    Default Luft. 2nd Model dagger by Puma

    Hi Guys,

    Shown below id a Luftwaffe second model dagger that I picked up last year. There are a few small issues with it but I didn't pay a lot for it and I am happy with it.
    As always your comments are appreciated whether good or bad. Thanks, Bob

    A little history about the Puma co. from pumaknifeman.com.

    PUMA-WERK, Lauterjung & Sohn, currently employing about 100 highly qualified staff members, has remained in family ownership since its foundation over 200 years ago. Johann Wilhelm Lauterjung had his first trade mark entered into the renowned Solingen Master Cutlers Guild register as long ago an 1769, before the French Revolution and the invention of the steam engine. Using this trade mark a long and fruitful period of hard-working craftsmanship followed for the founder working together with his son, Johann Wilhelm Lauterjung (1755-1820), and grandson, Nathanael Lauterjung (1784-1839), in a cottage alongside the Wupper river. Solingen's craftsmen had very early learned to harness the water power of the Wupper to drive their grinding stones. In the Lauterjung workshop the first famous knives were, at that time, ground on heavy natural stones. At the beginning of the nineteenth century there were still 93 grinding cottages and six drop-hammer forging shops in operation, for cutlery products, along the Wupper and its seven tributary streams.

    The invention of the steam engine also led to structural changes within the cutlery industry. More and more firms moved into the centre of the then still small town of Solingen.

    Thus Mathanael Lauterjung (1815-1865), a great-grandson of the founder, also moved his company to Solingen. This workshop rapidly expanded so that Ernst Otto Lauterjung (1855-1931) was able to set up the company's first small factory. At that time special care was taken to manufacture various items of cutlery of particularly high quality. The programme included razors, haircutting scissors, pocket knives, but also "cold arms", such as stilettos, hunting knives and sabres. Valuable hand-painted catalogues still convey an impression of this very varied range of cutlery.

    A nice honest example. May have been cleaned at one time.

    beautiful Puma and fantastic photos. Very crisp detail. Still working on that with my camera.

    I think he went 3 for 3 Larry. High Quality Photos being the 3rd! But far be it from me to challenge a Mod
