Old Queen Cutlery Co. Knives

The Queen Cutlery Company has been manufacturing knives in Titusville Pennsylvania for over 100 years. The company opened its factory in 1902 and continues to produce knives in the same way now as they did in their earliest years.

Old Queen Cutlery Co. Knives

Postby Miller Bro's » Thu Nov 26, 2009 1:44 am

I see we have a new forum!

I have always liked the old Queen Cut. Co. folding and fixed blade knives.

They have been under valued for years.

Here is a nice stockman`s knife with winterbottom bone handles ::drool::

This one is stamped Queen Steel, 1960`s era

If you have any to add post them here ::nod::

Nice knife M.B.

This one isn't as good, but not bad. Immitation Winterbottom, seen some use, circa 1950's.

I'll help out by showing the only Queen I have left...It's 5 1/4" with winterbottom bone and matchstriker pull. Stamp date's it 1932 - 1955...hope some Queen collectors can help me narrow that down some.

Jack,

Nice knife!


Bob,

Not an authority on dating Queen knives but, with that matchstriker pull, I would say 1932-40 ::nod::

The winterbottom bone handles are gorgeous on that knife ::drool::

What era is that one from?

Do you have a pic with the blades open?



Thanks,

Here is a few more pics. The knife was made sometime between the 1960's to 1990's, after some changes were made to the pattern. And for some reason it's not letting the the other pics but here is one. I'll try again later.

Thank's MB, I was thinking prewar because of the pull, I had been told they quit using that
color bone in the 40's...It's one solid knife, tight with great snap...fit & finish as good as Case.

Don't have much in the way of Queen for some reason,but this folder I thought was unique.Sort of a TL-29 type knife;have no idea what era it is.I've owned it for probably 25 years.
The kitchen knives I bought at a yard sale several years ago for a buck apiece.Figured I couldn't go too far wrong at that price.

According to Queen Cutlery Collectors "History of Queen Cutlery Tang Stamps" About 1945-1955. Very nice knife.
