The original PUMA "extension knife" has been one of the most wanted rarities for decades and is now available again.
With a lot of passion and dedication, PUMA has been manufacturing hunting knives of the highest quality for over two and a half centuries. Many PUMA knives have meanwhile become true classics and are among the rarities that are not only sought after by users but especially by collectors. One of these special models is PUMA's "extension knife" which they produced in the 1930s to 1950s. Now they have decided to re-launch this model, also known as the "Pig Sticker" because of its original purpose. The new PUMA extension knife has a fold-out, 19 cm long blade made of stainless 440C steel (57-58 HRC). When folded, the blade extends well beyond the end of the handle and can therefore also be used for finer work. The movable parrying element ("Swing Guard") lies flat against the handle and swings vertically in front of the handle when the blade is folded out to reliably protect the knife-wielding hand - e.g. when catching game. In addition, the "extension knife" has a foldable lever that serves to secure and unlock the blade with retro lettering. Selected deer horn shells and a perfectly fitting leather belt sheath round off this shapely and high-quality handcrafted Solingen product.
