German PUMA Falknersheil II. Falconer Knife
- Made in Solingen / Germany -
This is a very fine knife for Falconers. The fixed blade falconry knife from PUMA can be used for all work during the hunt. It is extremely handy, the black micarta handle scales are attached with brass rivets. The front and top jaws are also made of brass. We deliver the falknersheil II including a high quality leather sheath.
The falknersheil was developed with the help of several experienced falconers and especially by Horst Niesters in the early 1970s. The blade is designed to chop up food for the birds and to bag the game catched by the falcon. There is a small "blunt" notch in the middle of the cutting edge. It should signal to the falconer that the cutting edge is sharpened from the tip of the blade to this notch. The rest of the blade is blunt to protect the birds of prey.
"With this knife, the PUMA-Werk has developed a falconer's knife from practical experience for practical use. As a professional falconer, I tried it out on the hunt for a wide variety of game species and during daily work in the bird of prey station. With precise requirements and appropriate suggestions for changes I contribute significantly to the design.
The PUMA-FALKNERSHEIL meets all requirements of the practical hunt and falconry business. I wish all falconers joy and good health while running the PUMA FALKNERSHEIL. "
