Remington advertising knives

Post by AREMINGTONSEDGE »

Did you know...

Not only did Remington produced the Nehi lady's leg knife for Nehi's promotional catalog but they also produced a boy's scout knife for Nehi as well!
The knife is noteworthy because it is not a commonly found knife and not one that most associate with the Nehi drink making it a fairly rare and sought after knife. The scout knife came with 2 types of shields. The first had a federal shield and the second had a bar shield that had "scout knife" inscribed on the shield. Note that both knives have the punch blade configuration.
As an important side note, the Remington produced factory knives sold to the general public and the same knife patterns that were displayed in Remington catalogs, showing and having a punch blade configuration were all adorned with an "acorn" shield. The exception to that trend were only a few patterns such as the R633 Premium Stock Jack Knife that adorned a "federal" shield and the six blade sportsmen bullet pattern R3843. Again, Remington making the promotional knife for Nehi uniquely different than their production line patterns. This knife did not come with a pattern number stamped or inked on the back of the primary blade but did have the Remington tang stamp, the Remington etch on the front of the main blade and Remington's quality, craftsmanship and renowned popularity. Nehi's catalog offered the knife for 66 cents and 66 crown caps. When one thinks about it, at 5 cents for a single soda pop it would cost a young person around $3.96 and stamps to own it and be the envy of all the other kids. I'd say back then that was some pretty cleaver marketing for Nehi!
The following pictures of the Nehi promotional catalog shows the knives in discussion. Hope you enjoyed...aremingtonsedge :wink:

Thought I'd post this as a suggested resource for those that might be interested in reading more about Remington's cutlery division and their marketing strategies for specialty and advertising knives. I wrote this article in July of 2015. Hope you have a chance for the read. :wink:

An original Remington Dupont knife blade lifter. On the front side stamped "Remington Dupont,( shield )". On the back side stamped in scripted lettering "Fine Cutlery". Note the direction of the stamping as read from the left, bullet points left as the back is same in turning over in direction. Most of the fake or reproduction blade openers point to the right and have no script lettering on back as well no Dupont shield on front. The overall shape and smooth finish of the lifter demonstrates great quality and craftsmanship it is not a stamped cookie cutter finish.
