Old Queen Cutlery Co. Knives

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.

Do you guys think the #10 knives with steel liners and pins were made during wartime due to rationing of copper and brass?

Found this tiny (2.5” closed) little Queen #7 senator pattern. Looks hardly used. Nice Winterbottom scales.

That's a very nice example of a #7. Nice find.
Probably early 1950's.

Bruno, I just saw this on the other thread and drooled all over my keyboard. That old Winterbottom is just something special in my book! I'd have to tune that one up and carry it for a day or two.

If you really want to see this pattern in all its glory in mint condition, go to the thread below and go to page 3. See the 10th post.
