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 was looking back at this post and ran across espn77's picture of the R1882 ( nice ) - reminded me of a knife I have the R1582

why is it some knives you just connect with even if they are not the rarest or even that collectable - just always liked the knife :D

I don't think you could find nicer jigged bone than that! ::oh_my::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

I still carry the remington knife that has the choke tube wrench .when I'm hunting. I sold all the rest except for 2 others . I still have a new utility knife in the little plastic bag.

With some leg work, good fortune, and a little cash (lol) I completed a full set of original Remington Bullet knives with this R4466. I had let a few of these go by over the years thinking a better one would come along soon. Well soon turned into a long time. :) It has a decent etch with mostly clean blades with nice stag and no cracks.
