Welcome to Queen Cutlery Guide

We think there is a lot to learn about the knives and history of Queen Cutlery over its 115 years of operation. We make no claim to be “Comprehensive;” since we see both the knives and history as expanding. 

“Special” knives – Queen projects and Special Factory orders – have not been documented and much new information about Queen’s history has emerge as a result of the company’s bankruptcy auction. We will be expanding these new efforts.

This site takes it name from the GUIDES produced from a database 70 years of Catalog and price lists which provide the most rapid and efficient way to summarize the entire basis of the company’s cutlery from 1947-2017 with Model #, Series of knives, and knife patterns.

The Tang and Etch GUIDE, produced largely by our team, provides the most complete record to date, based on actual knives, that used Queen Cutlery marks and their predecessors, Schatt & Morgan, and Queen City companies. 

Our “Article” section contains new articles on knives and history and will continue to grow.  

We think INFORMATION is the keys to enjoying this hobby more and spending your money well.  We are actively seeking new information for the beginning collector and the veteran. We look forward to your participation.
