There were three Defender Models made by PUMA. The Defender, Defender LM and Defender Damast. Both the Defender and Defender LM (Linen Micarta) were limited editions of 500 for each model. The Defender Damast was not a limited edition but it was very expensive and few were made. The actual number is not known. All Defenders are rare and seldom show up in the market but the Damast is rarely ever seen.
The Defender Damast ( Damascus) was made from 300 layers of Schneider Steel , a preeminent damascus steel maker in Germany. Subsequent models including the Cougar were made with 120 layers of imported steel.
