The best from tradition with high technology
Founded in 1769, the first rule of PUMA was and still is today, first class quality which is reflected in their hunting, sporting and outdoor knives. In a city whose name is not unreasonably registered trade mark for quality knives and scissors: Solingen.
It has always been part of the PUMA philosophy to manufacture products worthy of the magic name and the high demand of this city. For more than 250 years PUMA impresses with extra ordinary quality and workmannship.
We achieve this through a combination of traditional craftsmannship and the use of high tech machinery and know how.
We utilise high tech in a way that increases the quality of our products and satisfies our costumers, but we also show customers the traditional method of Solingen knife production in the third century.
Handwork is one aspect of production overseen by our technical staff, but more and more we are using the CNC machinery for parts of our products and this high precision helps us to be more efficient and competitve on price.
However, you will find a lot of products manufactured the old traditional way, especially hunting and commemorative knives.
PUMA places the importance of perfect workmannship, combined with the experience and ideas of our technical staff even higher than that of high tech machinery. This is why after full production each knife is checked and its quality controlled by our staff personally.
PUMA is one of the leading companies in production of hunting, sporting, outdoor and fishing knives.
Puma Set Evolution
The evolution of the knife:
The eventful history of mankind is inseparably linked to the development of cutting tools. Due to the different developments of different tribes, the transitions of the eras "Stone, Bronze and Iron Age" are fluent as well as temporally staggered. Blade weapons, however, found their way into every culture and also served - often with elaborate decorations - as status symbols of their respective owners.
From the very beginning it was vital to have the tools to produce food and clothing. For this purpose, hunted game had to be cut up and its components processed. In the beginning our ancestors used sharp-edged stones. By carving flint stones, the first "knife", the hand axe, was produced. This could be used for cutting, scraping, splitting, sharpening and as a weapon. Man had thus reached a stage of evolution in which he could use a tool he had made himself in a purposeful way. In further development, humans succeeded in mining and processing metals. Copper was first used to make knives. It could be poured into moulds by heating and then be processed.
This new melting process made it possible to produce complex shapes so that blades and handles could form an integral unit. However, the cutting tools were not hard and robust enough to do all the work that was required, so stone tools were still used. In the following period, however, it was possible to add a little tin to the copper and thus produce bronze. This now possessed excellent characteristics and completely replaced stone as blade material. The melting and refining of iron ore finally led to the production of iron and later - by adding carbon - steel. The compaction and attainable hardness of the material could be controlled by forging and subsequent heat treatment, so that wear resistance and durability were optimised. It was now possible to produce longer blades, for example for swords, which were both hard and flexible.
The PUMA set "Evolution" consists of the models "Stone", "Bronze" and "Iron
Abstractions based on historical models made of 440C stainless steel hardened to 56 HRC
Legends never die! By popular demand, we have reissued the "large Frevert hunting nicker" (former model no. 113589). This model has been an integral part of hunting equipment for decades and has not lost its relevance in terms of design and functionality. The blade is extremely sturdy and therefore suitable for all kinds of work in the hunting area. The stag handle scales are underlaid with fibre and the nickel silver bolsters make this classic hunting knife particularly safe to handle. It comes with an accurately fitting leather belt sheath, which is equipped with two safety straps incl. push button closure.
Puma White Hunter Oryx
64 years after the introduction of the famous PUMA white hunter we present an exclusive new version of our classic: The PUMA white hunter oryx edition. The handles for this knife are made from the horns of the Oryx antelope. The special shape of these horns gives the handles a unique look. The blade shape of our white hunter remains unchanged, but is enhanced by the image of an oryx antelope.
