Was the Queen name bought?

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.

I recently saw Queen City knives advertised with logo, abalone scales for $25. Has the name and rights to Queen been purchased? It is obviously produced overseas as no Queen has gone for this price for 50 or 60 years. I hate to see a classic knife go the same way that Camillus has.
The most useless thing ever is a dull knife.

SMKW bought the name.
They look like Rough Ryder patterns with a higher price.
