Script union tang information

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.

Script union tang information

Post by Scootch »

This is a script Union scout with spun pins and bone handles. The only marked blade is the main. Any information, date range, rarity etc would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Scott

That knife is an oddity. I assume that it is a scout/utility knife? I have owned several of them, all with that tang mark.

The ones that I had were unmistakably contract knives made by Ulster, circa 1950's era.

I cannot explain why that particular tang mark was used.
