In the year 1953, Puma changed its direction slightly to focus on manufacturing functional hunting, fishing, survival, sporting and outdoor knives. During 1956, PUMA designed what is probably its most famous knife ever, the PUMA White Hunter, for an East African hunting organization. 200 years has passed and the Solingen, Germany has been the source of the finest knives made anywhere in the world. Since 1920 – the best of those knives have borne the name PUMA.
PUMA hunter knives are made from premium DI.4 steel, each individually drop forged and hardened to hold the keenest possible edge. Each model has a number and a name engraved on the blade, along with the year of its manufacture a bonus for collectors, who find it easy to date PUMA knives when assigning values. The handles are made of all natural materials, usually stag horn or bone, and every detail is made of the finest material available.
