Is this a Queen?

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.

I believe you're right Charlie. Made by Queen.

Bruno, I checked with SMKW, where I purchased the Col. Coon canoes a few years back, and the lady I spoke to confirmed that they were made by Queen. She told me that the Colonel Coon knives currently offered in their catalog are made in the USA but she wasn't sure who makes them. Any ideas? Bear & Son maybe?

Below is a Robeson canoe and there is no doubt that it was made by Queen....it has the Queen tang stamp on the back side of the master blade.

Could be Bear & Son or even Utica. I'm sure someone here on the forum knows. Why don't you post a question on the Col Coon forum?

If I recall, I posted something similar here after seeing some on eBay and I think it was believed to be Bear.

I've had some varied levels of quality with Bear MGC/Bear & Son products. There is no doubt that they are capable of making some fine knives yet I have some that should never have gotten past the QC department. I believe the Keen Kutter canoes that I have were made by Bear and they are not very well made. I also have a Moore Maker liner lock that was made by Bear that is as fine a knife as you'd ever want. Go figure....

Can anyone tell me with reasonable certainty if these knives were made by Queen for Ka-Bar? I contacted Ka-Bar and the best they could tell me was that it might be Blue Grass Cutlery, Camillus, or Queen. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
