Rem commercial/kitchen knives

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.

Anyone know when Remington stopped producing butcher knives?

Pretty sure it was when Pal bought them out in 1940

I agree. Remington quit the cutlery business when they sold their whole operation to Pal in 1940 and Pal moved all the equipment out of the Remington Bridgeport factory. Remington never manufactured any knives after that. There are knives that were assembled by Pal from original leftover Remington parts so there could have been some butcher knives marked Remington put together by Pal for a year or two after the purchase, but the general break-off date is 1940.
