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.

I’ve owned a fare number over the years and none have had etch. Also, old advertising material shows blades without etch. John

Great looking knife. I think they are a very classy knife. They came with round or square bolsters. Some have a match strike on one nail nick. I dont believe they came with an etch. Good find and thanks for showing us.

Keith, another wonderful Remington, you sure have some great Remingtons.

Picked up a R6163 half Congress, just over 3 3/4", close to full blades, tight with great snap but unfortunately been cleaned.
