I have one of your PUMA® Bowie knives. The model number is 6396. In bought it in Rhein am Main, Germany in 1965. I carried it from that time until I was out of the U.S. Air Force in 1968. During that time I was a crew chief on a C-130 cargo ship and all of the crew members carried knives. To me, my PUMA® was just like a tool in my toolbox. This knife has traveled all over the world with me. It has been to Africa, India, Turkey, all over Europe, South America, Central America, and Vietnam. I once had to repair the grip and the guard. The grips are made of Cherrywood and the guard of brass. I still have the original green case since my service days. This knife is my primary hunting knife. I don’t know how many deer and other kinds of game it has skinned over the years. I have also used it on numerous salmon, lake trout, steelhead, and northern pike. It is one of the best knives I have ever owned and after all this time continues to give me great service. It holds a very nice edge when I sharpen it. I hope you continue to make as good a product as this one.
