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…Continue

some of the "Rmington" knives for sale on Ebay are made in China.  Some are not describes as such, and some have "PRC" on the blade.  Be careful.

Just an aside:  I think these two new knives are being made by Bear and son.

2023 (hawkbill) is the bottom one.  2024 (waterfowler) is the top.

Remington is back.  Two new year knives are available; 2023 and 2024.  The 2023 is a hawkbill with red bone-type scales.  The 2024 knife is called a "waterfowler."  It has two blades, a guthook, and yellow bone-type scales.  Smoky Mountain has them.

Picked this one up on Ebay.  It is the R1253 lockback supposedly favored by Al Capone.

I should add that my reference does not describe this knife as "damascus steel."  A second reference gives an estimated value as $600.

My reference for remington knives lists R293 as a serpentine Jack with a clip and a spey blade.  Sometimes this pattern is referred to as a trapper pattern. It is further described as having a oval shield on the scale.  Length 3 1/2 inches closed.  Estimated value of one in good condition is $300.  Hope this is of help.

Found this at a gun show last weekend. Remington damascus R293. On the bolster is engraved 000 and on the box it says "BOB PRE PRODUCTION" it's in perfect condition. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks Christian

It seems that the original bullet knife #1123 is fairly common.  I am seeing them frequently on Ebay.  Here are two of that model that I have in my collection.

The one at the top left side of the photo has had a repair to the scale done.  It does detract from the value of the knife.  The lower right hand side one is in much better condition.

It seems like there are more old original bullet knives for sale on Ebay lately. I have several of them, but am always looking to add to my collection.
