Army Dovehead Sword by Puma Solingen

This Army Dove Head Sword is listed as the Puma Model #3, which is also stamped on the obverse blade ricasso. Maker on the blade is Puma Solingen.

Grip: The grip of this example is a black celluloid over a carved wood base. The celluloid is in perfect condition throughout and is wrapped with triple twisted aluminum wire the center being slightly larger proportioned. This example having 100% gild to the aluminum base hilt. The gilt finish accomplished by Puma is very similar to that used by Voos as well as Clemen & Jung, being brighter than finishes used by other producers. This gives these swords a very “glitzy” appearance and they really look great; this example is no exception. The dove head pommel area has fine raised out oak leafing with acorns which runs down the backstrap and into the two grip tabs. The same motif is repeated on the “P” guard. The ferrule has oak leaves running around its circumference. The detail throughout these leaves is really exceptional and impressive. The crossguard area features a pebbled area which ends in a floraled swirl quillon. The center langet area though is much more elaborate featuring an open-winged army style eagle clutching a wreathed swastika. This eagle really has exceptional detail all being hand applied throughout the eye, breast area, open wing feathering, feathering to the legs and also detail to the wreath.

Blade: The long blade is a high quality example, measuring 81 cm in length. It is nice and bright with mirror nickel-plated finish. This blade shows only the most modest of age signs but still grades in mint condition. As stated above, the obverse ricasso is stamped with the model number “3” and the reverse features the Puma cat head within a diamond with the firm’s name beneath the head and under the diamond is the location, “Solingen”. The original brown leather washer is in place.

Scabbard: The scabbard of this example also has good original paint. There is some age and spidering I the paint but a lot of this could be lessened with a little bit of wax and effort on the next owner’s part. The paint is still 95% and does have some sheen still left in its surfaces.
