    Lancee,
    You have a very beautiful collection of utility knives. It is very interesting that the majority have cork screws. But I guess nothing will piss you off more than finding a bottle of wine and not having a way to enjoy it.

    Default Comparing the Original with a Reproduction.

    Greetings all,

    Thought it would be instructive to show an original Puma Brand (top knife) alongside an unmarked modern reproduction (below). Notice the crossguard is noticeably thicker (4mm) on the reproduction versus the original’s (3mm). The original has a blued finish whilst the reproduction is finished in the bright. Lastly, notice on the bottle opener how the reproduction’s opening assist is knurled versus the smooth finish on the original’s.

    I have also attached the handout that came with the reproduction.

    Regards,

    Lance

    I read somewhere that the Pocket knives with corkscrews were known among the troops as "Paris models" ......
