Is This A Legitimate Knife?

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.

Is This A Legitimate Knife?

Post by RedBone6318 » Mon Feb 22, 2021 1:52 pm

Remington Wrigley I picked up. Just started getting into Remingtons, mainly collect Case XX era knives but the Remingtons have always been attractive so I have started to acquire some.

This is the second Wrigley I have bought but I have some concerns here, mainly the brass liners. My other one has nickel silver liners. Youll notice both blades have a bit of a bend as well.

Anyway, whats ya’lls opinions, legit or cobbled?

Awesome. Thanks for the input.

As I said, the brass liners is what threw me off the most. Otherwise the knife looked good. Did they use brass in the later years? I believe this is a 1933-35.
