Who's into S & M?

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.

Risner has a good selection of Queen knives with Wharncliffe blades. Check it out their Sway back selection....

I like it! I've had an interest in the Lightning Strike Wood ever since they released them. Just haven't pulled the trigger on one yet. Good looking knife!

Lots of individual character in the Lightening Strike Wood handles.

Do you know how the wood is made to look burnt & fissured ? Are there actually fissures in the surface (like crevasse in a glacier) ?

Ryan Daniels had some of these at his table in January and we talked about them a little. According to Ryan the wood starts out smooth. Then they zap it with a jolt of electricity to create the lightning strike effect.

I like it a lot and I would have bought one if he had one in a pattern that interested me.

So, is the surface all 'flat' or are there fissures going down into the wood ? In pictures it looks as though there are deep fissures but this would trap dirt & debris so perhaps it is surface scarring that looks like fissures ?

The fissures on my 01 do not appear to go any deeper into the wood than the larger areas of charred scarring. The charred fissures appear to follow some of the natural grain lines in the wood but seem fairly superficial...not like a crevasse that extends deep into ice. But, I can only tell you what I am able to observe on my particular knife's handle...I don't know if this is the case with all Lightening Strike Wood handles, YMMV.

Thanks Q. These L.S. wood handles remind me of mammoth handles. In pictures some mammoth appears to have a very uneven surface, like chicken pox on the face. But in person the mammoth surface is almost smooth, the 'pox' are not raised and the cracks have no depth. Probably this L.S. wood is similar.
Some irregularity aids with wet grip, but deep grooves, fissures would trap gunk which would rot making the knife fetid. Phun with words today !

Here's a nice one I just picked up. A Schatt & Morgan 042206 Teardrop EZ Open. ACSB (Amber Carved Stag Bone) handles.
Queen did a really nice job on the ACSB line.

That's a real beauty and the fact that it is an E/O puts it over the top for me. ::ds::
