Where Are All The Remington Knife Collectors?

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.

Keith I‘ve written on this topic in the forum. This goes back to knives authorized in production by Remington. Quickpoint made many knives for Remington. I believe this is one of those advertising knifes authorized by Remington celebrating a “small” Solingen cutlery factory that was authorized by Remington to produce select knives in Germany. Hence we find the rare knives made that have the unique German Remington stamped logo or the German advertising made knife that stamped “Authorized in Germany”. Research does lean in this direction as being correct. You, in my opinion have a special knife substantiating this information. Great little knife!

Quickpoint was a company that would personalize stuff for your business back in the day. It's odd to me that a German company would contract an American company for knives, unless they were buying other advertising stuff from quickpoint. I found a herders knife exactly the same online.

Rocky, I think this is a late 30's knife. Do you agree or do you think it's a 60'-70's knife?

Keith, Chris, thank you, Chris totally agree, pen in front of main. Keith, yea the spey blade Barlows are tough to find, I've managed to put a small collection of vintage ones together and was very pleased to add the Remington.

I do think that this is a knife from that era from the pictures posted and the description provided. Great find and I believe important to research on the authorized German factory that produced knives for Remington as well. It could be an important key that can be used to unlock questions related to other German made Remington logo knives in that era. ::tu:: ::handshake::
