Item # 51819 - MARBLE'S 4PIN BUFFALO HORN 7"IMPALA JIGGED TRAILMAKER W/ORIGINAL SHEATH-GLADSTONE MICH-1999CUSTOM
5_51819_1422815368_1.jpg
More Details

I have a very seldom seen Custom Marble's 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 with the 4 Pin construction and the jigged Buffalo Horn Slabs, its got Custom Build written all over it !!! Coming with the Western Loop holster style sheath, it makes even a big blade knife such as this one comfy too carry...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 Impala Jigged Buffalo Horn Trailmaker

Knife is 12 1/4" OAL

Blade is 7 1/4"

It is a 4 Pin Buffalo Horn consruction

Condition: knife is brand new, never carried or used, with Marble's blade guard

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

Handle is a Gorgeous Impala Jigged Buffalo Horn, just a labor intensive process on the jigging, with the smooth portions of the horn that just shines

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 !!! It will sever a free-hung 2" thick piece of manila rope in one fail swoop !!! Mike Stewart said with such a big blade knife, it was very important to choose the right steel that would have great edge holding ability, but also with sufficent side pressure toughness for tough chopping tasks, this knife fits the bill for All of those requirements !!! These proseses are very costly, but they assure the user of this knife that all traces of brettleness are removed, and the strength is there !!!

Nice brass half guard / hilt finshed off with the Marble's spacer system showing made in 1999,,topped off with a aircraft aluminum pommel

Comes with a oil tanned stamped Marble's leather sheath, leather & keeper snap button are both stamped Marble's, also brand new, never used...holster style for comfy carry

No box, as these era & size knives came in just a white carboard box with no marking,, but,, it does have its original Marble's blade guard that is pictured

Please supersize the pics on the next page for a close-up look at this massive piece of Custom Marble's Cutlery !!!

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 !!!

5_51801_1422699777_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 Stag on Stag 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...made in early 2002,, (Note) looks like a scratch on the blade in pics and I took pics so it would show up, its very, very, lite and you cannot even see it if you turn the blade a bit, just try to let you all know everthing to prevent surprises when you recieve the knife 

Scales are Genuine thick Stag, nice color, good character and well matched from side to side,,,off side has a bump out in the Stag that makes for a great feel in the hand 

Pommel is genuine Stag (Note) you can see in pics there is 2 fine seasoning checks in the pommel, no biggie but noted so there is no surprises when you recieve the knife

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 Original Marble's box with the proper sticker on the end,, it has never been used or carried, nor has the sheath

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 !!!

5_51359_1420658885_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  the early 1930'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 made in 1928,,,***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 !!! And, **this box has the Match-Striker knurl on the supporting arms**

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***Patina on this box is exceptional, the way the Brass shows thru on bottom and other key spots on the box***

Folk's, I have a really unique knife that Marbles made app. 11 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.

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 !!!

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

More Details

 

Folk's, the Ideal Hunting knife was Webster Marble's 1st attempt at knife making, and as it turned out, his most successful. Introduced to the world in 1899, W L Marble had this to say about his design : This knife is the Ideal cross between a sticking and skinning knife.... hand made, hand tested. 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. 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 Stag Ideal's with aluminum pommels too be had out there, this particular Ideal also has the seldom seen Nylon Spacers between the Stag slabs.....with all the huntin I do for Marble's knives, "sales pitch be darned", I consider this particular Ideal to be on the very 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 Stag, nice lines on both sides, good character, and looking at the pics, pretty darn good match on both sides of the handle,, a very nice Stag Ideal.... it is built to use a life time, then will it to your grandkids !!! 

Also has the Original Marble's deep oil tanned leather sheath with internal cut guard, nice feature so you do not slice your sheath taking it in and out

Folk's, this is indeed a very scarce compass to run up on...its stamped Marble's with the Banner stamp and is one of the very 1st re-makes done when Marble's started back up in business after the Lauermans purchase of the outfit...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's with their Banner stamp

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 Original packaging, very, very scarce to find as there was not a large quantity of these produced...package has a few creases in it, and I have the package taped where the compass sets under the plastic dome,  but al in all,  wonderfull condition 

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

5_51350_1420626466_1.jpg
More Details

When the Lauermans bought Marble's in 1994 folk's, they hired Mike Stewart to head their knife division. They then began an onslaught on very innovative new blade patterns like the Plainsman...this Stag on Stag version is simply gorgeous with well matched stag on both sides.....this knife was made in 2002, per the spacer markings, right in the old Gladstone factory

Folk's, the Plainsman is a radical departure from other Marble's patterns...the knife is straight spined and in-line with the handle, the cutting edge is a subtle continuous curve from the hilt to the point...and field chores can be accomplished with surgeon-like precision !!!

This is the Marble's Plainsman Stag on Stag Hunter

Make No mistake about this knife folk's...it is a large heavy hunting knife !!! Truly a unique new pattern, one of many during Mike's tenure at Marble's that rolled out of the old Gladstone factory !!!

Knife is 9 5/8" OAL

Blade is 4 1/4"

Blade is stamped : Marbles with the Banner stamp, made in 2002 right in Gladstone

Handle is Gorgeous Genuine Stag as is the pommel,, a 100 plus year old Marble pattern, full Stag on Stag, really nice color and character in the scales, nice grooves in the Stag on both sides, and very well matched from side to side,,fastened together with the famous Marble spacer system

Comes with original Marbles stamped leather sheath, it has the "Internal Cutguard" to prevent cutting your sheath 

Knife is  in New condition, never carried or used !!!

Sorry, No box,,, knife & sheath only

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