Jumbo Remington gunstock

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.

Jumbo Remington gunstock

Post by 270johnson9098 » Fri Dec 01, 2017 3:51 pm

This is a big beautiful knife but it doesn’t have a model# and I can’t seem to find one in any of my books. It’s stamped 1935-1940 and I’ve never seen another like it was wondering if anyone had any ideas.

I saw your picture of the knife in the other thread. I don't thing your knife is 1935-40. It is a recently made knife by who I don't know.

I am afraid the knife is a fantasy, not anything to do with Remington. There are a few of these floating around out there. Not sure where they came from but they are not genuine Remingtons.

hmmmm interesting POV. Curious as to why you would believe it’s not a Remington. I’ve read all the books I can find and tried digging into it further but when it’s looked at and felt it feels like a Remington with good snap. We know there are models that don’t have stamped but inked numbers. I’ve also seen some counterfeits,but I have no reason to believe that this is one. I’m definitely not an expert but I do have quite a few years of experience. Guess I’ll just have to keep digging

I'm by no means an expert either. First is the blade etch. Not an etch they used back then and sure wouldn't put it on upside down. The handles don't look like the Rogers bone handles they used to use. The Remington in the handles would not have been able to have been done with the jigging machines back then. The tang stamp I've seen that used plenty on newer made knives. Only my opinion.

Many times when people ask "why do you believe it's not genuine" it can be very hard to quantify. Difficult to the point that it is hard to relate and be believed by whoever is asking the question. In many cases it is just speculation and difference of opinion, nothing more.

My point of view is based on over 35 years of actively buying, selling and collecting old knives. Absolutely no doubt in my mind it is not an authentic Remington product. I have seen a good number of knives identical to yours. Newer knives made in the last 25 years or so.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
