Remington blade etch

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 blade etch

Post by espn77 » Sun Aug 27, 2017 10:53 pm

I was looking threw my C-5 catalog. Got to thinking. There are a lot of etched I've never seen before. From different scout knives, cattle knives, stockman knives, electrician knives. I'll post a fee pictures out of the catalog. Then some out of my collection. I'd love to see some of the different etched blades you guys have.

Here is a Powell River Sales Co LTD with PRS Co shield. 4" closed and has one of my most favorite blade patterns the Muskrat or Turkish clip. As I recall I was told this was a timber or lumber company in British Columbia Canada?

Remumc, I really like your knife. Lucky to still have the etch so you know what P.R.S.CO stands for. I have a knife that I assume had an etch at one time but it gone now. Only ESCO PACKING on the shield. I've tried to research it but haven't been able to find anything.

That sure is nice Jerry. Here is a blade on a R2105. I'm under the impression that THEDE was a hardware store in the Midwest. But not certain.

I posted this before but it is worth another look and fits in with the etch theme of this thread. Survived since Christmas 1927.
