Kabar / Union swing guard

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.

Kabar / Union swing guard

Here’s my other purchase, it’s gorgeous. The shield side of the blade has the Union Cutlery stamp but the backside only has P A T. Enjoy and thanks for the comments on my blades.

That's the only pattern I have encountered with the triangle cut nail nick.

I have not seen that nail nick before.
That makes that knife even more beautiful.
