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

In this month's Historical Knife Spotlight at queencutleryhistory.com we share the story of the recent discovery of an intact, late 1950's Queen knife display. The display, including 39 unused knives will soon be available for all to see at a Georgia winery.

Queen Cutlery History has just added David Clark's interview with legendary Queen collector Joe Dial. Joe recounts the early days of his collecting "career" as he travelled throughout the South in the 1970's and '80's. Along the way he acquired many unused and mint Queen knives from old displays in now forgotten small town shops. Have a listen!

Sounds good. Thank you Sir.

Tim, Thanks for the comment. The Mountain man Express is the 4.5" size and came after the John Henry Express, but used the same switchblade opening lock. It was generally quicker to open and easier to carry. More popular and around 96 different versions were made, BUT never cataloged. Brian Guth and I are working on several articles that will describe this knife. Dan

Great info Dan. Thank you.

Was the smaller 4-5/8" (Express #3?) from a older pattern as well?

Just added a very useful article on Queen John Henry EXPRESS switchblades. Brian Guth and I have put together a listing of all 18 factory-made John Henry Express knives, with a bit of history and details of how each knife was packaged. Let us know what you have to add!

This a combined effort by David Clark, David Krauss, Carl Bradshaw and myself to add more depth for Queen Collectors. We are also preparing to do an revision of the 10-page Queen Tand and Etch guide soon. If you have any issues or suggestions for improving that guide, please get in touch. Thank you, Dan Lago

The latest Historical Knife Spotlight at queencutleryhistory.com is the second installment of a series on contract knives made by Schatt & Morgan and Queen. This month's feature covers the Griffon Cutlery and Curtin & Clark knives made years ago by Schatt & Morgan. Several photos of rare knives and actual tang stamp dies and impressions are included.

Also new at QCH (and available for download) is a supplement to the Tang Stamp Guide covering Dollar Knife, Tuna Valley and Robeson.
