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.

Looks awesome my friend. Like the old Remington ammo display also in addition to all the knives, catalogs, boxes, etc.

Keith, were you lucky to have the built-in niche already available or did you have to do some carpentry work? It looks perfectly sized for the cases you put into it.

That was exactly how it was. I couldn't believe how perfectly they fit.

A lot of history there Keith. Looking good!

Lmaooooo. Got yourself some jokes. I know the last one wasn't very impressed with the collection.


Keith,
Big oops on my part, wasn’t aware of the break-up.
I also got divorced because of my collecting issues. Fortunately I got to keep everything as well. The new wife is also a collector, so we have a healthy co-dependency, becoming pickers for each other. 10 years now without a single disagreement.
She had me agree to a 30-year contract, but she has yet to put anything in writing.

Thanks Brad, Ken. I really enjoy the displaying part of collecting. I think one corner of the room is finished.
