Educate me on this knife

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.

Educate me on this knife

Postby tnorton » Fri Dec 07, 2018 6:42 pm

I know this is not an original 4466 obviously - is it a later reproduction ? - has the stamp been modified - The story is as some of you know my dad was a Remington collector , he gave me this knife for EDC about 5 or 6 years ago (maybe more) - I think he bought it on line (?) told me it was only good for carry - I still carry it some and actually like the knife. Any info or opinions welcome - thanks - you guys educate me all the time just by browsing through this forum -- Clint

Stamps are bad,pattern#'s stamped singularly.Should have stag handles and a bullet shield.Your dad gave you good advice,put in your pocket and use it.

The pattern number has been cold stamped. In my opinion the repro R4466 made in 1988 are great carry knives and Roger gifted me one that has been rehandled with stag. I like carrying it.

I agree with both of you - but just raises questions - why would someone cold stamp and not even finish the forgery with shield and proper handles - what knife did they start with - etc -- thanks

The answer to that is that poor counterfeits like this are produced to fool the uneducated collectors. Fool the fools in other words. The educated collectors will not pay the money the counterfeiters hope to get with such knives.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
