"HI: Here is a #49 stockman. It has both a blade etching and a tang stamp of "Q steel" so would place it at 1958-1960, i believe.  This knife has winter bottom bone scales and is 4 1/4" long with all blades closed.  This…"

Old Queens

Here is a #38 old pattern i just got in the mail.  Overall 5 1/4"long.  Winter bottom bone handles.  The tang stamp would indicate that it was made prior to 1955.  After this knife was discontinued, they used the #38 pattern number for a little 3" tuxedo knife.  This knife is in pretty nice condition; i  think the blades may have been sharpened very slightly and were probably buffed.  Not bad for a 75 year old knife.…See More

Wow Duke I am flattered that you should ask me such a question  !

Alas I have to say that of all the members here I am least qualified to answer that,  I have some newer Queen knives and will buy some more ,they have a certain quality that I like even though I would not be able to put my finger on quite why.  My GEC knives over all maybe a little finer finished but I just like Queen .

Anyway there are a whole host of experienced guy's and Gal's here who could tell you about older knives, my friends Ron or Jan or John McCain , now he seems to know his stuff !  I am just a Brit who has only begun to enjoy US made knives recently.  Sorry to not be of more help ,   John B .
