Two of my favorite Queen City knives

Started Feb 11, 2017 0 Replies

Of all of my Queen City knifes these are two of my favorites...neither appear to have been sharpened other than the factory final sharpening. Both…Continue

Weird mother of pearl

Started this discussion. Last reply by Jan Carter Mar 17, 2016. 4 Replies

This knife has me totally baffled. I have a lot of mother of pearl handled knives but this knife displays a very "smoky" appearance that I don't think is natural. There is no apparent sharpening of…Continue

When was this made

Stamped on the smaller of the shorter of the two blades is: "W.H. Morley & Sons-Germany" This excellent condition pearl handled little knife has single snap blades. Very little, if any,…Continue

A real cutie

Here's another of my yard sale finds from years ago and one of my favorites even though I know very little other than I think it is a true "pen" knife used for sharpening quills. Both blades are…Continue

"Hi,. It has stag handles with 7 functions and measures 11-1/2" open. The pictures pretty well tell you all about this knife..  It probably had a sheath of some sort as it is one massive and heavy knife. All comments welcome to my email…"

"I recently purchased this 10-1/2" "blade bowie" style knife from a local junk store. I believe this to be a civil war period handmade knife possibly carried by a Confederate soldier, brought home and put away only to be forgotten…"

Purchased this queen knife today from a local gentleman

Posted on February 11, 2017 at 16:31 7 Comments

I have quite a few Queen knives but I'm not familiar with this one that I purchased today. The wood is exotic and the knife is marked as seen in the photos. All information would be appreciated...type of wood?, number made? When made? and reasonable fair market value?   thank you all for your help. Please address comments to my personal email address which is pithole@zoominternet.net  There is no damage or imperfections..this is reflection.…

Quite Unique and very limited

Posted on April 17, 2016 at 8:53 5 Comments

Handle material is quite often unique, beautiful and durable, or all three of these features, but I think the handle on this knife of mine "takes the cake" as far as uniqueness especially. The wood on this handle came from the bottom of one of the first oil wells drilled near my home over 140 years ago. Many of the wells were abandoned after the oil gave out and just recently within the past 5 or 10 years these wooden rods (called sucker rods), were removed from the average depth of 600 feet…

Price and Value guides

Posted on April 11, 2016 at 22:53 2 Comments

I've been a collector of American antiques for over 65 years starting at about age 13. My main interests were mechanical items, American glass and stoneware, Indian relics, early timbering tools, pocket and sheath knives including firearms. I've always had a job since that age and would buy what my savings would let me. Along these many years of buying, selling and collecting, the first thing I realized that printed guides are just that, a guide which is better used for identification than…

Sorry I missed you the other night, Don.  I usually leave my browser open, so I'm guessing the site was reporting me as being online even though I was in bed sleeping.  I've been checking if you're on whenever I hop on, but you haven't been.  Congratulations on being featured.  I've been enjoying your posts in the Queen group.
