There’s a new pocket friendly lockback in town and it’s the Puma SGB Whitetail Featherweight. It’s a full-sized, lightweight, and pocket friendly knife you can pick up for about $40.
The Puma brand has a seriously long history that dates to 1769 when they registered the Puma trademark in Solingen. They’ve been making pocketknives since 1876. The SGB line was originally introduced almost a decade ago, which added a budget friendly option to balance their generally higher-end line of knives. There’s a fair amount of history behind this brand and there are a fair few Puma collectors and users out there.
The SGB Whitetail Featherweight has a 3.1” 1.4116 stainless steel clip point blade with a satin finish that easily takes a razor-sharp edge. It’s hollow ground and hardened to a 55-57 HRC. It opens with a straight pull and has jimping along the spine.
The slip resistant G-10 handles are secured with brass pins and accented by a color filled brass shield. The lock up on this lock back is quite good. At 4.4” closed and weighing a mere 2.4 ounces, this knife packs a ton of utility into one pocket friendly package. It has a right carry, tip-up pocket clip and lanyard hole.
