Clint, or anybody:  When did this Puma switch begin?  I picked up a couple Pumas in Germany in the '80s, and they were made in Germany.  Then later some Puma models were made in Spain, but you could tell the difference.  When did China get involved?

Charles Shlomo is correct.  Now I am not saying these knives are poor quality. I would have to T&E one to see how they stood up.  I am saying they are not made in Germany.  Most if not all, of Puma knives are made in China. China then ships them off to Germany where they are sold and exported.  Yes they will say made in Germany but they are not.  The clue is if the Puma costs less than 120.00 USD then the knife is made in China. One of these knives which cost us $30 cost the dealer $15, Puma $10 and China to make 90 cents. I talked to a US auto knife maker who told me a knife which cost him $80 to make was quoted at 90 cents by a Chinese knife manufacture.

I don't know much about Puma but this looks like some good prices on Puma knives.
