Below you will find pictures of most tang stamps Remington used over the company’s many years of manufacturing.

Hopefully you will find this information very useful in determining the age of any given Remington knife.

Case has introduced 33 distinct tang stamps since 1905 for its folding knives, and 17 stamps on its fixed-blade knives.

See References for a complete gallery, which will also help you to identify the years of manufacture.

Look for distinctive elements on the tang stamp: the word Case XX; one or more dots; a series of dots and X's (for example, .x.x.) surrounding the word “Case”; or lightning-shaped S's.

The XX refers to the company’s proprietary two-step heating and two-step testing systems.
