Unpacking.....

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.

Unpacking.....

Postby espn77 » Wed Dec 19, 2018 1:58 am

I'm going to take a page out of John's book and show off my collection as I unpack as I have recently moved and trying to set up my new knife room.

Thanks guys. All the display cases and knives are Remingtons. Except 10 case knives. This is the biggest area I've ever had to be able to have my stuff in. Everything will be able to be on display.

Lucky guy to have that collection. Also lucky guy to have a special clean place to display and store
your collection. Of course, we are lucky enough to see your upcoming room.
