Who's into S & M?

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.

In 1997 the S&M Blues were a captivating set. Here's one that followed me home (Didn't get all the mineral off the pile side photo):

That's a 29 I need to add to my pile. I particularly like the threaded bolsters on it. Very nice.

That is a fine lookin' knife, even with "mineral" on it! ::poke::
Are the numbers different on the S&M knives and the Queen knives of the same pattern?

I can't speak for all of Queen's patterns but the English Jacks of both brands are all #29's.

Thanks Gents,
Trying to stay out of the reflection on the blade photo does not allow the true blue bird blue color of that English jack to pop. All the 97 blues that I've seen were mighty fine. S&M's then were top notch.

Sweet Stag on that Cotton Cleaver, OR-19...that blade looks capable of harvesting a couple of acres in one fell swoop!

Final showing of this Teardrop/Bomber Jack with Interior Mammoth handle (going up on the eBay auction block today). Got to make room for some new arrivals. Always a tough decision of what to hang onto and what to let go of. I really like this knife, but its time has come.

Seeing that Cotton Sampler got me fixated on stag.

I love stag and I have a lot of it, but I'll start with this #51 from my Mini Trapper collection which has an unusual diamond tang stamp on the pile side of the clip blade. Also interesting to note: the pattern number (032151) is etched on the pile side of the spay blade--all my other S&Ms have the etchings on the mark side of the blades.

The C & W in the diamond makes me wonder if it wasn't a SFO. It is a beauty alright.

Thanks, gents. Appreciate the positive comments.

jerryd--I'm sure you are correct about it being an SFO. I remember reading what the C & W stood for at the time I bought it, but for some reason that information did not get saved my hard copy paper files and I can't seem to access it in my overloaded cranial memory banks.

This S&M #69 Barlow is unusual enough just for having a Wharncliffe blade--don't see too many Wharncliffe Barlows...Sheepfoot, yes, but not Wharnies--hats off to the DFC for that brilliant idea (or is this Queen's answer to the GEC #77?); and, it's also got some most unusual stag handle scales as well...Gnarly, indeed! It's kind of amazing that someone was able to squeeze a keystone shield in all those bumps & knobs.

I already had one of these Premier 51s, but when I saw the other one for sale I just couldn't resist.
