Muskrat

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.

Great looking knife Harold. The color in those bone handles is just beautiful. That's a real beauty. ::nod::

Very nice Harald. You always have great knives. Not to say they didn't but I've never seen a square bolster Muscat with a match strike on it and my round bolster is the only one I've seen till yours with a match strike, and salesman sample to boot. Very nice ::tu::

No matchstrike nail nicks here but I sure like those square bolsters and the wide spring. 3 15/16" closed.
Plus it's Remington and, oh, that bone! ::woot::

Very nice knives you're showing, guys. ::tu:: ::tu::

One question that has come up in the distant past is about the bolsters. I hadn't thought about this in a while but are there two different pattern numbers involved since some have square bolsters and some have round bolsters?

There are quit a few patterns that come with both bolster type that have the same pattern number. Some other patterns even have slanted bolster or regular. Ill have to look to see if they have different Remington tang stamps.
