A Pair Of Queens.

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 like both of them! The older Queens always get a second look from me. ::tu::

Thank you TF. Any way of telling the year(s) these came about?
Is it the tang stamp design? Is it the graphics on the blades?
Or is it a combination of the two? Inquiring minds want to know. :D

The #9 was made circa 1961-71 (no tang stamp). The #16 was made 1973-75.
