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.

Lots of awesome knives in this thread!
Here's one in a bit rougher shape- the etching is hard to see, and secondary blade has a chip, but I like it none-the-less. R23CH

I don't look at a lot of PAL knives. But that the first etched one I've seen. Have you seen many?

That's a transitional knife, made by the Pal knife company, using parts they bought from the Remington Cutlery division after they shut down. I'd say it was made in or very close to 1941. I've got a couple of Pal etched, Remington tang stamped knives.
That is a nice one. ::tu::

Here's an etch which I'm not sure was made at the factory!!! I sent this one back, but kept pictures .

The second picture I believe is authentic , although this blade and knife are a mystery..

The third blade is the same as the second,the mystery blades. Etch is not very visible on it.

Your probably right for bring sceptical of the first etch. I've not seen a Remington etch that the Remington wasn't underlined.

For me few things can say quality quite as well a nicely etched knife blade. Great stuff in this thread!
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
