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.
This is my rarest and most unusual Remington related item. I bought this from the night watchman at the Remington knife factory. He also had several unused pocket knives in their original box that I bought. When the factory closed he brought some stuff home with him.
Back then it was common for knife factories to have their own fire department and Remington certainly had their own as evidenced by this old badge. Hope you guys enjoy it
