The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I've been offline awhile, sorry about that, but naturally one of the first things I do when back is to bid on a pocket knife. Won the bidding on this old Remington Jack here on IKC, it has great jigged bone handles and it is in decent condition considering how sharpened-down the blades are,(though still very usable). The seller Bryan took better photos than I did, so I'll post those here instead of mine. It is a very solid knife, even after being well-used and oft-sharpened. I would rate the pull at a firm 8+, so whoever made it used heavy duty springs, The handles are in perfect shape, real pocket wear and no cracks anywhere. I saw several other nearly identical looking to this from Camillus, Case and even Boker, but in my opinion this one has a Camillus look to it. It also looks like it was probably made during the 30's-40's, as those similar knives I found were made during that same time period, if any of you have any ideas of its age please pipe up.
This one is my Christmas present to myself, and I'll be putting it into my EDC rotation. I mean it's so hand worn it would be a shame to just put it onto a shelf. Happy holidays everyone!
