Vintage Puma 6310 6" Sportmesser
on: December 02, 2016, 02:19:34 PM
Puma 6310 Sportmesser (sporting knife) from around 1940.
Although the model number is in the 1940 Puma catalogue, it shows only the 4.5 " bladed version, not this 6" bladed one.
Gave it a new edge, coated the leather washer handle with a few coats of Granger's beeswax, and polished the pommel a bit.
The chances of finding an original sheath for it however are probably slim, :D













Specs:

Overall length: 10.12 inch (25,7 cm)
Blade length: 5.98 inch (15,2 cm)
Max. blade thickness: 4,51 mm (ricasso)
Steel: hot drop-forged carbon steel
Handle material: leather and brass washers + guard & aluminum pommel
Sadly without a sheath.

Beautiful old and rare Puma! I feel your pain about the sheath;I have a pre-1964 Puma Frogmesser that I have been looking for a sheath for twenty-five years.Good luck and you never can tell;you may luck out.

 Such a great looking older knife. Once Puma knew how to make quality knives.

Nowadays Puma examples I've seen just do not have the quality fit and finish that they used to. I don't know if it's the current ownership or what, but it's clear they've let this once great brand slip to the level of mediocrity. Shame.

Nice score!!  :like:

A large percentage of their production is from the Pacific Rim. Not sure how many are still made in Germany. I bought my last new Puma more than 25 years ago.
