From Better Days

Postby Quick Steel » Fri Jan 12, 2018 9:30 pm

Given yesterday's unfortunate news about Queen, I am especially glad I have some of Queen's work from 12 to 14 years ago. I especially like the Queen stockman which is almost elegant in its fit and balance.

Two nice knives. Thanks for sharing.

I too had some very nice knives by Queen made in the 1990's and 2000's. Mostly S&M keystone series knives which were superb. I sold them all off to help fund my pre-1970 Queen collection (and help pay for my newest project, a 1978 Triumph Spitfire ::dang:: ).
I still do have my Queen ACSB collection which I believe was one of Queens best series. Their #06L Teardrop and #69 Straight jack were a few of their best efforts. I only wish they would have made the 06L Teardrop without a liner lock. They did make other Teardrops without the lock but the blade type was different.
Queen Cutlery. My favorite! Bruno. ::tu::

These two were both issued in celebration of Schrades 95th Anniversary in 1999. We have lost a lot. :(

Indeed we have.

Some great knives, QS! I have the #26 in that same buffalo horn (love the white streaks in that knife) with D2 and I really like it.

I had no idea there were bone slenderinos! Add it to the "to be accumulated" list... ::pace::
