Queen Cutlery History

The Queen Cutlery Company has been manufacturing knives in Titusville Pennsylvania for over 100 years. The company opened its factory in 1902 and continues to produce knives in the same way now as they did in their earliest years.

At queencutleryhistory.com Queen Cutlery’s Heavy Duty Jacks are in our Spotlight this month. These sturdy folding knives have their roots in the Queen City era (before World War II) and are anchored by the ubiquitous # 10 pattern. Sharing the same frame as the # 10 are the # 18 which has been referred to as both a “Heavy Duty Jack” and a “Spear Point Special”, as well as the # 40 “Heavy Duty Screwdriver”.

Yes, thank you for your regular posts in this thread. I always enjoy reading the spotlight articles and looking at the photos of knives from one of my favorite brands. ::tu::

This month’s Historical Knife Spotlight at queencutleryhistory.com is focused on some very rare knives which were made well over a century ago: the Schatt & Morgan Gowanda knives. Produced only from 1897 to 1902, before S&M moved to Titusville, many of these knives formed the inspiration for the Schatt & Morgan knives of recent years.

Every one of the Black Box Winchester knives I've owned were extremely well built, solid knives with super strong snap.
