Remington Shriners pen knife/Watch Fob

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.

Cool little knife. 1924-1933 is its age. Pyremite is the handle material. I think your knife is super cool. Not a overly valuable knife but it's the first one like it I've ever seen. Thanks for showing us. ::tu::

Remington made many pen knives with a company or organization name or logo. They are good knives and made by this esteemed old maker but sell rather low on ebay, often ~ $30 if condition is good similar to O.P. knife.
