Madison, N.C. – Remington began manufacturing top-quality pocket knives in the early 1920’s, and ever since their initial introduction, Remington knives have been prized for their functional design, unsurpassed workmanship and first-rate materials. In conjunction with the introduction of the Remington Cutlery Collector’s Club (RCCC), a commemorative “Knife of the Year” is being introduced for 2009. Membership in RCCC is required to purchase this knife and other special edition offerings. For further information, please visit www.remingtoncutlery.com.
Combining elements of American cutlery history and Remington heritage in a classic folding knife design, the inaugural Cutlery Collector’s Club “Knife of the Year” is based on the vintage R103 pattern, the first knife ever produced by Remington. This knife, as every future RCCC offering, is made in the USA and will carry the last published tang stamp from 1940 as well as the Remington trademark blade etch.
This first-in-a-series knife features two blades, a 4-inch clip blade and a 2 1/2–inch pen blade, both constructed of 440 stainless steel, enclosed in a handle reproduced from the original jig used on many Remington knives between 1920 to 1940. The knife measures 5-inches when closed and also features nickel silver bolsters and brass liner.
