Unusual Remington.............

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.

Unusual Remington.............

Post by knife7knut » Sat Oct 17, 2020 8:06 pm

I don't normally buy knives with broken blades unless they are something special and I think this one may qualify.This one was free.
Has the Remington UMC circle stamp that is worn away a bit;no pattern number(I call it a lobster pattern).Handles appear to be silver but not marked sterling(or anything else)that are engraved on the ends with an oak leaf and acorn pattern and in the middle on one side a standing Indian chief aiming an arrow.May have had a bail on one end at some time.
Master blade shows a fair amount of fullness but the pen blade is broken just in front of the nail nick.Manicure blade has file on bottom and side.
Any info as to the pattern number;etc. would be greatly appreciated.Not looking to sell.
