Somebody posted on the Tool Talk Board about Puma Knives. I was just thinking about a puma knife yesterday. Why I don't know. Many years ago I was an Infantry man in Vietnam. I carried a M60 and a puma knife. The 60 was forever tangled in wait-a-minute vines and the puma was was forever getting it out. The sucker held an edge as well if not better then any knife I ever owned. I used it for every thing from openning c-rats (when I lost my p-38) to toasting little slices of canned bread and spreading jelly on my little round toast slices.
When I left Vietnam I passed on the knife with the 60. I have tried to replace the knife with one just like it and other brands, but I have never found one near as good. Wished I could find out what happended to that knife, I hope it served others as well as it served me.

I too am a Vietnam Vet. My Dad sent me a puma knife while i was humping the delta. My knife was riped off when I was processing out of country. I left my knife but I got home. I have been looking for same knife ever since, no luck. Hope better luck for you.

I had a pair of jungle boots that fit good, wore good. A marine got them for me while I was stationed on a hospital ship there. They made good hunting boots when I got home. I have tried several of the imitations later, not the same though. funny how that works.

Darn near everything made for military use is made to what is known as MilSpec's (Military Specifications)which is purty stringent for quality,materials used,etc.
Apply those same standards for everything we use today and you'd need some serious $$$$.

In the end, you will realize that A Puma knife is only good for one thing, the chopping off of your wife's penis.

As for other uses, there are none. Try slicing your own throat with it and dying.
