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.

FWIW: I'm particularly partial to the Keystone Series I (1991). All the Keystone Series are top quality knives, but I think S&M really hit a grand slam home run that year...especially with the 042 151 Mini Trapper (which is probably my number one favorite Mini-T of all time!) ::nod::
Thank you for that, i will keep an eye out for any of them. You have a good weekend. ::tu:: ::handshake::

Loving your knife Q, I agree, quality got inconsistent but when S&M were good they were very, very good even towards the end.

That is the huge downside of buying online, you cannot get to see and feel what you are purchasing. I saw a S&M online the other day, when you had a really close look you could see some gaps, and you do not know if that is the one you are getting, or if that is one they pulled out for a photo shoot. ::paranoid::

I read some where that the later S&M knives that come in a white box are no where near as good as the knives that come in a brown box. Any one out there experienced in this Brand have a view on this ?

Fat City, your scout is looking very good to me. Lots of appeal.

As a general rule, that is very often true; however, that doesn't necessarily mean the later year (white box) S&Ms are junk...the quality just seems to be inconsistent so it's hit and miss. I have some DFC era knives that are every bit as nice as the pre-DFC era S&Ms, but I am less inclined to buy a S&M when I see "DFC" on the tang stamp.

BTW--Daniels Family Cutlery is the maker of Tuna Valley and Excelsior knives, both of which are super high quality production knife brands that make limited runs. You can check them out here;

Here's my latest S&M pick up: 3½" Dogleg Jack/Mini Trapper "Dollar Knife Co." (it came in a brown box!)

Q, loving the color, probably inordinately because of my Irish heritage.

Thanks Quick Steel. Introduced her to the motley Schrade crew and she still got her highly polished nose in the air ::groove::
