Impulse Auction Purchase- Gems or Junk?

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.

That's a China made kickoff. Definately not Remington made and doesn't have the quality of a German made 70's knife. Not authorized by Remington. Stamp, handles, pattern. Everything.

Just spend some time closely examining all the knives, soon you'll be able to tell the difference. ::tu::

I will certainly do that. I have a lot to learn, and I'm thankful you and others pointed this one out. It seems Chinese knockoffs leave no stone unturned.

Lan was kind enough to offer me the lobster knife.
It fits right in with the others. Thanks.
