Remington’s Numbering System
[list of handle materials] [ list of factory pattern numbers]
Most Remington knives have pattern numbers stamped on the reverse side of the master blade. The number usually consists of between three to five digits. The first digit on folding knives will always be an R. This indicates that it is a folding knife. The last digit will indicate the handle material, and the numbers in the middle indicate the pattern.
Some knives will have fewer digits while others have more. One example of this is knives with chains attached. These have the letters CH following the pattern number.
