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 recently bought a Schatt & Morgan #10 Rooster Knife.  I have never seen this pattern before.  I'm very curious about the use of the two blades other than then main spear point blade.  Does…Continue

Sad indeed!

Comment by Tobias Gibson on May 8, 2018 at 10:37
It would be nice if perhaps the Pipes, Parker, or Watkins family ( or a combination there of) could see a way to revive the company. But it is a gamble for sure.

I wonder if there is any chance that the Queen/S&M names can be owned, and knives still made by an American company. Even though they wouldn't be made from the same old factory, I hope that the brand is somehow able to continue.

Dan,

Like you I appreciate the efforts the Daniels family made to retain the Queen legacy and keep it going.  I also have heard that the company was forced to pursue chapter 7 bankruptcy.  My heart breaks for all the effort time and money.  It was Ken's dream and this has to be very difficult

What a shame, such sad news.

Very sad...

Comment by Dan Lago on May 7, 2018 at 9:47

After several shows this Spring, and the sad articles in Knife Magazine in both March and April issues. Several venders were reporting direct conversations With Ken Daniels that the company was forced to pursue chapter 7 bankruptcy - I think meaning disposal of resources. Not coming back.  A very sad time for collectors and for the Daniels family, especially.  

They put a lot time. money, and heartache into the past six years.  I have no guidance for how to run a knife business.  I just want to say, they made a lot of very nice knives in those years.  I appreciate their efforts.

I just hope for a return, can't imagine life without Queen knives!

Leo,

There has been some chatter on another forum, about a return.  I do not know the people involved nor do I know how the info was obtained other than by some folks.  Ken has let me know that as soon as he knows how this will play out he will let me know.  I have shared this link with him but understand until he can  say something we just wait :(  and pray for all involved

Queen Cutlery made folding woodcarving knives for my business.  I need to find a new source so if anyone or any company is interested in providing knives, please contact me ASAP.
