Queen History

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.

Queen History

Postby tinroof » Sat Jun 16, 2018 7:41 pm

We all have said, "Just never know what you may find at the bottom of the barrel." A few years back that was what an old girlfriend said when she saw me unexpectably. ::facepalm::
Stopped at a yard sale today, they had no knives but I did find a QUEEN distribution catalog -- or at least parts of one (14 pages in a folding cover). Nice pictures with some description of knives, and an order sheet with prices. It is titled as "CATALOG 50", but no date of issue. I hope somebody may have a clue of issue date or tell me what to look for to answer my own question. Thanks

Just found a recent post on news about Queen. It had a dialoge box going to Historical Catalogs. It lists Catalog 50 being from 1972-78, so I think that answers my question. Thanks to all anyway.

It looks like you found the answer yourself.

Yes, guess I only thought I had a question. Thanks anyway, guess it is at least something to say, " I have an original print copy of the catalog."
