Item # 49640 - EARLY (2002) MARBLES NATURAL BONE SPORT DROP POINT HUNTER- W/SHEATH- BOB LOVELESS DESIGN-VERY NICE !
5_49640_1409423134_1.jpg
More Details

 

This pattern Marble's knife came too pass in 1999, when Mike Stewart, Jim & Craig Lauerman, and the late great Bob LoveLess set down to make a new pattern Marble's hunting knife,,, its blade being based on the world famous R.W. LoveLess designed drop point hunter... Marble's collaborated with Bob LoveLess on their Sport 99's and their Trailmaker knives in 1999-2001... This is one of my favorite Marbles hunting knives. This is the Marbles Sport... A similar Marble's knife pattern called the Sport 1st came out about 1930, as a smaller version of the Expert. In the 1930's, this knife was the Offical knife of the Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts of America. Its a great drop point hunter, and some of the oldtimer's I have talked to here in Michigan use to call this pattern a Willow Leaf...any of you out there that are "Drop Point" fans, will love this knife !!! 

This is the Marble's Sport Natural Bone drop point Hunter

Knife is 8" OAL

Blade is 3 5/8"

Blade is stamped: Marbles,with their banner stamp, is high carbon, brushed finish... (Note) look at how deeply struck the stamp is from this early 2002 knife, all the  other years, 2003-2005, even late 2002's were way lighter struck, and this knife is very early because Marble's was still using the Bobcat box with the Sport, Natural Bone sticker on the end of it  

Scales are Genuine thick gorgeous Natural Bone, good character on both sides of the Bone slabs 

Pommel is aircraft aluminum

Comes with original Marble's leather sheath, with internal cut guard too prevent sliceing your sheaths while taking the knife in and out...very nice design feature

Condition: Knife is new in the Marble's Bobcat box, has never been used or carried, as is the sheath 

Please supersize pics on next page for a close-up look at this great Bone scaled drop point hunter

Item # 49639 - MARBLES WATERPROOF MATCH BOX - SCARCE RIBBED 5th MODEL 1928 -1940 FROM THE 1928-32 GIFT SET !!!
5_49639_1409358859_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

Collector's *** This box I am guessing is from 1928-1930 because in the early 30's Marble's knurled the supporting arms with a match striker on them, they did not do that on the 1st couple ribbed 2 piece Outing sets gift  boxes,,,***You would not believe how much smoother these boxes like the 4th & early 5th screw open and closed compared to the later ones,,,their threads being die cut, instead of pressed collar threads ***

 Marble's Waterproof Match Box History : Webster Marble found out about 1898 that a12 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 - 5th model, produced from 1928-1940

This is the "Ribbed" model made only for their Outing Gift sets,,,this is the "Only" product specifically designed for the gift sets, All other products were regular production !!!

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 Very Good Plus condition, see pics, a few very small boogers

Please supersize pics on the next page for a close-up look at one of the Marble's Corp most important inventions in their history !!!

Stamped in the leather is the old Marble's trademark

Item # 49482 - MARBLE'S CUSTOM 1999 STAG TRAILMAKER - W/SHEATH-NEVER USED -HUGE 1 PIECE STAG HANDLE-SCARCE KNIFE
5_49482_1408474075_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 custom build !!! When I purchased this knife it did not have any sheath with it, so I bought a stamped Marble's deep oil tanned leather sheath that just fits it like a glove...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 !!!

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

Knife is laser etched stamped: Marble's Gladstone Mi U.S.A. with the full Marble's address

Handle is a massive 1 piece of genuine Stag, nice mellow color with good deep lines of stag bark all the way around the handle...on the off side of the handle, there is a tiny spot of pink color that can be seen in pics, maybe a spot of ink that got on the stag some yrs back

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

This is the smaller Trailmaker that Marble's produced, just a cuttin machine !!!

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

Comes with a deep oil tanned stamped Marble's leather sheath, also brand new, never used...it has the internal cut guard inside that prevents slicing your sheath with these big blade knives, very nice feature !!!

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

Please supersize the pics on the next page for a close-up look at this massive piece of cutlery !!!

Folk's, do I have a little gem 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 Mike Stewarts tenure at Marble's...I have not seen any Trailcrafts much past the year 2004, this knife being a 2002 made knife, very limited quanties on this pattern folk's, and this one is Stag/Stag !!! 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 !!! It sure is to become one of your favorite knives for all your field chores !!!

