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'm guessing this little pearl Remington with the checkerboard handle is extremely rare and seldom seen. Too bad the handle is broken and duplicating it would be almost impossible to do. Thought others would like to see. Enjoyhttps://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Winche ... Swt7Nbh-1-

You are right . Very rare and in mint condition worth around $500. The best listing is in Sargent’s 6th Edition. Take care. John

I think I can improve the appearance of that knife. I'll post some before and after pictures if so.
