Load VSWR spec for K3?

I know the K3 output power is specified at 100W into 50 ohms. Am I safe running 100W into 2:1? 3:1? It would be nice to see some kind of curves showing safe output power levels into non-optimal loads.

From Fred Cady's book "the K3S output will begin to cut back when SWR reaches about 2.5:1 when running 100 watts.  Higher SWRs can be tolerated at lower power."
