I have been quite lax in my adding of new logos & items but hope to rememdy that. This is an unusual logo & the first time I've seen it on a fire bayonet. Prior to this, I'd only seen the Puma logo in the early version (cat head & name) & the later version (cat head with diamond).

This example is a short model with swedge blade in minty condition & logo on the reverse ricasso. Its hilt is magnetic & solid, nicely heavy in the hand. This is nice because Puma fire bayonets often have nonmagnetic hilts that don't hold their plating well. I would guess it's early production, prior to the introduction of the cat head logo although I'm just guessing. Definitely a keeper.

Hi Alex,

Sorry I missed your post to this thread, very nice lineup. Adding a sawback always adds interest to the group, it looks like an Eickhorn, right?

Can you show us the logos?

Paul,

Sawbacks are always of interest to collectors & seem to have retained much of their value in this soft market.

Puma is a tough one to find as well, looks somewhat early. Is the pommel magnetic?

Great pickup, thanks for sharing it with us!

Paul,

That's a beautiful Puma sawback, it's very hard to find a Puma with that blade. No, it's not a problem to have one with a nonmagnetic pommel. In fact, I've only observed one Puma with a magnetic pommel. That one was super early production with the Puma Werke mark, pictured earlier in this thread.
