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.

This knife has been in my "Stuff" since 1976. I was told that it was a replica of a Remington bullet knife. It was made by Bowen to celebrate the USA's centennial. What Remington Knife did it replicate?, and who designed it? I'd like to know more about it. Can anyone help?

Bowen made authorized reproduction knives in the 70's for Remington. Yours looks like a R1303 or R1306. I've not seen one in hand but I'd bet it's a well built knife with a fairly good value.

I believe Mel Brewsters Bullet knife book has a page dedicated to the Bowen Bullets. I'll try to take a look later today and see.
Yours is a replica of a R-1303.
