The Gamegetter line of knives came out in 1998-99....they were a radical departure from all other Marble's knives made over the last 100 years...the Cocobolo / Dymondwood handle is 100 % impervious too heat, cold, and moisture !!! The handle on this knife is styled to be 100% anatomically shaped to fit the hand perfect...it is also Ergonomically shaped to minimize hand, wrist, and forearm fatigue while in extensive use and maximize blade efficiency while in use, 2 very important factors to consider while working on your big game trophys !!! As it states in one of their flyers...Webster Marble would 100% approve this line of knives !!!

This is the GameGetter Cocobolo Campcraft knife by Marble's

Knife is 9" OAL

Blade is 4 1/2" in length

Blade is laser stamped Marble's with the Banner stamp...it also has 52/100 etched on it eluding to the 52/100 high carbon ball bearing bladesteel it is made of...this blade steel took several top prizes in the ABS sponsored World Cutting Championships !!!

Folk's, this is one of my favorite Marbles hunting knives....

More Details

 Marble's collectors note: this Sport comes with Natural Bone scales, and comes in the Original Marble's Bobcat box with the big Flap Over leather sheath...these 2 items were only used during the 1998-2001 peroid at Marble's

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 !!!

Knife is 8" OAL

Blade is 3 5/8"

Blade is stamped: Marble's, with their Banner stamp, is high carbon, brushed finish...made in early 2002,,possibly late 2001, as they were still using the Bobcat box and the flap over sheath from the 1998-2001 era

Scales are Genuine Gorgeous Natural Bone...I have seen very few of this pattern Marble's knives with these Natural Bone scales folk's, and check out the color of the Bone in the enlarged pics, very nice !!! 

Pommel is aircraft alumnium

Comes with original Marble's deep oil tanned "Flap Over" leather sheath, with internal cut guard too prevent sliceing your sheaths while taking the knife in and out...very nice design feature, and...it leaves you enough room to put a fire starter rod, and maybe a thin sharpening stone so you have all your survival items in one spot !!!

Condition: Knife is new in the Original Marble's Bobcat box with the proper sticker on the end,, it has never been used or carried, nor has the sheath

Item # 58005 - MARBLE'S #4 GLADSTONE MICHIGAN U.S.A. SAFETY AXE- 1ST 100 MADE IN 1998-AN AMERICAN CUTLERY LEGEND
5_58005_1461862691_1.jpg
More Details

Folk's, this axe is one of the 1st 100 that were made at Marble's in 1998 when they re-introduced the Safety Axe back into their cutlery line-up after a 39 year abcense, a real collectors piece to say the least for the Marble's collector !!!

Folk's, when the Lauermans & Mike Stewart decided to make a wood handle safety axe back in 1998 to celebrate 100 yrs of manufacture (1898-1998) it was no suprise that they choose the # 4 !!! The wood handle # 4 was only made from 1903-1910...8 yrs total...you can check any Marble's book ya have and it will state its the Rarest wood handle axe Marble made !!! This is a Hawk style head and in 1910 it was changed to a Michigan pattern head, and that only lasted a couple of yrs...the quality of this axe is impecable !!! When these axes were invented, they could be carried on the belt by simply opening up the swing out guard and hanging it on your side !!! This new #4 is an "Exact" replica of the vintage #4 except for the three hole handle attachment !!!

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 !!!

Head is stamped: Marble's Gladstone Mich. U.S.A. Safety Axe # 4 - 1st 100

5_57240_1459063776_11.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 also started up their Custom Shoppe LLC , bringing back old stamps like the MSA and making short run custom knives, like this Ideal right here...a great compliment  to ultilze  the old Gladstone factory...they accepted custom orders for organizations, clubs, and regular folk's that wanted a custom Marble's knife made...well this Ideal here is 1 0f 100 made, has the custom etch on the off side of the blade, and at a 100 piece run , is a super scarce knife too run up on !!!

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 !!!

