 Folk's, ya just have to have one of these Big 7" Ideal's in your hand to appreciate what a massive piece of cutlery that they are...Webster Marble fancied the big blade knives early on in Marble's storied history and allways carried a big Ideal or Trailmaker in his timber cruising excursions !!!

5_52652_1430153242_1.jpg
More Details

I have a very seldom seen Custom Marble's Stag Trailmaker for ya folk's...it was made in 1999 when the Lauermans / Stewart era at the Marble's Corp. was just starting to hit their stride with some of the very best knives that ever rolled out of the Gladstone factory !!! You see the 7 1/4" blade Trailmakers from time to time, but not with the 1 piece Stag handle and no pommel,,this is Gladstone Michigan Custom build all the way!!! I just attended the 4-25-15 Wolverine Knife show last weekend for a few hours before they were busy and open to the public,,, and "did not" see 1(one) Marble's knife new of any kind made from 1998-2008 at any of the dealers set up there, I was shocked to say the least at a 400 table show !!! This knife also comes with the western Loop style sheath that was only used on the early Trailmakers after the Lauermans purchased Marble's, quality all the way...the big blade Trailmakers were W.L.Marble's personal favorite, carried often in his timber crusing expeditions...guess we have the Lauermans & Mike Stewart to thank for bringing this pattern back, only taking it up a notch with the Custom handle !!! And what a chunk of Stag it is, would ya look at that knarly Stag, very, very deep grooves and character in the Stag, the "Best" I have ever had on this pattern knife !!!

This is the 1999 Marble's Custom Stag Trailmaker

Knife is 12 1/4" OAL

Blade is 7 1/4"

Condition: knife is brand new, never carried or used, "a few lite pepper spots tword the tip of the blade on the front side"

Handle is a massive 1 piece of genuine Stag, nice mellow deep brown color on the bottom with good deep lines of stag bark all the way around the handle, alot of spots that look like candle dripping on em, just gorgeous stag, pretty hard to beat in my own opinion !!!

Blade is custom 5160 modified high carbon steel, 57 -59 Rockwell C...  .250 inch thick

Nice brass half guard / hilt finshed off with the Marble's spacer system showing made in 1999

Comes with the older western style Loop type holster sheath with Marble's stamping in the leather & keeper snap button, Original sheath to this knife

No box, as these era & size knives came in just a white carboard box with no marking

Marble's compasses were simply the prefered choice for several early explorers & adventurers mapping the planet and were world renowned !!!

For all of WL Marble's fame as a knife & axe maker, he thought his compasses & match box's were his greatest contributions to the sportsman. People around him often tired of him saying: No sportsman should go into the woods without a compass...No woodsman would think of it !!!

5_52029_1424886977_11.jpg
More Details

Well folk's,,, here it goes, Ahhhh !!! I have a knife for ya all here folk's that is like "no other" Marble's knife that was ever made in their history from 1898-2009,, 111 yrs !!! I have only seen 2 of these knives surface in the last 18 yrs since it was made !!! One on ebay, and one at the Dave Shirley estate auction...and believe me, I am constantly in touch with other Marble collectors in Michigan & thruout the country !!!

When Mike Stewart came to take over the knife operation at Marble's in 1997 from BlackJack knives, he brought a little something with him... Now this is the way I heard it and it would be great if Mike would chime in on this statement and correct me if there is anything amiss !!! 

Mike had a project at BlackJack knives to make some Bowies for the American Historical Foundation...commemorating the cival war, 1 knife was to be made with the Union blade etch & have a Ornate Gold plated guard,,,another with the Confederate blade etch and plated with a Silver Ornate guard...Mike researched it and always had a fondness for the WW 2 V-44 Bowie blade pattern, believing that this pattern big blade knife was still a very, very, usable knife...

Once settled in as the bossman at Marble's, he told the Lauemans of the blades he had designed,,,Marble's then decided to use these blades and guards and finish them all up with Stag handles on them...129 were sold to Dave at Bowie Corp. and 1 was left at Marble's in the showcase...so,, this knife is 1 of 130 known to have been made, it is museum quality, high polished, fileworked, silver plated ornate hilt/guard, stag handle,,, yet,,, it has the full Marble's address used at time of manufactured !!!

This is the Marble's Bowie

Knife is 15 1/8" OAL

Blade is 9 1/8"

Knife is stamped: Marble's Gladstone, Mi. U.S.A.

It has a full/double ornate hilt that is heavily Silver plated

Knife is "New" never carried or sharpened

Comes with a Bowie type period leather sheath that came with the knife when I purchased it, no box

This is a museum piece of cutlery thats very seldom seen folk's,,,so supersize the pics on the next page for a close-up look at a Marble's knife like no other in their 111 yr history !!!

5_52026_1424816834_1.jpg
More Details

 

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

Folk's, this is indeed a very scarce compass to run up on...and in its Original Package, Pre - Zip Code Era - 1950's to early 1960's stamped: Marble Arms, Seldom seen White Face, this outfit has alot goin for it Marble's collectors !!! And to add a big touch of personal setiment to it, its from the late Dave Shirleys estate that was sold at auction a few yrs back,, RIP Dave !!!

