My Remingtons.

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.

That’s it. I only know of the three models I mentioned. Are there others used by HTT magazine?

I have a few of the old HTT magazines. I try to scan the page whenever I come across an advertisement for a Remington knife offered along with a subscription to the magazine. Here are the ones that I have come across so far. For completeness, I am repeating the one I included previously. I have the 3 you mentioned, but I have never seen the double blade large sleeveboard with what appear to be ebony, or maybe pyremite, handles and no blade etch - unlike the others.

I’ve never seen the large sleeve board either. I have examples of the other 3. Do you think that the sleeve board was ever offered?

I would have to say HTT had these made for their promotion, but they may not have been requested by subscribers. I’m not close to my old catalogs at the moment, however the pattern seems familiar.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Keith has one of these in every handle configuration and posts some pictures later :)

Remington did offer these Jumbo knives in their catalog number 1 and again in their C-5 catalog as the pictures illustrate. There were slight variations as you know related to the offer of the knives in discussion as promotion knives and not as reorder production knives. That’s my stab at it. ::tu::

Thank you Rocky. Do you know if HTT magazine ever offered the 2 blade jumbo sleeveboard as a premium?

Thank you Roger. Do you know if these premiums were used prior to or after the years of using Remington.

I believe that watch fob was offered in the 1912 edition of Hunter-Trader-Trapper, volume 24

Well I don’t know if others have this resource but if you go to the site provided you will find a complete front to back view of each Hunter-Trader-Trapper magazines from the early 1900’s to the early to mid 1930’s. These digital copies are complete and include all ads and marketing advertisements. The articles I have found continue to hold interest and value in these modern times...well over 100 years later! Hope it helps and should give many answers to those that take the time and research. Enjoy...I do! ::handshake:: ::tu:: ::super_happy::

That is one pattern I haven't done a very good job of obtaining. The only example I have is the R3725.

I need some help. Bought a group of knives this week and this PAL was in the bunch. It appears to be a Navy issue. Thanks in advance for any help.
