Remington R6653

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.

Ive seen a couple main blade variations in google searches for this pattern. One with a long pull and one with a drawn swedge with a standard nail nick and mine with the cut swedge and nail Nick. Anyone else have one?

Neat, I have a couple knives with the trade mark etch and a couple with the master knife etch. Whats up with that?

The gunstock is a master knife and the blood grove is a master knife, the pearl and the tipped bolster are both trade mark.

All four have their etch, some bolder than others

If you figure out the reason for the different etches let us know. I have identical knives with different etches. I've heard theories but no proof.

Keith,
Do you have your knives displayed now? You said you had moved, would love to see the new layout. I still have the R3243, haven’t been able to let it go after screwing up the sale a few months ago.(I sent it to the wrong address.)
