Who's into S & M?

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.

It was going real reasonable on eBay ($50) and I snagged it quick, not paying a whole lot of attention to the pattern. My brain must have somehow popped out of gear. :roll:

Thanks. I had to build drawers in order to hold my collection. 5 drawers and counting (not all S&M's, Queen, mostly Keystones, and other brands.). The way I'm buying knives, I'll need to build a few more. ::tu::

Nice deal on that sunfish. Well worth what you paid.
Risner sells that knife for 120 bucks. Here's the link so you can get the specs on your knife.
Note: Risner states that it's 3" closed but I believe it should be 3 5/8".

It's a series 12 Keystone from 2002. I believe the keystone shield is Mother Of Pearl.

You are correct, the shield is MOP and the covers are Cape Water Buffalo horn. I remembered where it is and measured it. It is 3-5/8" closed. This is from the S&M 100th anniversary set. I have a few from the Keystone series.

Re: S&M vs. The Bear

It was just about two weeks ago that I posted my satisfaction with S&M. This may have brought about some bad luck. Recently I have been accumulating scout/camping multiblades. I received three from S&M. All were fine looking knives: excellent materials; excellent finish in most respects. Unfortunately the fit was disappointing in two of the knives. This was immediately apparent from their really excessive blade rub.
One knife, the best of the three, was adequately sharp out of the box. The other two were not. In fact one knife gave no evidence of having been sharpened at all. I have never received a blade like this before. Forget about cutting paper; it might be used as a butter knife providing the butter was soft. Final tally: one knife was excellent; two were very disappointing. These defects would not be acceptable on knives costing less than half of the S&Ms.

Speaking of "less than half," I ordered a scout knife from Bear MGC. To my surprise I was very pleased with the knife. F&F were very good. Sharpness was okay. If it had a bail, this is the knife I would choose to give to a scout.

Plastic surgical enhancements. ::barf:: ::barf:: If that's what I was looking for, I'd just go buy myself a blow-up doll and skip all the drama. :mrgreen:

Edit: Oops. This thread is about Schatt & Morgan. This is the last one I bought. I like the lines. The fit and finish is good. But the main blade feels "gritty" when opening and closing it.

Many of my S&Ms also have a "gritty" pivot on the main blade which is completely unaffected by oil/lubricants. I wonder why that is?

This Swell Center Trapper has a nice Spear/Wharncliffe combination, and I think the geometry of the frame & stag scales is pretty cool too.

I'm not sure when it was made. I won it in a raffle last year. I know it was a SFO for Derrick Bohn from Knives Ship Free.
