**SOLD**LAYAWAY 28/2**SOLD**MINT, Boxed German Puma White Hunter ‘Big Game’ Knife With Stainless Steel Blade, Wild Stag Horn Scales & Scabbard. Sn 15980:2 - 15980:2
The Puma White Hunter knife was handmade in Solingen, Germany, and has long set the standard for the ultimate hunting knife. The Puma White Hunter was developed in 1956 in conjunction with the East African Professional Hunter’s Association to be the leading knife for big game hunting. White Hunter’s feature stag handles which are made from the shed antlers of Wild Stag. The scales individually cut and hand fitted to the knife. Brass rivets are used to attach the scales to the knife. The rivet heads are filed and, finally, the handle is burnished to a precise size and shape for optimal fit and function. Once the PUMA blade is forged, it is tempered and hand finished in 22 separate steps by skilled craftsmen. Each step uses increasingly fine lubricants, oil coolants, and special polishing grease. This is a near mint example of the Puma Whiter Hunter. The knife has a pristine 6 ¼” stainless steel blade with serrated upper and lower sections. The blade is crisply marked ‘Puma White Hunter Hand Made Germany 11 6375 16/RC’ and with Puma Head logo. Its Wild Stag Horn Scales are as new with correct brass rivets and lanyard hole. The knife measures 10 ¾” overall. The knife is complete with its mint brown leather scabbard with single belt loop riveted and stitched seam, belt and thigh cords.
