PUMA Germany Bayernmesser hunting knife – Bavarian lederhosen type Hunter with sambar stag handle scales and original leather sheath. Made circa 1950th-1960th; VERY rare type.
Rare PUMA’s “Bayernmesser” model Hunter with genuine India stag handle scales and original dark-brown leather sheath in scarce slightly condition. The “Bayernmesser” (literally – The Bavarian Knife in German) was finished in the traditional Bavarian “Lederhosen Trachtenmesser” (dress hunting knife) style. Puma manufactured “Bayernmesser” model for a short time in the 1950th – early 1960th, way before Puma started using control numbers indicating the date of the manufacture.
Excellent quality full-tang construction knife with genuine India sambar stag handle scales. The knife is about 9” / 23 cm overall; satin-polished blade with small “bone saw” serrations is about 4-3/8″ / 11 cm long. Genuine Sambar stag handle scales provide a very positive and comfortable grip; brass pins and solid aluminum handguard. All handle parts are tight with no play. The blade has an original factory edge; it is RAZOR-sharp; the tip is intact but it’s slightly bent. With the exception of the tip, the knife looks practically unused. The sheath is in excellent condition, considering the age; both keepers are nice and tight.
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 vintage PUMA Germany Bayernmesser hunting knife has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way – VERY rare type in any shape or form these days. The knife is in 100% original “as is” condition; these are the actual photos.
