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 was wondering if there are any plans to continue this great line. I've collected every release so far and have been disappointed in the sporadic offerings. Seems like the last release was over…Continue

Comment by Jan Carter on Thursday

Ken Daniels, owner and C.E.O. of Queen Cutlery of Titusville PA. is announcing, just two years after finalizing the purchase of Queen Cutlery a recent major production equipment investment. Daniels indicated that the equipment was received on the 18th of September and the instillation is currently on going. “The equipment was purchased to streamline the production process but more importantly to eliminate the issue of back orders” said Daniels. Daniels went on to say that this production equipment will make quality control much easier, more reliable and a less time consuming task to properly manage. Queen Cutlery is anticipating that this new production addition will likely produce 6 to 8 additional jobs by as early as the first of the year 2015.

Notice on the Queen Cutlery page

"Please be informed we are discontinuing the Curly Zebra Wood from the line.  A new wood handle will be available soon."

So if you like that Curly Zebra wood start looking now, this means what is out there will see a price increase I am sure

Dan & Fred

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer our questions.  This was such a big undertaking for you all and we sincerely appreciate it

Comment by Dan Lago on September 3, 2014 at 16:03

Just nboticed Ron Dumeah's query about handle codes.  Thank you. There is NOT a separate and complete list of handle material codes as of yet.  We will add that to our "refinement list."  

For the present, I would suggest focusing on the series reports for all models produced with a given handle material (say birds eye maple - BEM).  If you search model # reports, you can see how many different handle materials have been used with a knife from 1980 -2013, and in each line you will see the handle material spelled out, so you can get a good sense of the handle codes.

Some long-running series, (like Rawhide) have changes in handles and bolsters that are not really spelled out in the catalog pages, but are very interesting.  You have to dig for those, but if you take the time to go to the catalog page images, you can see the different treatments, but they are not defined in the texts or in our database.

Thanks,

Dan.

I appreciate the query by Llantz on  the model 11 in Birds eye maple - Fred is right it is a typo. And thankjs to Jan for forwarding it.  Wonderful to get feedback - We will keep weeding out errors as we assemble a "second edition.  This is all volunteer work, and we will collect errors until we have found enough to justify making a complete set of new reports - so you may not see this fixed until closer to Christmas... but we will fix it.

There may be other changes that collectors would like in introductory paragraphs or instructions. As well as finding all the typos. So please keep these comments and questions coming.  It takes a village to do knife history....

Thanks,

Dan

This is a typo.  All #11s are one blade.  I will get a note to Ryan and Dand to correct the error.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
