Where Are All The Remington Knife Collectors?

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.

Where Are All The Remington Knife Collectors?

Postby Miller Bro's » Mon Feb 08, 2010 10:51 pm

I can`t believe it has been over a month since Bryan added this Remington forum and there is only one topic and a few posts ::shrug::

Does anyone collect Remington knives anymore? At one time they were as collectible as Case, if not more so. There are a lot of collectors on AAPK, yet very few knives posted to this forum.


This is certainly puzzling :?

I have some and will post them as soon as I can. I don`t have many though.

Anyone else have some nice old remington knives? Let`s see them! ::tu::

good question. i collect newer remington bullets but not older remingtons. too scared of getting burned. know a guy who does but he doesnt belong to aapk and wouldnt be interested. most folks want case, which irritates me as i think they are overpriced and just have way too many models. they sure are easy to find though. i dont buy most newer remingtons as no one seems to want them although i think they are equal to or better than case. but many brands suffer at the hands of case, for lots of reasons. think its a shame. guess the quality is there but the advertising and merchandising is not.

Phil,

I don`t know about the newer knives, but the older knives were always highly collectible. The newer ones are probably made by Case, I know Camillus made them till they went out of business :(


Stock,

Very pretty pearls!

Thanks for sharing them :D

MB what I think would be neat is to have a few collectors post vintage Bullets until we
have all of them pictured.