Marbles compasses have been carried to the far corners of the globe. To the 1st expeditions to the north and south pole by Peary & Byrd, Teddy Roosevelts expiditions deep in the Amazon & Africa...Charles Lindberg carried a Marble's Ideal, Compass, & Matchbox on the 1st trans-atlantic flight that is now displayed in the Smithsonian Institution!!! Marble's compasses were simply the prefered choice for several early explorers & adventurers mapping the planet and were world renowned !!!

For all of WL Marble's fame as a knife & axe maker, he thought his compasses & match box's were his greatest contributions to the sportsman. People around him often tired of him saying: No sportsman should go into the woods without a compass...No woodsman would think of it !!!

This is a Marble Arms Brass Pin-On Short Tang Coat Compass

It is the "Revolving Needle" model

Also has the very hard to find White Face on it

Item # 51802 - MARBLE'S AMBER BONE IDEAL - W/SHEATH - NIB-GLADSTONE MICH.USA - AN AMERICAN ICON !!!
5_51802_1422700999_1.jpg
More Details

 

Folk's, this Ideal Hunting knife made back in early 2002 is really becoming harder & harder to find,, this particular knife had to be one of the 1st ones made in 2002 because Marble's was still using the big heavy flap over sheath with this knife that was used during the 1999-2001 era,,, this is a good heavy hunting knife & sheath combo folk's, a fact you will soon realize when you get this outfit in your hand !!!

This is Marble's 1st knife pattern. Prototyped in 1899 in the 1st versions, and by 1901, this Marble's Ideal pattern took America by storm !!! It was in the cockpit on the 1st trans-atlantic flight, carried by explorers worldwide on expeditions to every corner of the world !!! 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 !!!

Folk's, look around the web and knife shows you attend, there is just not very many traditional Marble's Bone scaled Ideal's with aluminum pommels too be had out there, with all the huntin I do for Marble's knives, "sales pitch be darned", I consider this particular Ideal to be on the scarce side !!!

Knife was made in 2002 as shown in spacer pattern in Gladstone, Michigan, U.S.A. at the old Marble's factory

Knife is 8 3/4" OAL

Blade is 4 1/4"

This is a half Guard / Hilt Ideal

Blade is Stamped: Marble's with their Banner stamp...this knife was made in 2002

Blade is brushed finish high carbon. Ideals are 1st recognized by the Huge Fuller on each side. Heavy brass guard and the famous Marble's spacers.

It is handled in Genuine Jigged Amber Bone, nice lines on both sides, good character, very nice "heft" to this knife and its extremely comfy in the hand,,,.... it is built to use a life time, then will it to your grandkids !!! 

Also has the Original Marble's deep oil tanned "Flap Over" thick leather sheath with internal cut guard, nice feature so you do not slice your sheath taking it in and out,,, this sheath is a hunk folk's, in my opinion, 1 of the very best Marble's made with its design to protect the whole knife without ever slipping out

Whole package comes to you in Original Marble's box with proper markings on end of box

It is New in box condition

Please supersize the pics on the next page for a close-up look at one of the most famous pattern fixed blade hunters ever made in American Cut. History !!!

Last One !!! I was lucky enough to get my hands on 10 of these knives folk's,, this is the last of the 1 0f 300 Outers pattern that I have for sale !!!

Folks, I have a really special Marbles knife for ya here. It is reproduction taken to new heights. This is the Marbles Outers knife. This was produced at the Marbles Custom Shoppe in Gladstone Mich. USA back in 2003. This is the first time this knife has been produced since the start of World War 2 and with Marbles going out of busniess, likely the last !!! This Outers knife because of its size and blade shape would make a great affordable hunting knife with the 1095 carbon steel blade !!!

This is such a special knife for the Marbles Corp. because from 1932 to the start of the 2nd world war, this knife virtually was made and sold for $1.00, and staved of the demise of the Marbles Corp. all during the Great Depression !!! Some historians confer Marble's would have went bankrupt if not for the sales of the Outers knives !!!

This is the Marbles Outers pattern knife

Knife is 7 1/2" OAL

Blade is 4" in length

Blade has etch on it: 1 of 300 - Off side is etched: Custom 2003

Blade is 1095 Carbon Steel, which is very easy to hold a great edge

Knife has a "double" integral hilt

Blade is stamped with the rare turn of the century stamp: M.S.A. Co. Gladstone Mich. USA

Knife is full tang construction

Scales are really pretty Jig Red Bone, a classic choice for scales on pocket & fixed blade knives back in the 1930's era

Also comes with a deep oil tanned "Double Stamped" leather sheath. Stamped: Marble Trade Mark on the front and Marbles on the back, also a unique feature

The whole package comes to ya New in Original Marbles Box, and the box has some oil stains on the bottom from when these knives were oiled and packed at the Marbles Custom Shoppe
