Remington Strem pocket knife

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.

Remington Strem pocket knife

Postby bjz » Thu Aug 30, 2018 1:18 pm

The one I have does not appear to be one of the 5000 limited edition. But similar in most other ways. The main puzzle is the X that has been ground into trade mark circle. Otherwise it is very good condition. Thoughts??

Welcome! I assume you are talking about on of these (Stren)? The defaced stamp would indicate it is a factory second; perhaps with some minor cosmetic issue.

Dennis thanks, a flaw makes sense but I can't find one. Additionally it has one blade. Edge, scaler, and bottle opener.

It's surprising sometimes how little it takes for the maker to declare a knife to be a factory second. Sounds like it will be a great fishing knife so use it and enjoy it.
