The PUMA® Knife Company USA is proud to introduce the most innovative, important product line to the PUMA® Knife Family in 50 years. PUMA® SGB knives are made with Solingen, Germany sourced steel blades which are then assembled in Asia. Each blade is Rockwell tested to ensure hardness between 55 and 57 and bears the dot of a Rockwell proofmark. These knives deliver the performance of superior grade 1.4116 German cutlery steel at popular price points never seen before. If you are looking for a knife that delivers legendary German blade performance, look no further. When it matters, wouldn't you prefer a German blade over a Chinese blade?
