Remington has announced that the iconic lineup of Remington cutlery has been reborn. Remington fans, sportsmen and women, knife enthusiasts and collectors everywhere can once again find a variety of Remington cutlery showcasing familiar Big Green branding and quality. The new and comprehensive assortment will soon be available to purchase in stores around America as well as on the company website.

“So many of us grew up with a Remington knife or two in our pockets,” said Remington Director of Accessories Danny Evans. “Having Remington knives back for the next generation represents such an iconic part of the Remington name and history.”

Remington is introducing four main series of knives, with each series including pocket, folding and fixed blade knife variations. The Woodland Series, Backwoods Series, Hunter Series and Guide Series will feature distinctive design work paired with quality craftsmanship.

Additionally, the initial line up of cutlery includes the hand-crafted in the USA Bullet Knife, an Everyday-Carry or EDC line up of knives, a Sportsmen’s Series with many options of cutlery perfect for an outdoor lifestyle, and a variety of Collectable Tin Gift Sets featuring art from the Remington collection and wild game scenes.

Remington first began making knives shortly after World War I, when an influx of skilled craftsmen fled war-torn Europe to work in the United States. The company attracted  the talent and created a division dedicated to knife production in 1919.

The first models to appear with the company name included pocketknives, Boy Scout versions and some for manicuring, but the best seller by far was the one wearing a handle with a metal, cartridge-shaped insert. From 1920 to 1941 Remington released nearly 30 variations on the theme. The string of best sellers stopped with World War II.

They didn’t reappear until 1982. Today, models throughout the Bullet Knife line remain popular among collectors, who are likely to gobble up the new versions quickly.
