The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Deer Hunter, Model 965, 1980
The next size below the Game Warden in the "American Style" lockback folders.
A very popular and long enduring knife still in production, probably because it is just that bit smaller than the Game Warden (or if you like a Buck 110) so just a good size for either a belt pouch or a pocket, but still large enough to be a good all round blade
Yeah I know I should polish the brass!
The smallest in the "American Style" series is the Gentleman Model 955. Don't have one yet, but I'm still looking for one at the right price (no newer than 1980) to complete the set. I'll find one one day, no big deal
Puma Model 941, 1973
Described by Puma as a "German Style Hunting Folder" this model has been around since at least 1960 (that I am aware of) and so predates Buck's claim to be the originators of the lockback design. That's not saying that Puma was first either, far from it. Not taking anything away from Al Buck, just that he refined the design, but also the older Puma design is just as strong and sturdy as anything made by Buck
Note the pouch, a soft velour pouch not intended to be carried on the belt, and not shown, at the end between two small flaps is a metal disc intended to be used in the nail slot to open the blade
Puma Jagdtashenmesser Model 210-211, 2012
Another "German Style Hunting Folder"
We don't see a lot of the "German Style" Puma folding knives here in Australia, but there have been and still are so many different models, different combinations of blades and other tools etc. I don't think any would be particularly scarce in Europe
The inclusion of a corkscrew appears to be a fairly common denominator
Pico Set Model 54-0610, 1992
The knife is very small, blade is just under 2" so its more a pen knife than anything else.
The knife was sold individually with a choice of Black Micarta, Ivory Micarta or faux Mother of Pearl scales, or a shown here in a small leather pouch also containing a very small Mag Light
This is not a belt pouch, more like the sort of thing that would be in a lady's handbag or larger purse.
Satellite Model 220-480, 1992
Nice little lockback that could easily be an EDC pocket knife (as opposed to larger knives that would be carried in a belt pouch)
This one is a bit of a curiosity. I bought it as you see. Nice Piquadro Italian Leather pouch also containing a Schaeffer pen. Neither pouch nor pen are in any way Puma related. It came from a deceased estate, and the seller had no idea how this came about so I guess I'll never know, but the pouch is not a belt pouch, again more like the sort of thing from a Lady's handbag. Anyhow I've kept it together.