This is a Marble's Stag Ideal with Buffalo Horn pommel...Custom 2003

This is a 1/2 Guard / 1/2 Hilt Ideal

Knife is 9 1/2" OAL with a 4 1/4" blade

Blade is made of high carbon, vanadium steel, brushed finish

Blade has the massive fuller in it thats makes the Ideal instantly reconized...I was told it cost Marble's $20.00 bucks a knife on the 7-8 in Ideals to machine the fuller/blood groove, thus not many Ideals were made, not near as abundent as some of the other patterns

Blade is deeply struck stamped: Marble's with their Banner stamp on the front...and Custom 2003 on the off side... made at the Gladstone Mich. factory

Handle is Genuine Stag...just great Stag bark all the way around this 1 piece Stag handle...pommel is Genuine Buffalo Horn, nice swirl in the horn on the flat part of pommel 

 Comes with a very scarce Marble's deep oil tanned double stamped Marble's sheath with sharpening stone pouch & stone, also never used...Marble Trademark stamp on front, Marble's stamp on back...this is a top shelf sheath folk's, in my opinion, the very best sheath that Marble's put out in their 111 yr history... and if you intend to make this your carry knife, sure is nice to have every thing you need in the wild all in one package to stay sharp !!!

 Comes in Original Marble's box

Condition: Mint...never used or carried

Please supersize pics on the next page for a close-up look at one, if not thee, most famous knives ever made !!!

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 !!!

This is a M.S.A. Co. Stacked Leather Ideal...Custom 2003

This is a 1/2 Guard / 1/2 Hilt Ideal

Knife is 12" OAL with a 7" blade

Blade is thick, .265 thousands !!! Double Plus some what most big blade knives like Case XX Kodiak, Buck, etc make their blades...Blade is made of high carbon, vanadium steel, brushed finish

Blade has the massive fuller in it thats makes the Ideal instantly reconized...I was told it cost Marble's $20.00 bucks a knife on the 7-8 in Ideals to machine the fuller/blood groove, thus not many were made

Blade is deeply struck stamped: M.S.A. CO. Gladstone Mich. USA

Handle is Stacked Leather, with aircraft aluminum pommel, Marble's was the very 1st knife company too bring the stacked leather handle into wide spread use in America !!!

Blade is a huge 7" long, etched on front in the fuller: 1 of 25...and 2003 on the off side...you just have to have one of these big Ideals in your hand to understand what a massive piece of cutlery they are folk's !!!

 Comes with a very scarce Marble's deep oil tanned double stamped Marble's sheath with sharpening stone pouch & stone, also never used...Marble Trademark stamp on front, Marble's stamp on back...Just here in May-2012, I saw a used sheath like this sell for 88 bucks on ebay...this is a top shelf sheath folk's, and if you intend to make this your carry knife, sure is nice to have every thing you need in the wild all in one package to stay sharp !!!

 Comes in Original Marble's box

Condition: Mint...never used or carried

5_56398_1453560139_1.jpg
More Details

Folk's, when the Lauermans & Mike Stewart decided to make a wood handle safety axe back in 1998 to celebrate 100 yrs of manufacture (1898-1998) it was no suprise that they choose the # 4 !!! The wood handle # 4 was only made from 1903-1910...8 yrs total...you can check any Marble's book ya have and it will state its the Rarest wood handle axe Marble made !!! This is a Hawk style head and in 1910 it was changed to a Michigan pattern head, and that only lasted a couple of yrs...the quality of this axe is impecable !!! When these axes were invented, they could be carried on the belt by simply opening up the swing out guard and hanging it on your side !!! This new #4 is an "Exact" replica of the vintage #4 except for the three hole handle attachment !!!

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 !!!

Marble's did not make a Safety Axe from 1959 till this was made in 1998, 39 yrs without the product that built the whole company !!! These axes that were made in 200, 300, piece runs are a very special piece to have Marble's collectors !!!
