As far as I recall, that was a promotional knife made by Queen for Irish Spring soap. I do not know the details as to how they were given out. Simil;ar to the "Prince Albert" Schrade knives.
Makes some sense - if you are old enough you can recall the Irish Spring commercials where the guy would pull out a pocketknife and cut a bar of the Irish Spring soap in half - then a closeup shot to show the special ingredients in the soap.
