Kabar swing guard help

The KA-BAR brand originated as a trademark of the Tidioute Cutlery Company. Tidioute was later taken over & renamed the Union Cutlery Company which continued making the brand until Union eventually adopted it as the company name in 1952. Cutco Corporation later acquired the company in 1996.

I have a couple of fish jacks with the triangular nail nick;one is a Wenoka and the other a Camco. Don't recall seeing that nail nick on a Ka-Bar.
