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

Nice article by David Clark on John Schatt's punching tool - When you look at catalogs you see Queen appears not to have changed this tool ever, while offering it in different sizes in different patterns for essentially 110 years! 

      You can see in #37ballon  - 1958 at 4" closed;  

       In 1977 in jigged delrin and black delrin as #38 (B) at only 3..25" (catalog 50)         closed;

       and in 2004 as #49 horseman at 4.25 closed in CSB and Birds eye maple;  

        And finally, a picture of 6 teardrop with a punch in the company's last year of production at 3.75" closed.  The most recent one looks like the sharp tip is rounded a bit, and as David Clark comments, the bases of the blades might be modified to fit the larger or smaller pattern, but they sure look similar.  Used this kind of tool on boy scout knife and victorinox swiss army - Worked very well - why chane it.

David Clark has written an interesting new article about 3 very rare Schatt & Morgan knives which feature a unique punching tool, patented in 1908. The story with photos appears on the home page of Queencutleyhistory.com, in the Historical Knife Spotlight. There is also a link to the complete article, with patent documents, on the Cutlery Articles page.

Russell, You will find information on a vast array of Queen knives at queencutleryhistory.com. They appear in the various catalogs on the site and there are photos and descriptions of 5 different #82 knives in the Knife Library. In addition, as Dan Lago has mentioned, queencutleryguide.com has catalog summaries of this and other Queen knives.

Russell West,  The #82 is shown in many Queen catalogs - Here is a link to summarize those listings. https://queencutleryguide.com//wp-content/uploads/2019/11/Model-82-...

It has been made with many handle materials and steel over the years. You can look at old catalogs with the page numbers in the guide above by searching Queenhistory.com , for a set of digitized catalogs,     These two websites provide a lot of information on older Queen Cutlery and Queen City knives .  If you are seeking other maker's knives I am not that strong - I suggest other groups on this site or "Allabout pocketknives.com" -  And I suggest most will want to see a good picture of the overall knife and the tang stamp. Have fun!

Where is the best place to get identification and or the most information for an old I believe #82 Queen fixed hunting knife? Also, what about other knives, is there a routine for getting help on identifying older different makers knives ? I have been collecting pocket knives & fixed blades for over 40 years, just not a heavy collector, just some older and unusual knives. Thanks for any help in advance.

Thank you.  I go there so much for research!  The site is growing and doing fantastic!

Several new features have been added to queencutleryhistory.com since the site launched in October, 2019. Photos and descriptions of more than 50 vintage knives have been added throughout the Knife Library. Past Historical Knife Spotlights are now archived on a new page in the Historical Documents section. We have added a page with links with to other cutlery resources on the web, and the new feature Collector Questions & Comments appears further down on the homepage.
