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.

Got this one a few days ago and failed to post her in the Queen forum.
After cleaning most of the rust from the steel bolsters I have made friends with the ol' gal! I carried her all day today and used her several times and am well pleased. As I was reading the forum, I realized the Queen City with the steel bolsters and steel frame was probably produced during WWII, so she is probably only a year or so older than me. :)
When this one breaks over from the half stop, you better not have a finger in the way!

Those Queen City knives are fine knives. I wish they had bone covers.
The spring on mine is just about inconvenient.
You're right, you must have your fingers clear on closing.