This is the Marble's Stag on Stag Trailcraft

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

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

Handle is nice heavy thick Genuine Stag, bit of Stag bark on both sides, and the pommel is also Stag,   this Stag/Stag design has been made at Marble's for over 100 years !!! Stag color is more mellow than the pics show, sunlight has washed it out a bit in pics

Item # 48865 - MARBLES 3 PIECE OUTING SET- IDEAL- MATCHBOX - COMPASS - HISTORIC 3 PIECE SET OF OUTING EQUIPMENT !!!
5_48865_1403546399_1.jpg
More Details

I saw my 1st Marble's 3 piece Outing gift set back in the early 1960's and was just taken back at it as a young lad...reckon that is what got me interested in Marble's knives, axes, and products,,,so.....

Folk's, I figured I would put this set together because of the historic implications it had on the United States of America in the very early 1900's in the exploration of our planet, engineering feats, and the safety it brought too those early explorers...For all of Webster Marble's fame as a knife & axe maker, he thought his waterproof matchbox and compass were his greatest contribution to the American sportsman...as quoted from famous arctic explorer Capt. George R. Conner,, W. L. Marble axes, knives, compasses, matchboxes  could be found from the heart of Africa to the depth of the Amazon rain forest....Peary & Byrd on their quest to be the 1st to the North & South poles carried them,,,Charles Lindbergh used up 1 lb of his cargo weight limit to carry a Marble's Ideal, Compass, and Waterproof Matchbox on the 1st solo Atlantic crossing, all 3 of them are proudly on display in the Smithsonian Institution !!! Teddy Roosevelt was a regular Marble customer...when his party became lost during an Amazon Exploration, it was Marble's Gladstone Michigan compases that guided them safely back to camp !!! It is also well documented that Marble's waterproof Matchboxes played a pivitol role in the building of the Panama Canal from 1904 -1914...moisture was such a problem that one of the 1st things issued to folk's involved in this Gigantic undertaking was a Marble's waterproof Matchbox !!! Thus, that it why I thought I would put these 3 pieces of Marble's Outing Equipment together for the history interested Marble collector !!!

This is a 3 piece Marble's Outing Equipment Gift Set

Includes :

1- Marbles Micarta handle Ideal...1 of 150 made

1- Vintage Marble's Waterproof Matchbox

1- Vintage Marble Arms #186 Short Tang Coat Compass

Knife is a 2003 Black Micarta scales Ideal...knife is 8 3/4" OAL with a 4 1/4" high carbon, brush finished blade...blade is stamped: Marble's with their Banner stamp, it is also etched: First Production Run...1 of 150,,,  aluminum pommel, put together with the age old Marble's spacer system

Matchbox is a 6th Model with the bail on it for easy handling...this model had pressed collar threads, made 1933-1970, it is stamped: Marble's Gladstone Mich. U.S.A. Pat'd 1900....and, as can be seen in the enlarged pics, it looks mint, like it was never used, exceptional shape

Compass is a #186, short tang coat compass.... stamped: Marble Arms...the compass is also exceptional condition and in fine working order, Gladstone Michigan made

Knife comes with what I believe was the most top shelf deep oil tanned sheath that was ever offered at Marble's....thick oil tanned leather, a sharpening stone pouch built in the sheath (Stone Included) very similar to the Randall's...stamped: Marble's in leather on back, as well as keeper strap snap & stone pouch snap

You have everything ya need in this historical 3 piece set folk's for all your Outing adventures, knife for all survival needs, sharpening stone to stay sharp, compass for finding your way, and waterproof matchbox for fire starting...I have a 7" stag Ideal with the same sheath & added a fire starter to the stone pouch

Folk's, here is a knife I have had for some time, but changing priorities in retirement dictate it must go to a new owner ...Marble's  started up their Custom Shoppe, at the old Gladstone factory...they accepted custom orders for organizations, clubs, and regular folk's that wanted a custom Marble's knife made.

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 !!!

