VERY hard to find early 1970th Puma 3596 Gnicker (variant of the Gamekeeper Knife model) in excellent unused condition. The Gnicker was manufactured for just 3 years from 1971 to 1973; the model wasn’t a great sell and it was quickly discontinued. This rare Gnicker specimen is in excellent overall condition. Factory edge is razor-sharp, the tip is intact; the bottom 1 inch of the edge is finely serrated to cut through tougher materials. Solid full-tang construction; the knife is about 9-1/16″ / 23 cm overall; the blade is about 4-3/8″ / 11 cm. The blade is finely etched with the the Puma logo and legends on one side; the other side still has the factory blade hardness test sticker on it.  The handle is beautifully textured genuine sambar stag scales secured with 3 pins. No cracks or chips on the stag; all parts are tight with no play. Original and equally rare Puma’s Bavarian-style pocket-carry leather sheath with metal fittings in great overall condition as well; it has a small piece of Velcro one one side to attached to the interior of the box. Original correctly-labeled green-n-yellow plastic retail box is excellent; included is a sales brochure for the Gamekeeper’s knife that was part of the 3500th models series line-up.
