The knife was a gift for my Grandfather who apparently used it a few times. This knife comes in its original box that is all but disintegrated and in very poor condition. This knife comes with two tissue-paper weight sheets of instructions/manuals one in English and the other in German language.This knife comes with a leather sheath which will slide over a belt for carrying. The markings on the blade are as follows: PUMA-WERK SOLINGEN Made in Germany Handarbeit Ges Gerch No.
3591 Reverse side marked: Original Waidmesser fur Schalenwild Please note that the handle on the corkscrew side of the knife has a 1/2 long gouge in the deer horn handle. Please look carefully at pictures. The gouge is not sharp, rather smooth.
Please note that I cannot state the blade condition as I do not know anything about knives. I believe the knife blade measures 5 in length I read that the definition of knife length is the sharpened and unsharpened metal above the handle.
The knife has three other appliances in addition to the 5 blade: corkscrew, saw knife and a blunt end knife. When you view the sharpened blade on the "Puma-Werk" side of the knife, there is a dark spot along the edge midway. It looks like a knick in the blade but when the blade is run along a fingernail or a smooth metal edge, it appears smooth. It is a discoloration to the metal I guess.One side of the handle (the noncorkscrew side) has a silver hexagon marked "800" measuring 1/2" x 3/8". Brochure states this is: "Place for owner's name or initials on special inset plate of Sterling Silver". PLEASE NOTE, in the USA 925 is considered to be Sterling Silver. I have held on to this knife for years but no one in the family hunts time to let go. Thank you for your time and patience in reading this lengthy description.
