Item # 61159 - MARBLES 8 INCH IDEAL-BURL MAPLE HANDLE- W/SHEATH-MADE IN 2002 IN GLADSTONE MI -AN AMERICAN ICON !!!
5_61159_1486450333_1.JPG
More Details

Folk's, when the Lauermans took over Marble's in the mid 1990's, they hired Mike Stewart to head their knife division... They re-created some of the companies most well known & famous knives, and the Marble's Ideal is most certainly on the top of that list !!! Folk's, if you have never had the pleasure to hold one of these big Ideal's in your hand, you cannot imagine what a massive piece of cutlery they are !!! 

Folk's, the Marble's Ideal was the 1st knife in the Marble's lineup...1899 was its birthday, and by 1915 this knife had taken America by storm !!! Explorers from Teddy Roosevelt to Peary & Byrd who were the explorers to reach the north & south poles carried Ideals...Charles Lindbergh spent 1lb of his precious cargo weight to carry a Marble's Ideal, Matchbox, and Compass in the cockpit of the 1st solo Trans-Atlantic flight, now on display in the Smithsonian Institution !!!

By the end of its 3rd decade of production(1930) Marble's had become the world's most famous maker of outing equipment...From pole to pole, around the globe, the Marble's Ideal was the standard by which all other hunting knives were measured !!!

Folk's, look around the web and knife shows you attend, there is just not that many new Ideal's for sale...alot of old vintage ones, but very few of the newer 1998-2003 rebirth era at the company, with Mike Stewart there from 1997 till 2002, then after Craig Lauerman sold out the company in 2003-4,,,these 7-8 years was some of the best produced knives in their 111 yr history,, bar none !!! The reason I heard for the Ideal shortage was that it was to expensive to machine the big fuller in the knife blade, costing 20 bucks a knife on the larger Ideal blades like the 7 & 8 inch models,,  and that the cutting tool having to be replaced often, was very costly... they were just not made in large run quantaties at all folk's,, "sales pitch be darned", just fact !!! I am very pleased that I can offer an Ideal such as this for sale !!!

This is the Marble's 8" Ideal

This is a 1/2 Guard / 1/2 Hilt Ideal

Knife is 13" OAL with a 8" blade

Big heavy Brass guard/hilt to prevent accidents during heavy cutting/choping camp chores

Blade has the massive fuller in it thats makes the Ideal instantly reconized

Blade is deeply struck stamped Marble's with their Banner stamp...blade is made of 1070-6C high carbon Vanadium steel... 1/4 inch thick !!!

Knife was made in 2002 per spacer system used at Marble's from 1997-2002

Handle is Gorgeous Burl Maple,,,really pretty when you get it in the sun light and can see all the swirls in the wood

 Comes with its Original Marble's stamped oil tanned leather sheath and it has the **internal cutguard** that prevents slicing your sheath putting the blade in & out

Condition: Brand New...never used or carried, or dislpayed

Please supersize pics on the next page for a close-up look at one, if not thee, most famous knives ever made & one of the last of these big Ideals I have for sale

5_60966_1485470100_1.JPG
More Details

Folk's...I got a little knife for ya all here that is just a Rare find with its Original Pigskin leather sheath...these knives were used back in the day...as were the sheaths...very few sheaths survived over the years,, as they were left in tackle boxes and such and just fell apart over the years from not being cared for proper....

This is the second model Trout knife Marble's made and you can tell that buy the the tapered top edge of the knife...early models were flat all the way across and the later 2nd model had the taper to the point of the blade tip...This knife has the clear distinction of being the "Only" 1 Piece knife that Marble's had ever made !!! Its a gem of a little knife with the ring on the end and was used just as it was intended to use when it was designed !!!

