"Game Warden, Model 970, 1977 Single blade version and a very popular knife. The 970 has been in and out of production a couple of times. I believe it is back in production again. For a size reference it is about the same size as a Buck 110"

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