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.

That's a model 10 Heavy Jack. Measures 3 5/8" and has black composite handles. Made circa 1937-45.
The model 10 had a clip main. The model 18, a spear main.

The model 10 is my favorite Queen to collect. Was made in black composite, winterbottom bone, Delrin and Roger's bone.

I have an old Queen like that but mine is not stamped with any model number and it is just shy of 3 3/4". Actually 3 23/32"
Both blades have half stops. Mine has slightly different composition covers.

That one would be a pleasure to clean up!
Doesn't look like there is much metal missing on either blade.

The blades are full and have tremendous snap! :shock:

Almost 3 3/4" ( which also translates to 3 6/8") is about 3 5/8". Queen actually measured it at 3 11/16".

Check this one out. Got it from Steve Pfeiffer / knifeaholic.
It's a Ka-Bar Jack made by Queen ( I believe it is but I'm no expert - still researching it ). It's a pattern 18 which is the same as the 10 pattern but with a spear main.
This knife is the same as the Queen City knives in this thread with a slight difference in the bolster.

I heard from a few KA-BAR collectors and this knife was NOT made by Queen, as I thought. It's really close but not a Queen.


Has black composite smooth handles and is all steel. No brass liners or pins.

The last pic of the tang stamp was taken with my new USB microscope.
Check out this thread....

Thanks.
You're gonna love the microscope. Takes pics as well as video. You can go full screen if needed and it's not that big so it won't get in the way. Measures about 5" wide, 6.5" deep, 7' high ( The whole unit, not just the microscope).

If your tablet has a USB port, you're all set.
But.....the software installation requires a CD/DVD drive.

These do not fold and are not mint, but a neat set
