something different

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.

something different

Queen frame, Primble shield and OK tang stamp. Mid 1990's I believe.
That color will catch anyone's attention :-)

Does the scales have an on/off switch? Those are bright. ::nod::

yes they are some type of acrylic. I've heard rumors of other colored scales from time to time but never saw another .
I had a fella offer me anything he had on his table. My eyes lit up when I saw the 2 BP cannons. My wife said "NO!! You'll end up in jail" hehehehehe

That's an interesting knife for sure. Something that hasn't been mentioned is how the OK tang stamp is on a #44 Queen knife. It had to be from the period when Ontario Knife Company was owned by Queen beginning in 1967 according to the Queen History notes. ::shrug:: I haven't seen where the Primble shield ties in , yet. ::hmm::
I have an Old Hickory 2 blade folding hunter, the blade is etched ONTARIO 611, the tang stamp is stamped OK, just like the OP knife, but it is a Queen #39 just with different handles and stamp. Kinda like GMC and Chevy trucks used to be years ago, same truck just a different hood ornament basically.
It is not only an interesting combination but as everyone has said it is real "looker"! ::tu::

I was told the OK stamp was for purchase by employees. (shrug)

Here's the Old Hickory/Ontario 611 made by Queen that I mentioned earlier:
Plain handles on this should have made this a economy priced knife, maybe.  Can't see the OK tang stamp in the picture but it's there.
