Another old used Queen, a real prize to me

Another old used Queen, a real prize to me

Post by treefarmer » Mon Jun 25, 2018 10:52 pm

I always enjoy each new acquisition no mater if it is NIB or just new to me, but honestly I enjoy most of all, the older ones that can be cleaned up a bit, sharpened, fondled and actually carried and used.
Today such a Queen was in our mailbox. This one really rings my bell! I've cleaned it a bit with Mothers and touched the blades up and am pleased beyond measure. It is a real HOK. It is a Queen #19 ('58-'60) with real Winterbottom bone handles, the blades are not full and the clip is a bit short but I can live with this one. It also has the proverbial gator characteristic, snap! It is the result of a trade with member just bob.

Very nice TF! I have a yellow Delrin handled queen with carbon steel blades. I really like it. I think the Queen 19 frame is my favorite Trapper.

Thanks for the kind words concerning this fine old Queen, fellers! ::handshake::
My main knife during deer season has for years been an old #39 with the Imitation Winterbottom handles, when I realized what the real Queen Winterbottom bone was I, as they say in proper circles, smitten. :lol:

Amen to liking old knives. I get way more excited finding an old knife that is still in decent shape. Not too many new knives really thrill me. I have a few old Ka-Bars and a few old Case trappers that I really like. That's a nice one. ___Dave
