Tipped?

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.

Tipped?

Postby geocash » Tue Apr 09, 2019 7:33 pm

This Barlow is the only Remington I have that was made by Remington

so you know I don't know Remingtons. I don't even know the model number. I know it's difficult to get a good measurement from my image but maybe it won't hurt. I read it as 3 5/8" L, folded:

But I suspect the master blade was longer, originally.

Will one of you kind experts try to enlighten me a little?

Me again. The knife is 3 5/16" L, not 3 5/8". Sorry.

HI geocash, yes, your suspicions are correct. The blade is shorter than originally and has been reprofiled. tip probably broken at some time in the past.Late remington model somewhere around 1935 to 1940. Still a nice user. Randy

I think your knife is probably an RB44. Nice old knife. Thanks for showing us

Appreciate it, eveled. I still tote it & like it. It looks & feels like it was well-made but I reckon I'll be on the lookout for one that's a bit better.
