:lol: That is something Keith! Makes me wonder what the small town politics were that were involved in that. ::hmm:: Whatever it is I bet there's an interesting story. If only we knew what it is.

But I'd classify it as a temporary victory, given the status of the two cutlery companies today. ::sotb:: :lol:

Maybe your right Ken, but at least we had our moment of glory.

You better pray that Brandford Supply was not supplying the tents, tables, and chairs!

i suspect it's quite simple. The Remington salesman offered a lesser price.

It's just business.

Very possibly true. But Bradford is a small town. I grew up in a small town so I know how things work. It's hard to believe Case didn't get a "last look" opportunity to match a competitor bid. It's also plausible that Remington thought it would be feather in their cap (and a great joke on rival Case) to get that contract, and bid a price so low that Case turned it down on final look.

Idle speculation - we will likely never know the whole story.

Keith, let's see some side angle shots of that knife. It is quite unique. I really like that one! ::tu::
