Queen Cutlery & Friends

Knives have been made at the factory of Queen Cutlery Company of Titusville Pennsylvania for over 100 years. It is arguably the oldest and last American Cutlery that truly continues to produce knives in the same way as they were produced there when the factory opened in 1902. The factory’s first tenant was the Schatt & Morgan Cutlery Company: Queen Cutlery Company displaced Schatt & Morgan there in 1933. Queen City Cutlery Company first began to produce knives in 1918 around the end of the First World War, incorporated in 1922, and shortened their name to “Queen Cutlery Company” in January of 1946.  Purchased by Daniels Family Cutlery Corporation on September 18, 2012

I have been AWOL for a while working on the Queen  Catalog project, which was unveiled at the Queen Show last weekend.  With catalogs digitized and loaded on the Queen historical document website, you can look at original catalog pages going back to 1947 - first catalog known..  The database now has over 7,250 knives entered and gives you a lot of information by model # or Series.  It makes no attempt to enumerate SFO knives, but it give the best detail available on regularly offered knives.  For example history of both amber and pearl handled knives shows huge production over the years - Queen could easily be called the pearl knife company!   Please check out the hisotridcal documents page and comment back to us - always looking to make this amore useful resource.

I had a great time at the Titusville Queen knife show this past weekend.  Lots of familiar faces, and a nice crowd turnout.  Ken even gave my daughter a free knife for attending the show, he's a true class act.  Thanks again to everyone that put on the show, and to the employees/management of Queen Cutlery.

Great looking knives. Queen keeps impressing me with their new ones.

Those carvers, if memory serves me right, are only made for one company.  I am not sure that they have ever had a different tang than that but we will see if we can get Queen to take a look at it for us

woohooo!  I get a little shakey everytime I think about it.  This is my favorite knife show of the year!

Picked up this carving knife recently (I smoke a pipe and sometimes try to carve one... maybe this will help! ;-) ).

By the tang stamp, it's fairly recent but I'm not sure how to date the newer stamps.
