Please read our Terms below for details. This is a HUGE find in more ways than one. Made in Bridgeport, Connecticut by Remington, America's most legendary maker of firearms, it dates to the period of 1930's--early 1940's and in terms of its design, materials, craftsmanship, condition, rarity and especially performance, it's a SUPERB knife that demonstrates once again that when American knife makers put their minds to it they could produce quality ahead of anyone. As you can see in the photos condition is excellent with no problems of any kind and in one key way it's BETTER than new, having been professionally edged for this sale and now WICKEDLY sharp--as it should be--and sharper than when it first left the factory.
As with all carbon steel blades it must be kept dry to prevent rusting but this minor inconvenience is more than offset by the superior performance delivered by carbon steel. At 20" long with a hand-forged 14.5" blade that is 3-1/8 wide, it's the largest size the company ever made but never once does it feel unbalanced or unwieldy in the hand. This is a true testament to the skill of the master cutlers who made this knife who did so at a time in our industrial history when the commitment of craftsmen to the quality of their wares was much more the norm than the exception. And with good reason because any craftsman associated with the making of a knife like this should justifiably be VERY proud of their work, indeed.Thump its blade with your finger or run it across a steel and it rings out like a bell, a true testament to the perfect tempering and heat treatment of such a blade. Handles are African ebony of the finest quality, dense and dark, hafted over a full and tapered tang, which is integral with the knife's bolster and blade.
With its extra width providing additional knuckle clearance you can use this knife at warp speed safely and quickly. For those among you who are collecting fine cutlery I probably don't have to tell you how scarce fully forged pieces like this are by Remington--in ANY size or in ANY condition--so to find one like this, ready to work at the very highest levels right out of the box, is virtually unobtainium.
Just look at it--a work of the cutler's art. A fantastic opportunity to acquire the rare kind of piece that user and collector alike will treasure with equal enthusiasm as an instant heirloom.
