Anybody got any history on that dog head?

When did it come into use and why? How long was it used?

Obviously I don't know a thing about it, but would like to learn. Thanks.

The shield was first used in the early 1920's if I recall correctly on a variety of knife patterns and re-introduced in the mid-1970's on a pair of stag handled folding hunters(1&2 blade)as well as their Bicentennial trapper which featured red,white and blue laminated scales.I have a KA-BAR brochure somewhere that gives a good capsule history of the company;I'll see if I can dig it out and post it.

Thanks for that, knife7knut. I have wondered about that for a good while. I hope you can find the KA-BAR brochure.
I'll bet many others would like to know more about the dog head too.

That's a real fine knife you have there.

mine gives a patent date of 1923. was in a reprint of old ka-bar knives years back. these are real collectable & the only knife i remember that had a notch in bolster for tit projection to lock in.--HiPower the newer ka-bar collectors club knife is shown for comparison.
