I believe it would have said PAL BLADE CO when the stamping was fresher.

Tang stamp is believed to have been used 1940-1945.

Nice one Calvin. I did not think of Pal until you mentioned it.

I don’t know where you are, but there’s a Powell River just upcoast from me, in British Columbia. I believe the town’s been around for quite some time, certainly since the ‘40’s. Matter of fact, I’ve been there.
I’ll try Googling the company.
