5_50540_1415313987_1.jpg
Larger Pictures / More Details

This is a Reproduction of the 1950's -1960's Marble's leather Moose & Goose sheath

It has all the same markings as the original minus the keeper strap snap stamp

Sheath will fit your Marble's knives with a 4 1/2" blade such as the Ideal, Sport, Woodcraft etc.

Stamped in the leather is the old Marble's trademark

It will make a nice addition to display your sheath-less Marble's knives

Although this is a re-pro, and a quite good one at that,  it is a fact that having the original sheaths with your fixed blade knives, it can add 10% too 20% more value to the overall worth of the knife

Sheath is brand new, sealed in plastic wrap, took the pics without re-moving it from it

Folk's, selling & trading Marble's knives and accessories for longer than I like to admit, I have had several request's about selling other Marbles related Outing Equipment. So, I have decided to start letting a few piece's of my collection go to other Marble's collectors around the country. All of my Compasses & Waterproof Match Boxes are Antique / Vintage

Marbles compasses have been carried to the far corners of the globe. To the 1st expeditions to the north and south pole by Admiral's Peary & Byrd, deep in the Amazon & Africa on Teddy Roosevelts expeditions,... Charles Lindberg used one on the 1st trans-atlantic flight that is now displayed in the Smithsonian Institution !!!

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 & MFG. Co. Brass Long Tang Coat Compass

Compass is stamped on back spine : Marble Arms & MFG. Co. 

This is a very, very, early design, only made from 1918 - 1928 in the long tang design

Compass is in good condtion (see pics) Note: it has a crack in the glass across the face, can be just a little "sticky" here & there, a little tap, and she seeks north faithfully...  other than that, just wonderfull condition & works well.

It has the red garnett bearing in middle of post

Item # 48865 - MARBLES 3 PIECE OUTING SET- IDEAL- MATCHBOX - COMPASS - HISTORIC 3 PIECE SET OF OUTING EQUIPMENT !!!

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, 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
