Queen steel #11B

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.

It makes no sense for the Queen factory to grind off the tang stamp of a "second" but leave the blade etch. And, if the factory had wanted to remove a tang stamp, they could do a heck of lot better job than that!

I refuse to underestimate the stupidity of other people's use of power tools...

Q's seconds were marked with a DU stamp. Suppose it meant defective unit.

After Daniels took over they also used EDC as a mark for seconds. ::tu::
