Postby LDF Knives » Wed Oct 11, 2017 9:58 pm

Want to know a Remington 3 blade Cocobolo with acorn Shield once is a punch and it has Remington UMC in the circle no made in USA around the circle, what decade could this be? and it's has no machine stamped on the tang heard some was just inked that has worn off. looks more like a Jack with a long pull on the master blade thanks for any inputs replied :D

Some good pictures are totally needed here. Lots of possibilities, fake, replaced blades, all original, reproduction, etc.
minimum: all blades open, both sides, close up of tang area to see if signs of grinding, removing markings. And , all blades open looking down on spine of knife.
Then the replies will come flooding in !

KJ is right, some good in-focus pictures would help. Does the stamp look like one of these? https://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/co ... ng-stamps/

"my SD slot don't work"
that makes getting info about any knife you have almost impossible. Many knives are not what is stamped on the blade tang so we try to 'read the knife', like what pattern, blade arrangement, alignment of springs & blades, etc. long list. Hence we need to see good pics or have knife in hand to be able to say anything reliable.
time for a new computer for you ?

I would agree with you on that. I've never seen one. Very nice in really good shape. ::tu::

The Remington toothpicks with the UMC shield you see regularly. But without a shield you see less often. Theses two a R953 and a R1293 I see less of. The R1293 I see very few of. Yours is more rare than mine.
