This is an Print Advertising section from different publications over the years. It generally starts out in the early years moving forward. Most of this advertising occurred in publications with broad distribution in such sporting magazines as “Outdoor Life” , “Sports Afield” and ” The American Rifleman”. The Ad Campaigns were paid for by the Gutman Cutlery Company,Inc. They were the exclusive distributor for PUMA in the United States from 1956 to about 1989. The Gutman Company is no longer in business. Their distribution business was bought by Coast Cutlery.
The Advertisements make for some interesting reading. Notice the prices for the knives from the 1960’s and 70’s. If you wanted a wooden gift box, it generally cost you an extra $2.00. At the bottom of each piece you will see the year the Ad was produced in the publication.
This section will grow over time as new interesting advertising pieces are found.