5_47518_1393273866_1.jpg
More Details

Folk's, I have a really unique knife that Marbles made app. 10 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...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, 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, in a coffin shape. 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 in New condition

Sorry, no box, just knife & sheath

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

5_47443_1392586453_1.jpg
More Details

Attention Collectors: this is a "Transition" model Trailmaker with the laser etch stamp made late in 2001 or very early in 2002.....this laser etch was done before Marble's had their 2002 regular stamp up & running !!!

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 Marble's Stag TrailMaker

Knife is 15" OAL with a 10" blade

Knife is Laser Etch stamped: Marble's with their Banner stamp

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

Handle is Gorgeous Genuine Stag, as is the pommel, full Stag on Stag pattern tradition at Marbles for over 100 yrs...look at the Bump Out in the front side of the handle, (see side view pics) a palm swell if you will that fills your hand very nice !!! 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

Condition: Knife is New in Original issue Marble's box

Item # 47299 - MARBLE'S AUTUM JIGGED BONE FIELDCRAFT- W/SHEATH - BOBCAT BOX -VERY EARLY 2002- SUPER HUNTING KNIFE !
5_47299_1391800214_1.jpg
More Details

Folk's, this knife was designed to deliver more work load per ounce of weight than any other knife on the market today !!! Its made of the same blade thickness of the Woody, and it with its extra stout backspine, you can push it to the limit in the amount of force when in use... this level of performace is very rarely attainable on a knife of this size !!!  If its a great quality hunting knife that your looking for...look no farther cause this Marble's knife fits the bill. This Fieldcraft pattern was one that came to pass while Mike Stewart was heading Marble's knife division...The Marble's Corp. was at its creative best during Mike's tenure there, and this blade pattern is one of the very best hunting knife patterns to come out of this peroid !!! ... It has a powerfull short, thick (.220) thousands blade that is very condusive to guttin or skinning big game critters...It is a scaled down version of the famous Marble's Woodcraft... Its high carbon blade is easy to sharpen and holds an edge very well !!!

Collectors Note: This is one of the 1st knives made in 2002 as they were still using the Bobcat box, and the fine quality flap over sheath...you can also tell by how "deep" the stamp is struck...look at later 2003-2006 knives and their stamp, much lighter

This is the Marble's Fieldcraft Hunter

This is Autum Jigged Bone handle / Aluminum pommel Fieldcraft

Knife is 8" OAL

Blade is 3 3/4"   high carbon,, brushed finish

Handle is really pretty Autum Jigged Bone, topped off with an aluminum pommel

Knife is deeply stamped: Marble's with their Banner mark

Whole package comes to ya New, in original Marble's old Bobcat box

Please supersize pics on next page for a close-up look at this very innovative hunting knife pattern !!!

Item # 47011 - MARBLE'S SPORT KNIFE, Leather/Aluminum Pommel, Made in the USA
55_47011_1390851404_1.jpg
More Details

I have for sale a Marble's Sport hunting knife.  The carbon steel blade on this knife is 3 7/8" and is marked "Marble's".  The handle is stacked leather with white, red, gold and black spacers and a brass guard.  This knife is pre-owned but has not been used.  There are some very small spots on the blade that appear to have developed while the blade was being manufactured.  This knife would have been made while Marble's knives were still made in the USA.  It does not have a sheath, but the Remington UMC sheath that I have listed fits this knife well.  It would be a nice knife to take out hunting, or for use around the camp.

5_47010_1390833392_1.jpg
More Details

 

Folk's, when the Lauerman's bought Marble's in 1994, before they hired Mike Stewart & started regular production of their knives & Outing equipment in 1997, they were very thoughtfull and sensitive as to how all their new equipment would be stamped...they worked closely with the Marble's Plus knife club, collectors, and Marble historians so the new Outing equipment would not be passed off as Vintage (Big $$$) and confuse collectors around the world...this compass is a piece of that hard work and thoughtfullness !!!

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's Brass Pin-On Short Tang Coat Compass

Compass is stamped on rim : Marble Arms

It was made right in Gladstone Michigan

Compass body is 1 1/8" in diameter...3/4" in height

You can see all angles of the compass in the en-larged pics on 2nd page even tho its still in the packaging

This Compass comes to ya New,Mint, in the Un-Opened, Original packaging, very, very scarce to find as there was not a large quantity of these produced...package has a few creases in it but is in wonderfull condition 

Please supersize pics on the next page for a close-up look at this Marble's institution !!!