This is the Marble's Trout Knife

Knife is 5 9/16" OAL

Blade is 2" in length

End of knife has the round ring for easy holding & using of the knife

Knife is stamped: Marble's in the center of the handle and you can see the stamp in a close-up in the pics provided

Condition: knife is in Outstanding condition, harly no blade loss to speak of ...a few scratches on the front side of blade that you can see in pics, off side is very good and the whole knife still has a shine to it

The sheath is Pigskin Leather with a metal edge all the way around the sheath...***Note*** These sheaths are very rare to find,,especially in this wonderfull condition...there were very few survivors from this era ...and... if you look on page 97 of Arni's Encyclopedia of Marble's Sporting Collectibles...this sheath here is in better shape than the one in the book !!!

Sheath Condition: Amazing...almost perfect..no tears, solid, hard to believe it is that good after 80 plus years !!! See pics and judge for yourself

Item # 60924 - MARBLES STAG on STAG TRAIL MAKER W/ SHEATH - TRANSITION MODEL STAMP-SCARCE- A MARBLES LEGEND !
5_60924_1485210863_1.JPG
More Details

Folk's, the Trailmaker has 3 distinctions within the Marble's Corp.

(1) It is the biggest knife Marble's ever made at 15" OAL in their storied history

(2) It is the heaviest at over 1 LB

(3) And it was the most expensive knife ever offered in their line

Webster Marble being an inventor supreme, was allways trying to come up with the perfect outdoor tool. The same way he invented a small axe...the safety axe...that could do the work of a large knife...he tried too make a large knife that would do the work of an axe...his answer was the Trailmaker !!! He was quoted as saying: there is no one cutting tool that will serve as many purposes as the Trail Maker...He came up with the name TrailMaker from a then common practice of marking trails by cutting bark off the side of trees and following the marked trees out !!!

This is a Transition Model Traimaker...Note the stamp,,etched instead of the regular stamp with USA added in 2006....from what info I have been told, this stamp was used only a short peroid of time with the etched USA & Banner stamp on it in late 2005 to very early 2006 before their regular stamp was made and put into use..making this a Transition Model knife

This is the Marble's TrailMaker

Knife is 15" OAL with a 10" blade

Knife is etched stamped: Marble's with the Banner stamp over USA

Blade is a massive .250 thousands thick... a full 1/4" thick of high carbon blade vanadium steel !!!

Handle is Gorgeous Genuine Stag, as is the pommel, full Stag on Stag pattern tradition at Marbles for over 100 yrs..., Wow, what a great feeling knife in the hand for such a huge knife !!! Stag is nice and thick and has great character all the way around the handle !!!

Comes with its Original Marble's stamped deep oil tanned  leather sheath...sheath has the Internal Cut Guard that is so important with these big blade knives so you do not slice your sheath taking the knife in and out...Sheath is Brand New condition

Condition: Knife is in New condition, never carried or used

Please supersize pics on the next page for a close-up look at this massive Marble's TrailMaker, a Marble's legend !!!

Item # 60855 - MARBLE'S 4 PIN STAG DROP POINT HUNTER-24K GOLD ETCH CUSTOM DUCKS UNLIMITED-W/SHEATH-BOBCAT BOX-NICE!
5_60855_1484506682_1.JPG
More Details

Folk's, I have Marble's books from 1997 thru 2004, I have scoured them all and cannot find this pattern blade in any of them !!! I assume this is a Custom order for the folk's at Ducks Unlimited...the 4 pin construction, and the color of the Stag (rare for Marble's) resembles the color of stag on some Custom knives that were made for AG Russell in Arkansas in 2001...so...I believe that while them knives were being made, Ducks Unlimited slipped in this special order to Mike Stewart & Craig Lauerman for this particular knife.....

Its a great drop point hunter, has a very generous area at the Choil that you could go past the guard and do some surgeon like cutting chores with it....it also boasts a 24 K Gold Etch of their Logo on the front of the blade....add in the 4 pin build of the stag slabs, and Wow, you have a very special Marble's knife in your hand !!!

