Queen Cutlery Auction
The new management team at Queen Cutlery has come up with a unique way to introduce a new knifemaker/manufacturer collaboration—they are going auction the handmade prototype and donate the proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
The prototype is not a typical one-of-a-kind proto but instead a full blown Joe Kious handmade hunter.
The Kious stag handled hunter that is the basis for a forthcoming Queen production version will be auctioned to the highest bidder at the 2013 Blade Show in Atlanta, Georgia. The total proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Foundation.
Kious has long been regarded as one of the top knifemakers in the world, whose work has been featured in numerous art knife books and knife periodicals. One of his knives is featured in a scene in the 1991 movie, “Exposure,” in which a knife seller displaying his selection of combat knives to the star of the film picks up a smart dagger and says, “Joe Kious, very expensive.”
The Kious knife will come in a presentation case from Gunboxesusa.com, a division of John P. Scott Woodworking, Inc. Scott produces the presentation boxes for the Medal of Honor winners.
This is a silent auction that will end at the blade show BUT you have the chance to enter at anytime prior to that by Contacting RYAN Daniels at firstname.lastname@example.org
