and talk” and must have most of the original polish visible on the blades. Very light sharpening would be acceptable, but the blades must be full. It can have some light rust spots, but no deep rust pits. Some light carry scratches are permitted on the outside as well.
Excellent: Knives in this condition would include solid, lightly used knives. There may be a bit of blade wear (no more than 10%). Some tarnish and light pitting would be acceptable. Blades should snap well, and the tang mark should be clear.
Very Good: Knives in this category are generally fairly well used knives. There may be blade wear of up to 25%. The blades should still be sound, but one or more may be slow. The stamping should be readable, but may be faint. The handles may have cracks and wear, but shouldn’t have major chipping. The knife might also have some rust pitting and tarnish.
Good: Knives in good condition must still be useable as a working knife. Blade wear may be between 25-50%. There might be chips in the handle or blade. Blades may be slow with deep pits and rust. You should still be able to make out the maker of the knife by shield or tang stamp.
Poor: A poor knife is generally only good for parts. The blades might be less than 50%, extra lazy or even broken. Tang marks are generally barely legible, and the handles may be chipped.
