Welcome Home

I have a Remington R16 that is in WAY too good of shape to be what the tang stamp dates it at. The stamp dates to 1933-35. I have heard tales that they might have remade these in the 80's, but cannot find any proof online.I would love to hear this is a rare treasure, but have my doubts! lol 

Looking for any help I can get on this one! 

Thanks Guys and Gals.

I will try to do some checking when I get time. I have a Remington book that I will check when I get time.


Thanks Billy, I did see the same knife or one similiar on worthpoint going back a few years ago. It didnt really say the year or what it went for . I think you need to be a member of worthpoint.

Thank you guys. The one on worth point is the only one I saw like it at all. There is a park one on eBay for big bucks. All my knife guys are stumped as well. They say to contract Remington, but from what I see, there isn't anyone to contact about old Remington's.

Mike,

My first thought when I saw the pictures you posted was that this is a recently manufactured knife. What you ask, would lead me to that conclusion? Well the handle material is stablized wood and that was not in use in the 1930s. What you have appears to be either Pakkawood or Dymondwood. I also thought it might be a Frankenstein, but now believe it's new manufacture.

Thanks James, with that info I was able to track it down, or at least mostly. Thank you so very much, here is a very similar Trapper I found.

Mike, I have several that were made in the pakka wood, I just have not had time to check, but James pretty much cleared hat up.

Yep that is a modern knife. Not sure the production time frame but doesnt have the 1920-1940s look.

There could be two companies that made that knife. The first one is Smokey Mountain Knife Works and almost all of their REMINGTON Knives ware made by Camillus Cutlery Company. The second one is Carolina Knife Works which was owned by Blackie Collins, (Deceased) he also owned Bowen Knife Company and they made a lot of Bullet Knives and other Remington knives. They were famous for using Wessonwood on their knife handles. You may want to talk with Kevin Pipes at SMKW and see if he can provide any more guidance.
