Salesman samples

The Remington Corporation and the knives that they built have influenced the U.S. cutlery industry more than nearly any other manufacturer. From the time America was settled, to the end of WWI, American knife companies struggled to compete with Britain and German imports, but events that occurred during and after the First World War led to a great change in this phenomenon. Unprecedented opportunities arose, and Remington stepped up to seize the moment. In the process, they created some of today's most prized collectables. In an ironic twist, the next World War played the greatest role in ending the company’s domination of the industry.

Salesman samples

Postby espn77 » Sat Jul 15, 2017 12:26 am

I bought these two R6723 salesman samples from Roger, (peanut). Both have different style crest shields, one has $10.00 on the back of the clip blade the othe has 20.00 fox on the clip. Both knives having 1933-35 stamps. I assume one is a price for a half dozen and the other is a price for a full dozen. If you have anything to add I'd love to hear. Enjoy Keith

Keith you have collected another stunning set of knives. Great addition to your collection!
As far as the pricing, the Remington cutlery June 5th 1936 Jobber's price list has the pattern R6723 stated cost as follows:

1. Jobbers' cost per dozen- $7.50
2. Trade price per dozen- $10.00

Going back a little to your " F " pattern the same Remington Jobbers' cutlery listing has your F1632 as a "Scraper" with the following cost:
1. Jobbers' cost per dozen $3.60
2. Trade price per dozen $4.80

Again great job on your collection! ::tu::

Keith I know you will find a way to add it to your collection. They are hard to find and not often available for purchase. Best of luck I know you have the ability to, "Get 'er Done"! ::tu::
