Early slant grip army by Puma w/ aluminum crossguard
Hi guys, here is one of my latest additions to my collection of heer daggers. It's a very nice early army dagger by Puma. It has a personalized crossguard and a great slant grip. It also has the rarely seen aluminum fittings. The hand enhanced crossguard and pommel are great. Just look at the feathers of that bird! The pommel is also very nice. You can tell a lot of work went into that. Enjoy the pictures.

Danny that is a pure gem!!
Funny while we talked about it when you visited me yesterday the dagger arrived at your place.
This a great addition!
Danny those fittings are fantastic! The hand work is really nice. Puma certainly used these aluminum fittings. The Icing on the cake is the killer personalization a potential research project. Great photos BTW

Great looking dagger & very good pics. A joy to see.
Wow Danny that's a beauty.
Yesterday at a local show I looked on Puma with aluminum crossquart and pommel same as yours but with smaller trade mark.
Did they use aluminum on later TM?
here a later trademark with Alu fittings, will post this one in a few weeks
