Chris - Daar is puik messe vir R500 en daar is ook duur messe.

Die Bestech reeks waarvan ek gepraat het sny net so goed soos 'R5000 mes, en die staal is fantasties
Ek dink dit is baie interesanter om vir jouself 'n plafon te stel wat enige mes se koopprys aanbetref. Om dan jou tyd te vat en die beste vir jou plafon prys te koop is moer lekker.
Dit help ook nie jy betaal duur vir 'n mes wat jy nooit gaan gebruik nie.

@Hardy de Kock dalk kan jy bietjie meer lig op ou messe werp wat my oorlede pa nagelaat het. Ek onthou spesifiek die ou Puma, wat deel van sy bakkie cubieŽl was :sip:

Briv - Die Original Bowie en die White Hunter is twee ICON messe van Puma. Hulle maak vandag nog daardie messe op dieselfde manier is in jou Pa se tyd. Hulle gebruik ongelukkig nie meer dieselfde kwaliteit leer as toe nie.
Daar was onlangs 'n Hunting knife poll wereldwyd, waar die White Hunter so ver gewen het as die "Best Hunting knife ever made" dit is nie eers waar nie.
Moet nooit die messe verkoop nie. Kry iemand wat die werk verstaan om die skedes en die messe vir jou mooi te restoureer.
Fok dis mooi.

Nice original Puma's in one of the last posts. You need to hold onto those knives - worth a pretty penny...  Made in Germany since 1956.

I made the mistake of going past my local gun & knife shop in Botha's Hill here in KZN and found a pretty nice affordable folder for less than 600 ZAR. Verry happy with it so far.
Tekut Tiburon - 12C27 Sandvik steel - 96mm blade and feels nice in my hands. Large folder - pointy blade - nice shape in the hand and easy to sharpen vlymskerp. My recently
acquired Puma WH will get moved on as my focus is also more on EDC.

Nice looking folder - I like the "uphill" thumb rest behind the spine.

@ChrisL  - This is what I meant. Great knives does not have to cost an arm and a leg.