This is the Custom Stag Drop Point Hunter made for Ducks Unlimited

Knife is 8 1/4" OAL

Blade is 3 7/8" just shy of 4"....blade has 24K Gold etch and is made of 52/100 B high carbon ball bearing steel that took several top spots in the ABS World Cutting Championships

Handle is just gorgeous gold color stag, deep grooves with tons of stag bark in it, not seen very often a Marble's knife with this color stag...stag slabs put together with the time tested 4 pin construction, beautifull !!!

Has brass guard and pommel is aircraft alumunum

Knife is stamped: Marble's Gladstone Mi. U.S.A. with their full address and was made in Gladstone Michigan in 2001, per spacer pattern on knife, a Stewart /Lauerman era knife

Comes with top shelf quality Marble's stamped Leather sheath in the old Bobcat box

Knife is New in Box condition, never carried or sharpened as is the sheath

Item # 60850 - ANTIQUE MARBLE'S GLADSTONE MICH NO.5 SAFETY AXE- WOOD HANDLE- PRE WW2-SUPER SCARCE AXE-PAT'ND 1898
5_60850_1484502638_1.JPG
More Details

Folk's, Webster Marble went to New York in febuary of 1899 with a stash of Safety Axes he had made up along with his Ideals, Matchboxes, etc. to set up a booth at the new York Sportsman show...the guy next too him was a fella named Bean...ie LL Bean & Co.....he told Marble that he stayed up all night long with the intent to beat the Safety Axe idea...He then told him frankly, *it could not be done*......you never should loose any sleep Mr Marble about anyone improving your method of construction !!

Webster Marble's favorite tie pin was a miniature Safety Axe. He not only was very proud of his invention, but because too Marble, an axe symbolized a woodsman. He thought axe's could preform most task's a knife could,and a whole lot more. This axe is what brought worldwde fame to W. L. Marble, and made the Marble Safety Axe Co. a household name. It also put Gladstone, Michigan, on the map forever in American Cutlery History !!!

This is the Marble's Safety Axe, NO. 5

Axe is 10 3/4" OAL with app. 4 1/2" long head.. with a  2 1/4" cutting edge....this is a  hawk style head, 3 hole top design w/wedge

Head is stamped: Marble's with the 2 Line Axe Stamp... Gladstone, Mich. USA, No. 5

Blade guard is stamped: Marble Arms & MFG. CO. Gladstone, Mich. U.S.A. PAT'D 1898

Age: post 1918 - 1940 discontinued just before WW2,,, I believe this axe to be late 1920's to early 1930's because of info from previous owner  could remember that his Uncle told him...this axe came from the UP of Michigan...so I believe you all are looking at a 85 plus yr old axe

Condition: Very Good to low Excellent in my opinion, head tight, guard fits tightly on blade edge & moves freely,,,guard has good spring to it, hardly no blade edge loss at all..head still has a shine to it..***very small crack line just below head*** you can see it in pics..look at pic with a close-up of head & stamp, bout 2 inches below head...everything on this axe is all tight, I feel no problem, just letting you know all I can on such an old Vintage piece

Please supersize the pics on the next page for a close-up look at one of the most storied pieces that was ever made in American Cut. history...it was also the corner stone of the M.S.A. companies start that made Webster Marble a household name !!!

There is about as much difference between our Ideal Hunting knives and any other knife... as there is between a porcupine & a grizzly bear !!!

This is Marble's 1st knife pattern.

By the end of its 3rd decade of production, (1930) from Pole To Pole, around the globe, the Marble's Ideal was the hunting knife that by which all others were measured !!!

