The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
4 Star full size lock back Model 715, 1982
Ivory Micarta Scales, One of my personal favourites. If I could afford it I could collect nothing but Puma 4 Stars just for all the various exotic materials used for the scales. Nothing exotic about Micarta though. I just like it.
Also this model has Brass bolsters. Most of the 7xx series are nickel silver
Seriously I just either can't find or can't afford all the various different options of scales offered over the years in what are not that many different models of Puma 4 Star knives.
Apart from the obvious Stag Antler, others include Cape Buffalo Horn, Ebony, African Black Wood, Jacaranda, Cocobolo, Rose Wood, all different colours of Micarta, Jigged Bone in various colours, Grenadil, Thuya Root and more
Plainsman, Model 971, 1969
Fairly scarce knife, as Puma for whatever reason changed the name from Plainsman to Game Warden in the early 1970's. Same knife and model numbers, just different name
