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.

That is going to be neat when it is all set up. Are you making it like an old knife retail store with an OLD cash register on the counter and signage on the walls?

I agree with Rogers statement on the prior page Keith. I would call it "Fun," not work.

I have some signage and oddball stuff. Remington did make a cash register, mostly wooden ones. The ones I've seen have only been on Ebay and the owner seems to think they are highly valuable, I don't. Shipping them normally makes them way to expensive.

Keith, the 2nd level has a tremendous group of Scout knives as a tenant. ::tu:: The knives on the red pad labeled pairing knives look really nice, too.

Thanks Jerry. I got that from Wayne. It's kind of a cool piece. That pad folds in half and snaps together like a book. I assume it's a salesman piece that they would have full of pairing knives and lay out to show the different styles to to hardware store owner.

Keith, what a fantastic display! Not only does it contains amazing knives, but there is an awesome cross-section of everything Remington knife related. The boxes, sheaths, catalogs, books, rolls, pads, etc., are amazing and the and the large old case to hold it all is the cherry on top. ::tu:: ::tu::

PS: Can't wait to see what's next. :)

The big case had a tag underneath it when I got it that said assembled in 1919. In quite a few of the old cutlery catalogs they were for sale. One company must have made them for everyone. I'm going with it being an original Remington counter. ::shrug::
