    I've got one Stockman in this Remington "Sportsman" series in black delrin. Not a bad knife actually.

    Not sure who makes them for Remington, since they are Chinese made it could be any number of companies.

    There are lots of import brands that are fairly cheap and decent quality, but in my experience Bucks are not only some of the better ones, but are backed by the same lifetime warranty that all other Buck knives are.

    I bought one of the Texas Jack pattern Remington Sportsman knives a couple of months ago. $10 at the Rural King. Other than a lot of grittiness when opening and closing the blades it was not too bad. Very heavy compared to other knives about the same size. Have not used the blades enough to give an opinion on the quality of steel.

    Not all the Remingtons are Chinese. I've one sitting on my desk- a Moose from 2007- that is US made.

    I like kissing cranes. I did a review of a kissing crane trapper on here. you should be able to find it on search. I paid around 14 dollars.

    I didn't say they were, I was specifically referring to the "Sportsman" series in black delrin, which are all made in China. :thumbup:

    Earlier ones are Camillus. I have a 75th Anniversary R106 that I'm not sure if it is Camillus or Bear. If anyone knows please chime in.

    Despite being Chinese made, those little Remington knives are pretty well made and should be decent enough users. I have one of their peanuts that I bought on clearance from Dick's. The Chinese do traditionals a lot better than they do tacticals.

    I read that Bear is making Remington Bullet Knives now that Camillus is out. Not sure about the others.

    I would add that in the seconds grab bags from Rough Rider at least one with a Remington marked blade has shown up. Would probably be safe to say the make some for Remington.

    I'm pretty certain the same Chinese factory that makes the Rough Rider knives, makes the Chinese Remington knives. Not likely they'll release "Collector Information" about them to us here in the U.S.A.

    Bear and Son made a 2008 Remington knife series (Heritage?) as well.

    I have one, very nice nice. Very nice feel to it, wonderful stag handle. It is a Camillus. It came out in the mid to late 90's. When I see this knife, it is a wonder why they went under.

    Actually I have quite a few Remingtons built by Camillus and one Bear, which I bought last week. I sure do miss Camillus.:rolleyes:
