About the Steel
When in matters, would you rather have a German Blade or a Chinese blade on your knife?
The Famous PUMA® Proofmark - Lots of companies talk about the quality of their steel. PUMA® proves it. We proof every single PUMA® knife blade made in Germany for hardness. If you examine the right hand side of your knife, you will see a small indented dot on the blade. (show photo of knife with dot circled). This small dot is the “proof mark” from a Rockwell hardness tester. Using a diamond-pointed needle, every blade is tested for hardness. This needle causes the proof mark that is a symbol of a PUMA and is your personal assurance that your knife will deliver the PUMA® quality promise. Before we package our knives, we know for sure that they deliver the right degree of hardness. If it does not pass, it does not ship .
