Folk's back in 1904, Webster Marble designed and put his Special Hunting knife pattern into production...it was one of the few full exposed tang knives in the Marble lineup, most were full hidden tang designs, sadly, this pattern Marble knife only was made from 1904 - 1914...it was the victim of the Marble's Woodcraft that came out and was so well recieved around the world, the Special was dropped from the Marble's line of knives,,,also worth noting, a fact I dug up in one of Levines books, a very similar knife blade pattern was seen in the 1860's in old San Francisco, California, a knife pattern bulit by knife-smiths for wealthy Northern California hunters, maybe thats where W.L. Marble got his idea for his own Special ??? During Mike Stewart's tenure at Marble's, the Special was re-created both in full size as this knife,  and the Mini-Special Hunter...I once saw bout 6 yrs ago at a very extensive private Marble's collection auction I attended, a Special go for I believe was $3850.00 !!! This Special Hunting knife is a very heavily constructed & hefty knife, not to mention a  remarkable one with remarkable history over the years !!!

This is the Marble's Special Hunting Knife

This is truly an American Styled Bowie knife that will meet all big game chores that the North American continent can throw at it !!! 

Knife is 9 5/8" OAL

Blade is 5 1/8" in length and made of 52/100 B modified carbon steel, 59-60 Rockwell C...this blade steel took several top prizes in the ABS sponsored World Cutting Championships !!!

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

Marble's also did something special for this knife, adding "red fiber" liners under the slab handles, never done on almost all their other knives !!! You can see them in enlarged pics

Handle is just gorgeous Genuine Buffalo Horn slabs, pinned with 3 large pins on both sides...deep lines and Super Impala Jigging on the horn slabs on both sides of this knife...blade is very heavy and .235 thousands thick !!! Knife handle has unique style to it, with a slight recess area for your 1st finger to cradle in topped off on the end with the old Marble trademark "Birds Beak" butt of the knife, ya gotta love it !!! All this together makes for a extremely well balanced, comfy knife for any and all field chores you run up on !!!

Knife comes with Marble's stamped original issue leather pouch type sheath

Knife is New in box condition

Whole package comes to ya in the Marble's Bobcat box with proper sticker on the end

Please super-size pics on next page for a close-up look at this 110 yr old pattern Marble's knife !!!

Wow folk's, what a super knife I have for ya here...made in 2000, this new pattern LoveLess Trailknife is just a stunner !!! In 1999 Marble's began a close association with Master knife maker & designer R.W.LoveLess, a drop point pattern legend, to produce their Sport 99 pattern knife...in the year 2000, their relationship went to a whole nother level...Bob LoveLess in his early days was a fond admirer of Webster Marble's knives...he owned and used the Marble's Trailmaker and was very fond of its feel & balance...Mike Stewart, Jim & Craig Lauerman asked Bob too design a brand new version of the lengendary Trailmaker, that would mimick the balance and usefullness of the old version...the Loveless Trailknife with a 9 1/4" blade was born !!! It has a drop point blade, with a extremely thick heavy tip & streamline profile...this knife will clear trails, handle rough camp chores, and is very fast in your hand...the blade is full height ground too a heavy razor sharp convex edge....The backspine is super thick, "but" it only tapers close to the point of the knife...this gives this knife blade unsurpassed strength, and a very unique "forward of the guard" balance !!! This gives the user "maximum" cutting power during extreme chopping & cutting motions !!! Bob liked the old Trailmaker so much, he decided to leave the handle "Pure Webster Marble"....Folk's, there are very few knives on the open market that possess the strength & cutting power of this WL Marble / R W Loveless Trailknife !!! This knife reflects the the talents of these 2 cutlery giants, and is truly one of the most collectable Marble's knives they ever made in their storied history !!!

This is the Loveless Trailknife

Blade is 9 1/4" in length

Knife is 14 1/2" OAL

Blade is stamped: Marble's Gladstone, Mi. U.S.A. with the full Marble's address

Handle is Black Micarta, with aircraft aluminum pommel

Heavy brass guard

Knife was made in 2000 per Marble's spacer system

Comes with its Original top shelf leather sheath

Whole package comes to ya in the white cardboard original box with correct sticker on the end, with blade guard and Marble's knife care card

Folk's, if ya be an outfitter that does alot of caping for your clients, or ya run a trapline full or partime, or your a small game hunter that wants to make use of the fur pelts you have hunted up, boy do I have a little gem in the form of a Marble's knife for ya !!!

