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

I will be hosting the IKC chat this Wednesday evening, talking about the history of the Tuna Valley brand for the last 100+ years!!! Many of these knives were made in the Queen factory.  Please attend if you are interested.

Did you every wonder about the origins of Queen's distinctive Burnt Orange knife handles? The new Knife Spotlight at queencutleryhistory.com features recollections from Fred Sampson, retired master cutler. He tells us the first batch was very nearly a disaster. The featured spotlight is also available for download from the Cutlery Articles page.

10 or 12 years ago the knife found me, I researched it on the web, Cytemp and the connection to Queen was found but the knife I could never find it's connection, and It is so strange that when I joined this group, that the top discussion was what I had searched for!, Amazing how things sometime just fall together, Thanks to Dan for his research and help IDing this SFO Queen knife!
