OKCA show pearls

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.

The R3604 stockman is 3 7/8" with almost full blades. Sharpened down a little and carried a lot. Amazing that the pearl survived. There is a chip at the center pin on the back.

I like large jack knives like that with lots of pearl.
I have pearl knives of different sizes that have been used and sharpened and carried a lot with the pearl surviving.
Your knife is very nice.
