    Queen Cutlery isn't just a company, it's an American treasure, this is terrible news. I'm seriously bummed to hear this.

    I may have to go to National Gun Day tomorrow and check out what they have, might find a bargain.

    I sold off all my Schatt & Morgan / File & Wire knives (the 1990's). I've also sold a bunch of vintage Queen Cutlery over the years too. The only Queen knife I have left is a vintage TL-29. :(

    I'm still bummed about them having trouble, just hoping that they can sell or make a comeback. This type of old world knifemaker company is nearly extinct, especially in the USA.
