Remington Rxxx6 (stag)

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 Rxxx6 (stag)

Postby espn77 » Sun Feb 05, 2017 3:48 pm

Remington made a few stag handle knives. I have seen very few of them. Thought we needed a special place for these knives. I bought this one and I did very little research before buying it, (actually none). It's a R7766. From the pictures I thought I was buying a pen knife but when I got it I was very surprised with its size. Measures 4 1/2 inches long. The stag is exceptional in my opinion. Thanks for looking and if you have some rare Remington stag knives I'd love to see them.

Keith I know nothing about the knife or pattern, but I do know some pretty stag when I see it. ::tu::

This R7766 I think they called Anglo Saxon whittler.

Picked this R3056 stockman today at the Amarillo gun/knife show. I'm only going to let you see one blade as the other two are pretty disappointing.

OK. The R3056 I just posted isn't a R3056. It's 4 1/4 inches long. I can't see a stamp on it but I believe it is exactly like the R4563. But has stag handles. This isn't the first knife I've run across that makes me scratch my head. I have another knife with a stamp on it of R3163. Again. Has stag handles. A guy who's opinion I value told me that the handle material didn't match 100% of the time coming out of the Remington factory. Here is my R3165. Would love to have your guys take on this. Thanks.

Kieth the first two you posted are great looknig old knives.

There are no hard fast rules when it comes to knives that were made back in the day. Given that it is still very hard for me to initially consider a knife that goes against documented material and pattern codes to be correct. Both of the last two posted knives fall into that category for me.

I don't like the looks of the stag on the 3 blade stockman knife. Knife looks okay but the stag looks modern to me.

The stag cattle knife looks better but I wouldn't say good enough to go against known documentation. Bolsters look very round and resurfaced.
I also do not like the difference in color or the prominence of the pins in the bolsters.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

I don't think the 3 blade stockman began life with stag handle scales. Should be jigged bone. Don't like the way the shield was put on. Other knife may be ok. Not sure on that one.

Here is a R3056 stockman. Has 2 cracks on the back stag but I'm ok with it.

Keith, going to hold off a little to give others the opportunity to assess and evaluate the knives you are displaying. Just saying I agree with Wayne but I personally am a purest with how dedicated Remington was in the details, quality and craftsmanship of their knives before the transition with DuPont. I believe that in the early part of the 1930's to the close of Remington's cutlery division is where there is ambiguity in cutlery production. This is where I believe that most of the time, select knife mechanics take advantage in remaking, refurbishing or creating fake Remington for the eager market. Not saying anything about yours...just stating my thoughts.
