Remington Lockback question

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.

Remington Lockback question

Post by Robusta » Sun Jan 14, 2018 6:26 pm

I am not collector,just have many interests. I have obtained a Remington lock back kife and am trying to learn about it and any possible value.
It has one blade 3 and 3/4" Long overall length is 8 and 3/4 closed is 5 inches. 4 brass rivets and a brass bushed hole for a Lanyard?
Has what I would call a gutting hook
The knife blade is marked "R-3" and the opposite side has Remington UMC in a circle with made in USA around the circle.
The gutting hook is unmarked
The handle has the same Remington UMC in a circle but without the USA
The blade has been poorly sharpend with some scratches but no chips or gouging. Handle has a crack around one rivet and the lanyard hole.

Any info especially age would be appreciated!

I'm pretty sure that knife was made by Camillus , has handles that are brown jigged delrin with nickel silver bolsters.
Hollow ground satin polished stainless steel clip blade and bone saw with gut hook. Probably early 1990's.

Looks like they sell for around $120 on ebay in new condition. ... 2817936262
