Queen City #10

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.

Latest find in the $10 bargain bin. Yes, I cleaned and polished it. I like my knives (and my trucks) shiny. Black composition (plastic) handles. Based on the tang stamp, it was made sometime between 1922 - 1945. Pocket ready.

Hi hardman.
I've got one of those, I think. Mine isn't stamped. It's 3 3/4".
How do you know what model number it is?
Nice looking knife, yours.

We know the model number by pattern, size and blade type.
The Queen Model #10 is a swelled end jack, 3 11/16" in size with a clip main and a pen secondary.
Queen also made their #18 pattern which is the same knife with a spear main.
Most of these knives were not stamped with a model number except for the years 1961-71 when Queen etched Queen Steel #10 on the main blade.
During these years, Queen did not stamp the tangs.
Queen City. My favorite! Bruno. ::tu::

Good one, Dimitri. ::tu::

Mine is a very strong, well built knife. No doubt the other two are also.
