The PUMA IP lanza Saufeder is a quality collection piece for the Canadian. It is not legal to hunt with a spear in Ontario, Canada. Please check your local laws before purchase if you intend to use it for hunting.
The trademark holder, PUMA Germany, has this to say about this fine article: "The lanza model from PUMA IP is the modern form of the classic boar spear. Proven as a knife (deer catcher) for outdoor use, it can be combined with the oak shaft to form a classic boar spear. In total, the lanza has a length of 1,855 mm. The knife is held in a sheath made of saddle leather." (https://www.pumaknives.de/jagdmesser/feststehende-messer/604/puma-ip-lanza) - translated from the original German
