My decision to purchase this Puma Bowie Knife was based upon my preferrence of simple tools which are exceptionally well made. One first must look at the intended function of this knife. It is a HUNTING knife. Not a COMBAT knife. Having served in the USMC for several years I became tired of tanto blades, composite sheaths, hollow handles and all the drama that goes into a combat knife. Also, combat knives are just downright ugly. The Puma Bowie, which is not a true Bowie by the way, is a beautiful knife. Unlike other knives there are no rattles, plastic parts or parts that can be wiggled by hand. This is truly a man's knife, a hunter's knife. And a hunter demands exceptional quality in his gear. The knife comes razor sharp and holds an edge well. It is hefty enough to chop small limbs. I have field dressed, skinned and butchered two deer with mine since I purchased it. It performs campsite chores easily as well. This is the last hunting knife you will ever need and your grandson will be proud to inherit it one day.

This is a fairly good knife but lacking quality workmanship. Even after soaking in mineral oil the tang is proud of the scales on both the top and bottom on both sides, it's not much but still noticeable. The scales a fairly thick and not matched too well, at the butt tip they are even more recessed from the tang making for uncomfortable and sharp edges. If you have larger hands I would steer clear of this one. There are a number of small flats on the edge of the blade reflecting light but these should go away with light stropping. While adequate the finish of the blade shows uniform light grind marks. For a knife of this caliber a little more time polishing and fitting would go a long ways towards 5 stars and I would gladly pay for it. It's a disappointment to see this once fine knife made to these lesser standards to save a few dollars. I will keep it and would still recommend it but think it's overpriced given the level of craftsmanship and detail on mine.

Very good quality, unique stag scales, I own three puma bowies, the first a gift from my father which is from the original puma steel blade line which was replaced by the 440c blades offered today. The newer two bowies or of the 440c blade material. All three are beauties. Super sharp, each with its own unique one of a kind set of stag handles. (Naturally no two are the same). Important note!!! Do not make the mistake and confuse the gold class puma bowie made and assembled in Germany with the poorer quality puma sgb bowie assembled in China. The cheap one has the brass finger guard and usually comes with the nylon sheath. It has poor fit and substandard finish. Good knife to buy if you lose it want lose any sleep over it. For the best value stay with the German built gold class bowie, just a better blade for your buck. The sheath is also top notch on the gold class puma bowie, very well made and much better (imo) than the ones your granddad received with the earlier made pumas decades back. Price of the puma bowie not too steep if you compare it with other superior knives of good steel and finish. Sharp right out of the box, but you can improve this if you want it wicked sharp. Depending on your personal skill of sharpening a knife.

What can I say, it is a Puma. Very fine steel and handle. If you ever try a puma, it will be the only brand you will ever use again. The edge last well and sharpens like a dream. What a great brand of cutlery.

I bought this knife as a replacement for one I lost in a burglary years ago. That one was bought in the early 70's and I'm using it as a point of comparison for this replacement. Right out of the box, the Puma Bowie 116396 looks great and feels good in the hand. Closer inspection reveals a definite drop-off in workmanship and attention to detail over the intervening years. I'll hit the bad points first, keeping in mind that these points might be unique to the example I received.

The full tang is not ground flush with the handle scales. Rubbing your finger all around the tang, you can feel the metal standing slightly proud of the scales. The mismatch is not enough to feel when gripping the knife, but is a slight annoyance just knowing it exists. The finger guard stands about 1/8" high of the tang on the back of the blade, by design. On the handle side of the guard, it is not filed and buffed smooth, but left in the rough. There is a small grinding flaw at the back end of the false edge where the grinder dug slightly into the metal. The edges of the lanyard loop in the handle are sharp and not buffed smooth as they were on the 70's version. These are minor flaws and not readily apparent without close inspection. The sheath is heavy duty leather, as on the original, but the tie downs are very different. On the 70's version, they were made from leather boot laces. On this one, they are some sort of plasticized twine or cord. I've already cut them off for replacement.

The good. My original was Pumasteel carbon steel and it was a bear to sharpen. This new version is made from 440C stainless. A few licks on a medium grit diamond hone brings the edge up and a few more strokes on a fine diamond hone finish it to a hair popping edge.
