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

          With Fred Fisher, Brian Guth, Ashley and Joe Mick, we have begun a new series on how Queen BOXED their knives from 1947,  now through 1980 . We will add both older and newer box treatments as this series grows.  It is based on having a broader history of Queen's products, and to provide modern collectors with information which will limit the attractiveness of "parts knives" following Queen's demise.

1947 – 1971 here:  https://secureservercdn.net/198.71.233.109/gbh.929.myftpupload.com/...

 

1972-1980 here: https://secureservercdn.net/198.71.233.109/gbh.929.myftpupload.com/...

These are first editions in a relatively untouched area of Queen History. If you have suggestions or would like to contribute, PLEASE CONTACT US  through Facebook or from the <QueenCutleryguide.com> site.

A couple people at Queen Cutlery History now have the new SMKW Queen Pilot Run mini-trapper and there is a bit of a review on the homepage, along with a lot more new content.

Fred Fisher, Brian Guth and I have posted a new article #78 hunting and Combat Knife  on Queencutleryguide.com, that shows this iconic knife in two catalog versions, and a third rare knife seem only once in over 70 cumulative years of knife collecting - a leather handle #78.  See under "Articles" --> ""knives"

We have also a numbver of files under "Special knives " for mostly new Queen and Schatt & Morgan knives that have never appeared in catalogs.  Check these patterns and if you have one NOT shown, please send it to us so we can add it to our documentation.

Bob,

Thanks for the info and for a new article to read during this time at home!

Comment by Bob Welch on April 16, 2020 at 16:01

Lots of new material has been added to queencutleryhistory.com. David Clark has yet another article on the rare Jess Crouch knife, which was produced by Schatt & Morgan around 1915 to 1920 or so. Jess Crouch was one of the officers of the cutlery. The Queen Tang Stamp Guide has been updated again as we've finally acquired a picture of the elusive "small Q" stamp used only in 1971. On the Flyers and Ads page you'll see several new sales brochures.

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.

Comment by Dan Lago on March 21, 2020 at 18:48

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!