More Details

Folk's, do I have a little brute for ya here in the shape of a Marble's knife !!! This is the Marble's Trailcraft, a New pattern that came out in 2000 under the Lauerman / Mike Stewarts peroid at Marble's... I have not seen any Trailcrafts past the year 2002, this knife being a 2002 made knife, so with the Trailcraft a brand new pattern for the year 2000, its my opinion this pattern Marble's knife is very limited quantities folk's, and this one is a GameGetter !!! This knife was carefully engineered to be a Brute of a knife in a compact package !!! The profile curve of the blade results in fast, efficient cutting power from the choil to the point, and with the choil area big enough to grip, so you can maximize edge control for super fine cutting chores...on the top side of this pattern, the backspine of the blade tapers from the point back to the hilt, you can exert extra pressure on it for heavy cutting chores like joints in big game critters !!! The handle is very generously proportioned to give you great power in such a small package, and the ergonomic design of this Gamegetter line is a super, well thought out line of knife handle designs !!! It sure is to become one of your favorite knives for all your field chores !!!

This is the Marble's CoCobolo GameGetter Trailcraft

Knife is 8" OAL with a 3 1/2" blade

Knife is stamped: Marble's with their Banner stamp (2002)

Handle is nice Cocobolo wood, 2nd hardest wood in the world, nice grains and a ergonomic handle shape that takes fatigue out of the picture during long usage affairs !!!

Has a Brass guard / hilt

Comes with Marble's Original stamped oil tanned leather "Flap Over" sheath...this style sheath was used during the 2000-2001 era, only a few left-overs were issued in 2002,  they are extremely thick leather, internal cut guard inside, and enough room to put a thin stone, and fire starter inside, a whole survival package all in one pouch folk's if you so desire !!!

Knife is new in the Original box, never carried or used, as is the sheath

Please supersize pics on the next page for a close-up look at one of the slickest little pattern knives that ever rolled out of the old Gladstone factory,,,and I feel, a real value in price,, quality,, and a real unique piece of culery !!!

Folk's, I have sold 100's of Marble's knives over the yrs. I have had several request's over the yrs about selling Marble's Compasses & Waterproof Match Box's. I have decided to start letting a few of these 2 items go to other Marbles collector's around the country... All my Match Box's & Compasses are Antique / Vintage

 Marble's Waterproof Match Box History : Webster Marble found out about 1898 that a 12 gauge empty shot shell was a slip fit inside a 10 gauge. He then turned his discovery into his match box. He made supporting arms to the 10 gauge, and used the 12 gauge as the container. Collar was threaded to recieve the outside thread allowing the container to be screwed in to close, out to open. Add a rubber washer to inside cover, knurl the outside to strike a match on it, and it became a foolproof design. The Marble's Water Proof Match Box became World Famous !!!

 Explorers & Aventurers from Teddy Roosevelt to Admiral Peary & Byrd who were on quests to the North & South pole carried Marble's, Gladstone, Mich. compasses & match boxes. Charles Lindbergh on his historical flight across the ocean, spent 1lb of his precious cargo limit to carry a Marbles Ideal knife, a Marbles compass, & Marbles Match Box. They are all on display in "The Smithsonian Institution"

 Marble's made 6 model's in 5 body styles. 1st model was made & patented in 1900

ALL Marble's Match Box tool & dies were destroyed by Marble's Corp. in the turn of the last century, 2000

This is a Marble's Waterproof Match Box - 6th model, produced from 1933-1970

This particular box has the "Bail" for several carrying options

Box is 2 1/2" in height & about the size of a Quarter in diameter

Bottom is Stamped : Marble's, Gladstone, Mich. U.S.A. Pat'd 1900

This Match Box is in Excellent + condition, looks like it was used very little, and this box was found in a cabin in Northern Minnesota,,,I just love getting all the info I can out of folk's on these old Marble's Outing pieces & where they came from, very interesting to me !!!

Item # 60525 - MARBLE'S GLADSTONE MICH USA # 9 BELT AXE- 1998-STEWART ERA REMAKE- 1085 FORGED STEEL-SUPER NICE !!!
5_60525_1480440588_1.JPG
More Details

Well folk's, back in 1898 it was named the Marble Safety Axe Co.,,, their main business was axes, when the Lauermans & Mike Stewart decided to create a remake of one of their axes, the # 9 was the obvious choice, their most poular selling belt axe of the time...its a fast handling axe, and had more leverage than their legendary Safety Axe to handle medium camp chores...Notice the handle, a "Goats Foot" style butt that allowed the user to hold the axe at the very bottom to maximize chopping power...

