Queen Cutlery & Friends

Knives have been made at the factory of Queen Cutlery Company of Titusville Pennsylvania for over 100 years.

Awesome Pick... 12/21/20

"I've got a couple of those also, it's a fine knife. I love it because it's a larger, equal-end knife. Good find!"

"Thanks to these two GEC knife experts, Jan Carter and Joan Mae Howard from Great Eastern Cutlery, we now have some further info about the #23 oak leaf knife posted about a few days ago: -- In 2006 GEC did 81 knives with a Smooth White Laser Handle.…"

About Me
I've been collecting GEC since 2008. The quality is what really impresses me. Usually my EDC line-up is between a Tidioute #53 and a NKCA 1981 Queen equal end knife I picked up on Ebay. The Tidioute has some strong patina, but looks great!
Interests
Knives, Harley Davidson, Grandkids, reading, sports, Faith and family.
Other Hobbies
My grandkids are a joy to be with! Motorcycle trips are something me and my wife do as often as we can. Still working, but retirement isn't far off.
