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.

The “search” capability here on AAPK is your friend. search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&keywords=Sampson

You can find the search function on the upper left of this page under Quick links. To find the information about Fred Sampson, after opening the search function I typed in “Sampson” and hit submit. Then when I got back pages of posts with Sampson, not all of them related to Fred Sampson, while still in the pages about Sampson I typed “Fred” into the little box that says “Search these results. See the link I posted to find the resulting posts containing Sampson. Type “Fred” into the box and hit the little magnifying glass icon to limit your search to posts containing Fred Sampson. ::handshake::

I would had to have pled guilty for not knowing the name Fred Sampson about 5 minutes ago. :) Fred Sampson, a master cutler. I saw his name in several spots on a Queen information site. Ain't the internet amazing! If I could only retain all that I read.

I didn’t know who Fred Sampson is either. While being a master cutler is impressive, it doesn’t by itself mean you’re a well known source of information. Or even want to be. So maybe that’s the answer to the OP question. ::shrug::

Over the years, I have run into Fred at Titusville shows and he is always more than happy to answer inquiries. Really a great source of information!
While master cutler he had his own stamp and made some terrific folders!

Sure you're not thinking of Fred Fisher? He set up at the Queen show in Pleasantville for many years and was the Queen expert.

this is one of Fred's big folding hunters. He told me he made less than 20 of them. At one time I had 10 of them and gave most away to kids and family. I think one or 2 had ebony scales.
