Remington bullet 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.

Remington bullet knives

Post by Charlieoscar » Tue Jan 24, 2023 8:44 pm

Hi. I just discovered this forum. So interesting reading posts. I have a collection of Remington bullet knives which I will be selling as soon as I get organized. They are from 1982 to 2013. All new in box with papers. I also have Remington calendars and a few Remington knife posters. Also, the hardcover book “Remington Bullet Knives” by Mel Brewster, copyright 1991. I can post a picture of a bullet knife I won at an auction, R4243 Camper, circa 1933-1935 in a box of keys, for $24.50! Hint - never educate an auctioneer!. I no longer have that knife. I’m 76 years old, very active, but I’m ready to let others enjoy the bygone era of Remington.

I will continue posting here based on interested responses.

Dan

The way I read it, he no longer has the R4243. It does sound like he has a nice collection of modern Bullet knives. ::tu::

You are correct, Robert. I sold this on Ebay in 2006 for $460. Here is a photo of it, and a photo of another Remington knife of which I know nothing. if it was numbered it's completely worn off.

I will sign up for a membership so I can post what I have for sale.
