A fine example by Puma! The blade on this one looks great! The acid etched “Puma Solingen” maker mark is dark, crisp and beautifully executed, providing a perfect contrast to the bright blade! The crossgraining is stunning running the full length of the blade, all the way from the hilt to the tip! It has a perfect tip and solid fit! Just the way you want to see them! The blade on this one rates Exc+/Exc++. It shows the slightest evidence of age spotting along with several hits to the edges. The original brown leather buffer pad remains intact. The steel based airplane grey finished scabbard looks great! It depicts beautiful details throughout, with the random pebbling and oak leaves and acorns. It has a small concentration of spotting. It continues to remain completely dent free! The double throat retaining screws continue to remain intact. The aluminum based airplane grey finished crossguard has nice detail to its head, feathers, wings and top side embossed oak leaves and acorns. The steel ferrule and aluminum pommel are both beautifully detailed! There is some of the original gold gilding left to the swastikas, approximately 40%+. The warm orange trylon based grip looks excellent! The odd scuff but no cracks or chips! The springy aluminum wire wrap remains completely intact and tightly secured! A quality piece!
