Queen #25 JET KINFE Toothpick Auto 1940’s to 50’s

Post by knifeaholic » Tue Aug 03, 2021 12:19 am

This is the famous Queen Cutlery “Jet” knife, #25 toothpick.

Made from the late 40’s to the mid 50’s.

Jigged black handles have no cracks or damage.

Full blade, original finish and edge - never sharpened.

The blade action works strongly, blade has slight side play when open.

This knife has two issues that I believe are common with this knife in general.

#1 – the blade sometimes “peeks” above the handle when you close the blade – this can be corrected if you press the blade down and move the button back and forth a bit.
#2 – the sliding “safety” slider seems to do nothing – the pushbutton works and propels the blade out with the slider in either position.

Holy moly mate! You know how rare these are... :shock: And in mighty fine condition to boot.

The snagger is going to be one happy collector, that's for sure.
