PUMA Germany 3591 WAIDMESSER Gamekeeper’s Knife, made in the 1950th, sambar stag, rare leather punch/sewing awl option type. Unused condition – nearly impossible to find this nice.
Very rare early PUMA-WERK model 3591 WAIDMESSER FUR SCHALENWILD (literally in English: Hunting knife for Ungulates). This model is mostly referred to as the Gamekeeper’s Knife outside of Germany; hand-crafted in the 1950th in Solingen, Germany. Puma’s Gamekeeper’s design is loosely based on the WW-2 era Werkzeugmesser machine-gunner’s knife which Puma was manufacturing during the war (photos are not included with the lot).
Genuine India stag handle scales with a silver inlay on one side, besides the main blade the knife features the gutting/skinning blade, bone saw, and a super-rare leather punch/sewing awl blade option (most Gamekeepers came with a corkscrew). The knife is in super-rare unused condition – this type is scarce to begin with but it’s almost impossible to find in unused, minty condition nowadays.
A superb quality full-tang construction knife with genuine India sambar stag handle scales. The main blade is about 4-1/2″ / 11.5 cm long; the knife is about 9” / 22.8 cm overall. All blades are tight with no wobble; all open and close with a sharp snap. Genuine Sambar stag handle scales provide a very positive and comfortable grip; the pins are brass; an engravable octagon inlay on one side is .800 silver.
The blades have original factory edge; they are RAZOR-sharp; the tips are intact; a few light hairlines the main blade are noted for accuracy. There is no sheath or a retail box. This vintage PUMA Germany 3591 WAIDMESSER Gamekeeper’s Knife will be a welcome addition to any collection.
I recently purchased several vintage knives from a family of a long-time knife collector. I addition to a couple of vintage Puma, Case XX and Remington knives, I have several pre-WW2 American blades, as well as WW2 era fighting daggers and WW1 trench knives available for sale – please take a look in our Militaria section. This minty uma Abercrombie Fitch White Hunter hunting knife has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, 100% original condition; these are the actual photos.
