Need help with Remington Knife ID

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.

Need help with Remington Knife ID

Postby knifeaholic » Mon Sep 10, 2018 6:00 pm

I got this knife in with a collection. I have a feeling that it is a "cobbled" knife - real Remington blade in a non-Remington frame.

Would appreciate any input based on the pattern number, as I do not have any Remington reference books.

Just under 2-1/2" closed. Pattern # R6904 stamped.

Looks like it could very well be a J. Salm knife with the Remington blade added. I remember having one nearly identical minus the Remington blade.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
