Let’s let this sink in: 245th anniversary in 2014. That’s right, German knife manufacturer, PUMA, was founded in 1769 by Johann Wilhelm Lauterjung in the town of Solingen, where it still resides today. Over the centuries, PUMA has produced many great and legendary knives, none more so than the White Hunter, first introduced in 1956 for the East African Professional Hunting Association. The White Hunter, along with other famous models like the Skinner and Hunter’s Pal have become a staple for hunters across the world and especially in North America.
In 2003, PUMA expanded its lineup by introducing the PUMA IP series in Europe, which is produced in Spain and offers unrivaled price performance. The PUMA IP series is now available in North America, as well. To mark its 245th anniversary—wow—PUMA has introduced two new, limited-edition knives. First is the 245 Year Anniversary Knife, with the inscription “Me Fecit Solingen 1769-2014” (Made in Solingen 1769-2014) engraved on the 440C blade, and featuring a stag handle. Each knife is individually numbered from 1 to 245 and is available for $659.99. Second is a 2014 knife that features the same inscription engraved on theblade, but with the handle made of mammoth tooth and with special mammoth motif engravings on the bolsters. Each knife is individually numbered from 1 to 24 and is available for $1,699.99.
PUMA and PUMA IP knives are imported by MINOX USA, Inc., and are available through an authorized PUMA original dealer.
