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.

yes, i'd say form the 60's to early 70's/ i think in the mid- late 70's they started stamping their pattern numbers on the tang and changed the Kabar to KA-
To think, all this time, only GEC realized it's an eye sore to put shields on stag, not mention not cost effective. I like that Kabar lots! Size?
