Remington ID

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.

Looks like an R100
Also known as the "standard dollar knife"

Welcome to AAPK.

Your knife has what's called enclosed, or covered, backsprings. The normal backsprings are there, they're just covered by the metal plate. Knife looks like possibly an R100. Someone that's a real Remington expert will probably be along soon to confirm or refute my guess. Nice knife!

Here is a picture of the box they came in and this knife still has the etch on the blade.

Seems like Remington also made a R100B with a punch blade.

Here is my example of the R100 with the punch and our favorite Acorn shield. Take care.

Your knife doesn't have covered back springs does it?
Very nice ::tu::

Interesting knife to me. Here is a R105A, not a covered back spring and a pen blade. A R105B, covered back spring with a punch. The R100A with a pen blade came with covered and uncovered back springs. I believe the R100B also came with and without covered back springs.

Your R105 is configured just like mine with the onyx scales. Yeah the acorn shield is very interesting and definitely never messed with. You can tell when a shield has been added or changed. Mine came out of the Paul Davis collection. Paul passed away several years ago but was considered one of the foremost Remington experts.
