About Frank

A collection is as timeless as the owner and can easily become a hobby, turned addiction, only to later be handed down to generations to come. It is about much more than a blade.

Our pocketknives are carried by outdoor enthusiast, tradesmen, and the well-respected knife collector. From the truck to the links, Frank’s Classic offers fine, high quality knives where the heritage runs deep.

Founded in 2008 in the Mountains of Western North Carolina, Frank’s Classic Knives, is owned and operated by the timeless purveyor himself - Frank B. Powers.

A collection built on 40 years of knowledge in the industry, concentrating primarily on Vintage Case  Knives, Case Classic, and Great Eastern Cutlery. Frank’s collection later grew to include well-known manufacturers: Queen, Schatt & Morgan, Tuna Valley Cutlery, Lile Knives, Randall, and many other custom makers.

Frank’s Classic Knives has partnered with the Daniels Family and Queen Cutlery Company to solely distribute the Queen Classic Line; One of the Daniels Family’s first knife lines and the start of Great Eastern Cutlery.

The Queen Classic Line features 3 - 4 annual limited edition releases (50 knives per handle). Handled in stag and various other materials, USA made stainless steel, D - 2 tool steel, and BG 42 Steel, with brass pins and liners. Each Queen Classic is complete with a signature marking featuring Frank’s “Little Man”.  All crafted in partnership between Frank’s Classic and Queen Cutlery in the 105 year old Queen Cutlery Facility in Titusville, PA.
