Remington R1613! Any info

Post by Dgood187 » Fri Jun 04, 2021 1:09 pm

So I just got my hands on this Remington R1613 but I have heard some think none were ever made but the bone definitely looks like Remington bone to me

Houston Price had a mint value of $700 in his 1991 OFFICIAL GUIDE TO COLLECTOR KNIVES. Don't have any idea what that means today. It appears used and a bit short but it's still a great knife. ::tu:: J.O'.

Yea I was just wondering if it was Authentic or not unfortunately it’s been used hard outside looks great but the opening an closing snap is completely gone an the blade is definitely short. It’s a shame. I do know a really good knife repair guy probably the best around that could fix the snap an maybe extend the tip but idk if it’s worth it or not.?

Not sure who thinks these knives were never made but your knife is completely correct and they were definitely made.

An honest opinion would you get the snap fixed? Or blade extended? Because in this condition you would probably be lucky to get 20percent of mint price. Not that I’m looking to sell but I do collect as an investment.

Not me.. I'd leave it alone. It's a relic and won't be if rebuilt. JMHO. J.O'.

By me ????? Whatever a well informed buyer and seller agree on. Seems prices and "values" don't correlate very much these days. ::shrug:: J.O'.

This is what I do to get snap back in an old knife.
Put it in my ultrasonic cleaner for a couple cycles.
Scrub out with dish soap and small brush.
Blow completely dry with compressed air.
Oil the joints with Quick Release oil.
This works almost every time, UNLESS the tang is worn.
