Remington R1306

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.

Um.... No (lol). In my opinion this is 10x out of bounds. This example has some condition issues. For example, the blade gives me heartburn. Even a stupendous R1306 example wouldn't bring $3000 in my opinion.

Looks like the buffer has had some hard use on that one.
