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

Rick,

As they are at SHOT it may take me a day or so to get an answer but I have asked Ryan.

Comment by Railsplitter on January 18, 2017 at 18:12

My apologies if this is not the right place to ask.

Does anybody know if Queen will be at the Gateway Area Knife Show on January 28th?

The Knife Show Schedule on the Queen website states that Queen will be there only on January 29th but it looks like it might be a typo.

Anybody know if they will be there both days?

Thanks.

Rick T.

You'd think a high quality reproduction like this they'd want to take credit for, but maybe Northwoods wanted the kudos. I wish they'd have at least put a date on it to better track it. I lose track of the different makers. I thought Northwoods, like Tidioute, was a subsidiary of GEC, so I thought GEC was the maker at first. Why bring Queen into it?

Comment by Carl Bradshaw on January 10, 2017 at 10:17

I have heard that as well Dan. Queen has had their fingers in quite a few different names over the years, but they only really take credit for Queen, Schatt & Morgan, and Robeson.  But they've contributed to Winchester, Case, Case Classic, Moore Maker, Cripple Creek, Colonel Coon, BlueGrass, and probably many more that I can't remember.

Yes, I would not be surprised at the 250 price - it is a truly beautiful knife, and a very serious piece of equipment. And, I would be surprised if was as big as 100 pieces - Your is only the second one I've seen in 10 years. I got mine at a sale, and the guy wanted something before the show ended - and I got lucky.  Not sure if my kids will want my knives, but I have determined not to sell.  Too sad to watch them all leave, and I figure if they wait longer to sell them, they will eventually get more than I can selling now.  Document, show off, everything I can do to convince them of the value of what I own, even if they don't like knives - it will be their problem - I am collecting - they will have to deal with it.  Best luck in deciding.

I think Queen has always been shy about discussing private label knives - I don't understand business, but I have heard they only put their own name on about half of what they produce-- who knows?

Yeah, the stag is amazing! So detailed and rich and gnarly! Great action like you said - nice half stop, and I love how thick the blade is. It's the best knife in my collection and a real beast. There's no scratches or marks on it, but I'm at least the second owner and I didn't get it with the box, so I have no idea how it looked mint. I'd love to hang onto it, but it's one of those I can't bring myself to carry and my kid has no interest in knives, so I figure I should just sell it to someone who can appreciate it. I've seen the same knife on AAPK and KnivesShipFree for $250. I can't find one on the Bay. If you got yours for $125 I'd consider that a great deal! Odd that Queen doesn't just come out and say, "Yeah we made those." Some sort of licensing snafu?

Comment by Dan Lago on January 9, 2017 at 18:26

I have been told by Queen informally that they did make this knife- but not the edition size?. I have one of these from a several years back -- I paid 125, and glad to get it - It is a very nice knife with the little Scagel touches and the massive stag. The action is especially smooth - very tight. 

  To be honest, your photos show such great detail, I think your knife shows a bit more handling, little loss of polish compared to the knife I own.   The box was a white plastic hard case, quite nice, with a green cloth bag inside.  Best of luck in keeping it or selling.

I was about to put this up for sale recently and was wanting to double check my facts. It's a Northwoods Scagel #8 Grand Daddy Barlow with sambar stag 4 7/8" closed. There's no date on the tang, just Northwoods Gladstone Michigan USA. I believe it was made by Queen in very limited numbers (100?). Any info that you could share to help me decide on a fair price would be appreciated.
