Queen #10 - No Tang Stamp

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.

Queen #10 - No Tang Stamp

Post by EC_Snooker » Sat Jul 02, 2022 7:58 pm

I recently acquired a new to me #10. I don't have many Queen knives but my interest in them has grown over last year or so. I've researched tang/etch details for the Queen manufactured knives here and on a couple other sites mentioned here. Such great info folks have put together. Am I correct in assuming that my recently acquired #10 was manufactured between 1961-1971? No tang stamp with only the blade etched. I'm also assuming the winterbottom scales are derlin. This is my first #10 and I now understand why some folks rave about this particular pattern. Since I know many here like pictures I'm attaching a few of this particular knife.

You are correct. 1961 to 71.
The handles are Delrin.

I used to collect the #10 a few years back. Here's a pic that you might like.

bdev - thanks for details! interesting you posted that pic because I believe that may have been one I stumbled on a while back that peaked my interest in the #10's....

treefarmer - it's indeed a nice specimen but it does appear to have been slightly used. It is in very nice condition though. I'll pocket it from time to time regardless.

I'm definitely going to keep my eyes open for other #10's.

BDev, great collection! I was sort of expecting a barehead in that pattern... Great knife to collect because it was such a useful knife!

I did have a barehead but purchased it after that picture.
Queen Cutlery Guide did an article about two of my #10's. This barehead and a Ben Rocklin SFO tang stamp.
Here's the link....
