Effective January 1, 2014, MINOX USA, Inc. is the exclusive distributor in the USA for all original PUMA and PUMA IP knives, linking two respected German brands.

For 245 years, PUMA, based in Solingen, Germany, has been synonymous with the highest levels of workmanship and quality. All PUMA and PUMA IP knives feature the highest standards in materials. All combine traditional handmade craftsmanship with modern technology, resulting in a large selection of reliable quality knives any outdoors enthusiast could possibly want.

As has been the case since 1769, all PUMA knives are handmade in Solingen, Germany according to the highest standards set forth by the great German knife making tradition of that city.

PUMA IP (International Production) knives are the result of successful cooperation between PUMA Solingen with selected Spanish partner-manufacturers.

Design, production supervision and quality control is done by PUMA in Germany and the knives are made in Spain. The result is a balanced assortment of hunting knives in the best price-performance ratio.

 “Adding PUMA products to our portfolio further strengthens our presence in the North American hunting and outdoor markets,” said Matt Suuck, director, sales and marketing for hunting/outdoor at MINOX USA, Inc. “Partnering these two great German brands gives our expanding network of retailers even more quality choices to offer their customers.”

“We at PUMA GmbH IP Solingen/Germany are very excited about our new partnership in North America with one of the leading producers of high quality optics,” said Harald Lauer, general manager of PUMA GmbH IP.

“In MINOX we have found the high quality and successful partner that will aggressively expand our distribution network across North America, while properly conveying the 245 year tradition of high quality hunting, fishing and outdoor knives,” Lauer said. “The traditional craftsmanship of PUMA and the cutting edge technology of MINOX form a partnership sure to benefit all hunting and outdoor enthusiasts.”

    This is the fourth distributor of Puma knives in the USA since I became a dealer in 1984. When is Puma going to figure out it`s not the distributor that`s the problem with sales?

      Sales are highly dependent on marketing, as you well know. Being a high ticket item (relatively), Puma is often dismissed as “too expensive”. The greater problem is that Americans have become conditioned to buying cheap crap that does the job…. for a while. Then it’s in the trash and Bubba goes out and buys another piece junk, and does this throughout his life with everything he buys. My father was a master machinist from about 1928 until 1965. He always said buy the best-Starret or Brown&Sharp-

        I have been directed to you by PumaUSA. I have a Rambler model knife. #230455 08/RC. The locking spring has broken and will not lock. Am trying to get warranty replacement. How do I go about it?
