Remington farmers jack

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.

Have any of these old Remington's been cleaned and that is also the question of clean or not to clean and when or why not

Not the one I posted since Jim Sargent put it's picture in his earlier books, because it has all the same markings it had back then.

None of any I have since I purchased them.

I have one Remington Barlow and a big cigar, probably 4 inches with main spear blade and smaller pen blade at opposite ends and neither one has a pattern stamp' any input?

Would love to see pictures of it but not having a pattern number is fairly common on the later 30's knives.
