Remington bullet knife. (Quarter Master).

I like knives I've seldom met an outdoorsman, shooter, hunter or fisherman that doesn't have an affinity for a nice knife. I have a drawer full of custom knives, homemade knives and "tactical" knives. But sometimes all I want to use is a good ol' pocket knife. You know the type. It's like the one that Grandad always kept in the pocket of his bib overalls. There was nothing fancy about it. No locking blades or designer features. Just a couple of good sharp blades.

Remington has just announced the latest in its series of bullet knives, The Apprentice. This knife is a beauty. It features celluloid "tortoise shell" scales and gleaming german-silver bolsters with the Remington bullet inlaid in the left hand scale. A trapper style knife, it features two blades, both hinged at the same point. One is a clip point, the other a neat spey blade. The blades are stainless steel, so they will still look good when you pass this on to your grandkids. The knife measures a little over 4 inches closed, and rides smoothly in your pocket.

I really like the spey blade, as it offers a long straight edge for doing really important tasks: things like showing the little neighbor boy how to peel an orange in one long slice, or whittling a sharp point on an old stick. Hey, you never know when you may need a sharp stick.

These Remington bullet knives are limited editions. The Apprentice will be replaced by a different model next year. So don't hesitate. Order one of these while you can. It really is a very nicely made knife and a pleasant nostalgic link to simpler days.
