    Dang, that's a lot of awesome winterbottom right there! :eek::thumbsup: But going all in with that will scare everyone away. :D I have a question: are these carbon steel? I don't know much about older queen knives (except that they're quite the lookers) but I read they used a lot of stainless even back in the day when it wasn't popular with other cutleries.

    Thanks, Ron. I like your two totes today, too. Woodn't mind seeing them more often.

    Thanks (and as Ron hinted, that's not all of them, so no scaring - this time). Invented in England in 1914 and patented in America in 1915, stainless steel was first produced in the U.S.A. at the Cyclops Steel Company (Titusville, PA) in 1917. Queen City Cutlery, also located in Titusville, was one of the first American Cutlery firms to use stainless steel, which they proudly called "Queen Steel". I understand that this started in the early 1920s. All of those pictured are Queen Steel. I have some early Queen City knives that may have carbon steel, but I need to look more closely to tell (they are 1922 or later, so I tend to believe they are Queen Steel). All of my Schatt & Morgans pre-date the firm's bankruptcy (1929?) and are carbon steel constructed (I think - need to look sometime).

    Switched out the fixed blade on my belt for a LB7, just wanted to change it up a bit. So for Wooden Wednesday a trifecta of wood and brass

    Well I just weighed the 110 and it clocked 7oz and the 55 1oz :eek:
    The 110 does have a lot of brass so it makes sense, if the 55 were proportionately as thick or In fact actually scaled down from the 110 there would probably be proper correlation.

    It's a Ka-Bar I picked up as part of this group, I dont know much more about it than that myself. No idea of age, but pretty sure it isn't to old. Maybe 80's-90's vintage?

    That's what I would guess if I had bought it, I may have to be on the lookout for one.

    Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals is tonight. My Blues are facing a tough Boston Bruins team. I haven’t shaved in weeks (the playoff beard is a tradition in the National Hockey League), and I am carrying my Blues inspired trio of knives. I have had great fun this post season, regardless of the final score tonight.
