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.

According to a SMKW rep., a handful of these were built by Queen, using leftover parts from a 2-piece wildlife set produced in 1980. The original set contained one each in pearl and stag with custom blade etches. He wasn't sure of the exact number of "leftovers", but estimated it to be less then 20. IIRC, there were 200 of the sets produced. Wish I had one of those sets, too!

I'm not a big fan of toothpicks or pearl handles but I'd be proud to own that one. Nice pick-up. ::tu::

Thanks, but in this case, I didn't find it, it found me through a friend of my son. He had bought it on a trip to SMKW. First time he showed it to his friends they made fun of him for having such a "pretty" knife. He threw it in a drawer and went out and bought himself a Buck 110. :D He brought the toothpick to me on one of his trips back home. I gave him $50 and a half dozen racks of hickory smoked ribs. We were both happy.

Thanks Lyle!

Yes sir, it's about time to roll out the smoker and get it ready for warm weather, cleaned up the grill last weekend.

Here are two "Old Timers" and I'm not talking about Schrades! :lol:

The top one is a #10 with Rogers bone circa early 1960's.
The bottom one is a #9 Stockman with Winterbottom bone. Has the Crown over Q tang stamp which puts it in the 1945-55 range. This one will ride in my pocket for a while. Scary sharp and still has nice walk and talk for a well used knife.

They buried William in the old church yard, And Barbara there anigh him,
And out of his grave grew a red, red rose, And out of hers, a briar.....
They lapped and tied in a true love's knot. The rose ran around the briar.

That's a nice one for sure. Those older Queens in Winterbottom are not always easy to find.
