"Ackermannchen. Not such a common older Solingen brand, all that I've seen are decorative. No idea what the handle is made of without physically handling it. Some made in Solingen, like this example. Some Heidelberg. Some Italy for Ackermannchen…"

"This has been a great discussion for me so far and provoked more research. Despite having over 100 Puma knives, plus plenty of resources (Old Catalogues, Price Lists, Sales Brochures and Pamphlets etc) and having relied on info from other collectors…"

"OK I queried this with Puma Solingen DRGM and later changed to DBGM (R = Reich as opposed to B=Bund) indicates a German Patent. I always thought that it was a "Standard" but there you go. Just another of those anomalies of older Puma…"

"More info. Most had "Genuine Pumaster Steel Germany" as opposed to "Pumaster Steel"."

Vinnie replied to Jamie Hudson's discussion Puma White Hunter
"OK I knew I had this info somewhere. From Puma.De Solingen (Thanks Julia, Puma Solingen PR/Sales for the translation) The general production models of the White Hunter prior to late 1964 (as opposed to special commissions, limited runs etc) can be…"

"Here's a link. The top left image is of the oldest model (unfortunately it is not mine) https://classicpumaknives.com/white-hunter-pre-64/ Puma didn't introduce the Control Number system (Date Code) until late 1964, so older than that…"

"Also the very early models had a stitched sheath without reinforcing rivets, and a very narrow belt loop, and all have the Puma logo embossed in the leather so your sheath probably isn't original"

"Prince, Model 910, 1974 Second largest of the Aristocrat series (sometimes called the Gold series)  Pretty much the same knife as the Game Warden but with Stag scales. Again not rare but hard to find a mint example like this one at 47 years…"

"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…"

Vinnie replied to Jan Carter's discussion PUMA Collectors in the group BOX FULL OF KNIVES
"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…"

"Just had another look. The 941 lockback is pretty common, but the 1969 Plainsman is a rather scarce model"
