Thanks Stu. I bought those Pumas about 5 years ago from Sportsmans Guide. It was an awesome deal at about $70 each. They are real German crafted knives, but LOOK OUT...Those Pumas sure are pretty knives, I've been looking for an old Puma Bowie Circa Late 60's to replace the one that was stolen from my family when I was a kid. My father bought it to send to my mother's cousin in Vietnam but he never got the chance to send it to him I- never did get the whole story on why, I presume he died in combat but I may be wrong. In any event the knife was stolen years later but they left the wooden box and sheath, just took the knife out of the box. Too bad vintage Pumas are so expensive.
Thanks Cate, but I weren't much of a scout. I made it for one year in the Cub Scouts before I was asked not to come to anymore den meetings. Something about my mom being fat and some kid getting beat up. Oh well, it was my first knife, and I still like it. Got a Six Million Dollar Man watch for Christmas that day to. Wish I still had that!You have a very, very nice collection!
Thank you for sharing.
PS: My older brother was a Scout too!
