    Jaison there is no markings or writing on this knife but it is old and well made. I have another very old knife similar but twice as long and is Solingen Germany on blade. I have quite a few really old knives I have bought through time.

    It has an unusual blade style. The bolster, especially. Is the hilt German silver?

    Those forged knives are beautiful for a lot of reasons.

    Exactly! That's it. Good spot.

    (Please ignore the previous mention of forged blades. Lol)

    Beautiful Wicked! The White Hunter is a real treasure especially the older ones with the chromium carbon blades. Yours looks to be in great shape too. Know what year made? Got a Skinner from 1966. About $30 back then if I recall. Heard now they are being made using 440C stainless on many models.

    Real nice knife. Thanks for the taking time and sending it. Looks like the same design as my old knife

    Thanks for the kind words on the Puma. It was (and still is) a very heavy knife. If you look closely at the bottom left side of the blade, it has saw serrations and although it must have a useful purpose, it always seemed to get snagged. It's a pretty knife but it was never useful. But my old USA made Kabar - that was what I liked to carry. Here's one for you, we used to wear them to school and nobody thought anything about it.

    Looks like it would make a great skinner and meat cutter. But vintage Pumas often bringing good money from collectors. Beautiful blades with those stag handles.
