There are a number of PUMA long time fans that have seen the SGB product line as missing the mark when comparing to their normal higher line products.When this beauty arrived it was a delight to behold the design and fit/finish quality. Sierra Trading Post did a professional job of packing, sent a first quality knife (box also as new), and provided this at a low price point. Everybody ought to have a Bobcat for either EDC or as a knife collection box queen (yes, I think it is that nice). Should you be looking for a mid weight folder with very dark Pakka "wood" scales/handsome stag horn inlays with a superb proofed German blade that opens slick and locks tight then this knife will more than satisfy. There are no criticisms to offer. A winner....a keeper. Thanks again to STP for making good values like this happen.

I was skeptical of this knife. Chinese assembled, and wood handles tend to shrink around the steel frame. But, since the blade is Puma Germany, I decided to take a chance. I'm very glad I did. The craftsmanship of the handles is great, and of course the blade is superb. Razor sharp. I'm very pleased and will get another as a gift. Great value.

These German-bladed, Chinese-assembled blades can be a bit hit or miss in their quality. This one was a hit. A good-looking, pocket-folder, defense or utility knife. It came sharp and functions smoothly.
Though the description says this is a spring assist opening knife, it is not. I confirmed this at the Puma website before ordering. The buyer should be aware of this. However, this is not a major problem since it opens easily with one hand and if you just start opening it will flip open easily with a flick of the wrist.
