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

Have you ever wondered how Queen transitioned from a company that made "tools" to a company that thrived on making "collector knives"?   David Krauss, Fred Fisher and I have begun a series of articles that focuses on this, starting in the 1979s. Eventually, there will another on the 1980s.  As with any new content, we appreciate your comments or critique of this piece. Thank you!    https://gbh.929.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Queen-Cu...

Hey Bob thanks for the update!

I knew that Mr. Cooper was in the process but the community as a whole kind of kept our mouths shut until we saw some kind of announcement, not wanting to overstep and let excitement over ride reality. Now that we have an announcement from Austin WOOOOHOOOO!!!!! Let's see if I can get him to give us some kind of a heads up on what and when?

A new Historical Knife Spotlight has been posted to queencutleryhistory.com. This months topic is the series of rare pocketknives with satin-finished blades made by Queen in 1960, as a marketing experiment. Some mis-conceptions about these knives have been cleared up and detailed photos are included.

Yes Gilbert Cooper bought most of the equipment at the auction last year and will be making Schatt and Morgan knives in Ohio they will be coming out next year. Unfortunately the Queen name ended up with SMKW and they are the same standards as the rough rider knives.

Hello all, Schatt and Morgan/Queen knives have been a favorite of mine for several years. My other favorite knife is Great Eastern Cutlery.

Recently I ordered a framed picture of GEC knife labels from Traditionalpocketknives.com/C. Risner Cutlery and when it arrived, in the box was a paper stating that: "We Are Back!" Coming 2021... Schatt and Morgan Cutlery Company. Below this statement was printed: Cooper Cutlery LLC. Winchester, Ohio.

Has anyone else heard of this? I sure hope this happens!

Rare and collectible knives from S & M, Queen, Robson, CC...for...

Just thought I would let you know, looks like an older collection has come up for sale...All are in new condition in their original box unless otherwise stated.   A must see this week is the 80th Anniversary Queen knife.  It features a  Stanhope viewer displaying an image of the founders built into the knife handle!

This month's Historical Knife Spotlight on queencutleryhistory.com is focused on Queen Cutlery’s # 11, 11EO utility and # 24 slim trapper knives. At a quick glance, the patterns look essentially the same, but there are subtle and not-so-subtle differences. You will see details and photos of several of these fine knives.