This # 9 Axe was faithfully re-produced by the Marble's staff with its pre-1911 flanged formed head !!! It has the look of the 19th century axe !!! They stamped it with their post-1912 Banner stamp...this was done so there was no mix up with the pre-1911 # 9 so there was no confusion for collectors with the vintage # 9

This is the Marble's # 9 Belt Axe

Head is stamped: Marble's Gladstone, Mich. U.S.A.  Belt Axe # 9

Axe is 14" OAL

Cutting edge is 2 3/4"

Head is 4 1/2" and is .750 inch in thickness

Hardness is 48-50 Rockwell C

Steel is "Forged" 1085 high carbon

Handle is American Hickory...W/ Goats Foot bump out for extra chopping power

Weight is 24 ounces

Comes with a Marble's belt axe head cover...Head cover has a few scuffs on it, but nothing to effect the way it was suppose to be used...***Important*** Never store your axe or knives for that matter in the leather sheaths...Oxidation happens very fast...I do not even ship any Axes or Knives in leather holders because of this fact !!!

Condition, Near Mint... appears to be handled a bit, but it does not look to me like its ever been sharpened, axe looks doggone near New

Item # 60271 - MARBLES GLADSTONE MICH NATURAL BONE COWBOY KNIFE-W/SHEATH-4 PIN CONSTRUCTION-VERY USER FRIENDLY !!!
5_60271_1479070129_1.JPG
More Details

Folk's, I have a really unique knife that Marbles made app. 11-13 years ago for ya....

This is the Marbles Cowboy knife. This knife was created by Marbles as an historical replica of some of the old west pattern knives of the 1800's. It is used in Cowboy shooting circles where they dress the peroid & compete in Cowboy action shooting compititions. Also used in alot of old west re-enactments. Very, very, unique design, coffin handle, like the old western bowies and kinda on the scarce side.

I have this knife in Stag handles,,,it was a Marble Plus knife club issue...I just had to get it in the field... Deer season was coming up so up north it went with me...Wow !!! what a surprise !!! Makes no matter if you are opening up a a deer, elk, etc. with the double hilt you would not believe how responsive this knife is !!! Guttin inside or opening up the cavity, or skinning the hide off, this knife is extremly well balanced and extremly user friendly !!! In my opinion, this knife for practical field use is the most underated Marble's knife they ever made, sales pitch be darned, just fact, a real sleeper here folk's !!!

This is the Marbles Cowboy knife

Knife is 9" OAL

Blade is 4 1/4" in length

Blade is stamped : Marbles, with their Banner stamp,high carbon vanadium steel, brushed finish

Blade is patterned like the Plainsman, it is straight spinned and in-line with the handle...the cutting edge itself is a slow continuous curve from the hilt to the point, making surgical type cuts possible with this design !!!!

Handles are huge Natural Smooth Bone,,, The Bone slabs are just really neat, you do not see such huge chunks of flawless Bone like these very often,  just wonderfull color streaked thru them,, handle is shaped in the Old West Coffin shape, a very popular design back in the day... Labor intensive & flawless. Held on with the old Marbles 4 pin construction

Knife was made in Gladstone, Mich. USA at the old Marbles factory

Big Double Brass Hilt / Guard seperating handle and blade....very nice

Comes with deep oil tanned Original Marbles Cowboy sheath

Knife is New in Box condition***Please note*** there is a fine small surface seasoning line in the back handle, no big deal just letting you know of it

Knife & Sheath come in Original issue Marble's box with proper sticker on the end

Please supersize the pics on the next page for a close-up look at this very different Marbles knife !!!
