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.

Awhile back, there was some discussion about this on AAPK. I just spent the better part of the last hour trying to dig it up because I can't remember exactly what the answer was. All I can remember is that it came up when jerryd6818 posted his S&M Coles Wharncliffe Whittler, but I can't recall which thread it was in.

Would it have anything to do with the Coles branded Whittler? Perhaps named after the original?

Thank you.
I will have to work on that. That's my only current family picture at the moment.

Very nice S&M displays, Gary...you got some real classics there.

I used to have a lot more S&M knives, but I've had to thin the herd to pay other bills. Nevertheless, this is one that I'm not likely to ever part with. This old gal is a pre-Queen S&M Wharncliffe Half-Whittler with some sweet old bones. Still has great walk & talk, too. A very well-built old knife. Yup, this one's a keeper for sure.

Hi Q,
That is one fantastic looking knife and definitely a keeper.
I found what I believe is your knife in the No. 2 S&M catalog reprint. The handles might be a bit different but it looks like the same pattern. Pattern number 2156. S&M called the handles Imitation Stag.

It certainly looks like you nailed it, Bruno...pattern #2156...always good to know such details...I'll make a note of that in my files for future reference. Thanks for doing the research. ::tu::

Although these two aren't nearly as old as my Wharncliffe Half-Whittler, they are a couple other sweet Schatts that survived the cull and are also ones I consider keepers. They both have interior Mammoth Ivory handles. The the "Custom Shop Made" blade etch and the acorn shield on the Wharncliffe Trapper are fairly unique. I don't know how often S&M used an acorn shield on their knives, but based on my observations, it wasn't very often. The COA that came with that one says it is 1 of only 2 made.

The Teardrop/Bomber Jack isn't a pattern I collect, in fact, it's the only one I have like it in my entire collection. But, I just couldn't resist that gorgeous Mammoth Ivory...absolutely love that stuff.

This is the one recently sent to me by Tommy (carmillus). Ain't she a beaut? It was very generous of him and I just love it.

Risner had (and maybe still does have) these for $25. How can you pass that up? Cute and stag to boot, I just had to have one. Others may have shown one but this one is mine.
