#41L Oar Carver Honey Amber Carved Stag Bone - Qty 1
#41L Oar Carver Smooth Black Cherry Delrin - Qty 2

In addition to the Queen's I have several other wood carving tools and sets.
Sets include:
Old Forge Whittlin Fun (NIB)
Rough Rider WoodWorking Set RR641

Hoping I can get some help from this group as to their worth so I can post them to my AAPK Store with reasonable prices.
Thanks,
Bob

Great group you picked up. They are great knives. I've had a couple and still have one. D2 steel I think. I have seen them more that $50 and less than $100 but that was when they were still available. Good luck with them. Looks like a great variety of handle material. ::tu::

Thanks,
I'm good with regular knives, but these are a specialty knife and there is very little info available on them as they are still in the original boxes.

I've not seen a Queen OAR CARVER before. (I lead a sheltered life) Are all of the Queens marked that way equipped with specialty carving blades? The one you have open doesn't look like it has standard canoe blades. ::hmm:: Heading for the world wide web.... look what I found:https://iknifecollector.com/group/queen ... der-series
There are a bunch of them for sale on the web, that should help establish an average value.

Not all of the carving blades are marked as Oar Carver. The #51 carver is based on the mini trapper frame and only has 1 1 1/2 inch D2 steel whittling blade.

The Oar Chip Carver 06L is a larger teardrop based knife with a single liner locked blade.

The 41L Single Blade Locking is based on the Mini Hunter frame and has 1 locking blade

The Oar Carver Version I is similar to Version 2 below, but has 2 blades of the same size.

The canoe style knife is actually a Oar Carver Version II with the Jig Black Cherry Handle. It has 2 blades of different sizes.

Wow! Those are some great shaped blades to carve with. Can't wait to see them posted to your store. I'm definitely interested.
