This knife was my dads before he married my mom in 1936. It's a Remington UMC with the original sheith. The book on knives and razors lists it as a RH28 which it is. It's in near perfect cond.(no nicks on blade, no rust, hard rubber on handle perfect etc. Is this knife collectable and what do you guys think it's worth. Thanks in advance Howie

Remington knives were made from 1925 until 1940, when the knive division was sold to the Pal Blade Company. Production continued through WWII by PAL with leather handle models using the same RH model numbers.

The Remingtons had either Black hard rubber handles or later, leather washer handles.

Depending on model the leather washer ones are much more common and go from $35 to $75 on eBay.

The hard rubber handle RH28 is rarer, and older, and will bring perhaps twice that or more if in excellent condition.

I think it would be priceless to you because it belonged to your father.

If it belonged to your dad, and has stayed around for over 77 years at the least, its priceless to you. You should hold on to it, and later give it to your son or daughter. I wouldn't ever consider selling it. But with the early rubber grips, I have seen one sell for $200.. not much more. But say, 30 years from now, it will be worth more. And more to your children when they get it.
