Unusual description of Queen steak knife handles

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.

Unusual description of Queen steak knife handles

Postby treefarmer » Sat May 11, 2019 2:35 pm

A month or so back I ran across 6 Queen steak knives, they have real Winterbottom handles, a sideways "Q", probably the '52-'55 stamp and all with the etch on the blade, a "Q" surrounded by "Finest Stainless". What caught my attention was the way the knives were described: Vintage wood faux antler handles. ::hmm:: I checked them again last night and decided to buy them for $30/free shipping. Same pages there were the longer knives of the same set bread knives, meat slicers, etc. for over fifty bucks each. ::shrug:: The handles are identical to the handle on this one I got a year or so back:

Be interested to see them when you get them Phillip. (although I bet the steak Miss Joy fixes you could cut with a fork) ::tu::

My "vintage wood faux antler handles" arrived today. Seems like a nice pile of real Winterbottom bone to me. :) I'll be looking around for a carving fork with Winterbottom bone "vintage wood faux antler handles" and a big old "Q" stamped on the tang. One of the knives has a bit of a crack around the rivet/pin near the pommel, but one out of five ain't too bad, being they a faux.

6 Queen steak knives and 2 long knives I had already found. Real Winterbottom is neat stuff in my book! The 3rd one up from the bottom has the damaged bone.
