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.

This old guy has some personality. Between the Knife and the sheath I believe it has four different date stamps. The entire package is as found several years ago. It will eventually be cleaned when it comes its time. It has an anomaly as we know the rh35 had a five and a quarter inch blade. Evidently somewhere along I think someone want it to be known so thaey stampede with a 1/4 after the 5. That was done after the knife was heat treated I believe otherwise the bottom of stamp would be dark as the rest of stamps are. Remington certainly spared no expense in building these old knives. The colors of stack just leaps at you. They are far superior to the Pal RH 35 knives. Here are several photos so take a look and utter some opinions.
