    In my personal experience, images from use with a Puma knife are relatively rare.

    So here's a soldier in a trench on the eastern front with a Puma knife in his back pocket to complete the story.

    A hard to find knife spacially in this condition
    Are you sure that the pic’s knife is a Puma?

    Teardrop-shaped, curved handle shape and the thick quillons speak for it.

    The Infanteriemesser 42 had a rather straight handle with a very fine crossguard.

    IMO, it is possible the photo shows one of these.

    Hi there,

    no i don't think its right...

    The Puma knife and the picture dates to the period of the Second World War.

    This is a WWI trench knife.
    The guard is much thinner but longer on the left and right and looks like this:

    The photomontage doesn't really say much either.


    Even in the enlargement, I can only see a smooth teardrop-shaped handle of the Puma knife.

    I agree Sleepwalker, most likely a Puma knife on that first picture.
    I see a rounded disk guard instead of the curved angled ones of the WW1.

    Another great post!

    Hello Sleepwalker.
    Yes you are right in your original comment, there are 3 different markings on Pumas + one that has no marking.
    For the foureau, one can rarely encounter a ring at the level of the clip.
    As far as I'm concerned, I only saw one, but I wasn't quick enough to buy it.
    In any case I congratulate you on your Puma, it is a very beautiful piece.
    Phil.
