Ka-Bar Made by Canal Street

Former Schrade President Walley Gardner and principal Joe Hufnagel joined with nine master cutlers to form a group of US craftsmen with over 300 years of combined knife making experience to create Canal Street Cutlery. It was first located in upstate New York where a long and rich tradition of quality knife making dates back to the 19th century. Unfortunately, the company closed its doors in 2015, but not before making some great knives. The brand was resurrected in 2018 as Canal Street Cutlery Co-Op & focuses on making very small batches of high quality traditional knives. As a Co-Op, it is owned by the knife makers who work there.

Anyone know if this Ka-Bar folding hunter was made by Canal Street? I can't seem to find any information on this 0983 number stamped on the pile side of the mail blade. Could it mean it was made in September 1983 or is it a pattern number? ::shrug::

Definitely not Canal Street. Maybe Queen? I know they had a similar pattern to that but not sure if they ever did the grooved pulls. ::hmm::
I'm 95% sure it's Queen though.