Add 52/100 high carbon ball bearing steel that will take a razor edge, you end up with one handy hide removing varmit !!! This is more like having a surgical tool in your mits than a knife !!! This is another innovative pattern to come out of the Marble's Corp. during the 1997-2002 Mike Stewart era.

This Caper has has a blade etch of a whitetail buck with Fred Trost signiture on it...Fred was a very popular host of the Michigan Practical Sportsman TV show for years in Michigan on public TV...he sadly passed away bout 7 yrs ago, still miss ya Fred !!!

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 2002-2003, this knife being a 2002 made knife, so with the Trailcraft a brand new pattern for the year 2000, its my opinion this pattern Marble's knife is very limited quantities 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

Has a Brass hilt, & the Marble's spacer system

Comes with Marble's Original stamped oil tanned leather sheath

Knife is new in the Original box, never carried or used, as is the sheath

Here is just one Gorgeous piece of custom cutlery folk's that was made in 2000 during Mike Stewarts tenure at Marble's...its the Marble's Campcraft Custom 4 pinned Stag......it has genuine Stag slabs put together with 4 pins, age old Marble's design since the late 1800's !!! You have to go back over 80 yrs in Marble's knife history to find the Campcraft when it was introduced in 1929 as the Model #60....this new Campcraft 2000 has the same cutting profile, but with a lenghtened choil for a secure choke up...it also has a re-designed bowie style clip point blade...it will easily handle any big game chores as well as most camp chores with its "forward belly" cutting edge that will maximize the power with every cutting stroke.....I personally have seen very, very few of this special 4 pin Stag design Campcrafts over the last 14 yrs, and thats alot of shows, auctions, etc. that I attend regulary in Michigan, my opinion, a not often seen knife in this particular design !!!

This is the Marble's Custom Stag Campcraft

Knife is 8  7/8" OAL

Blade is 4 1/2"

Blade is stamped: Marble's Gladstone Mi. U.S.A. with their full address

Blade is 52/100 B High Carbon ball bearing steel...this bladesteel took several top places in the ABS sponsored World Cutting Championships.

Pommel is aircraft aluminum

Handle is thick, gorgeous Genuine Stag slabs held together with 4 pins !!! Stag has some nice gold color in spots, very deep grooves, just beautifull Stag Bark on front and off side of the handle, worth a look in the enlarged pics just to gander at that Stag !!!

It has a thick brass guard, and maybe its just me, but this knife is super comfy in the hand,  and will handle butchering any big game in North America !!!

Comes with its Original stamped Marble's leather sheath of Exceptional Quality, keeper strap snap also stamped Marble's

Whole package comes to ya New, unused or carried in the Marble's Bobcat box with proper sticker on the end with stock #

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

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, 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

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 !!!

This is the Marble's Landmark series Ideal , Liberty Bell blade etch, 1 of 100 made !!! This knife has nice "Fat" genuine Stag scales...and its the Stag on Stag pattern, personally my favorite in any fixed blade knives, with Marble's, KA-BAR, Remington, being the leaders of old companies that used the stag-stag patterns the most.

Knife is 8 3/4" OAL

Blade is 4 1/4"

This is a half Guard / Hilt Ideal

Blade is Stamped: Marble's U.S.A. with their Banner stamp...this knife was made app. 2006

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 and the heft of the Fat Stag handle feels real good in the hand...Pommel is also Stag with very nice Stag bark all the way around, full  Stag on Stag pattern

Condition: New, in Original Marbles box, never used or carried

Also has the Original Marble's deep oil tanned leather sheath with internal cut guard

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. They re-created some of the companies most well known & famous knives, they used the ancient old M.S.A. Co. stamp on select models of Custom's that they made... this here is one of em !!!  This Ideal here is a "Prototype" , and is etched so on the front of the blade, has the Custom 2003 etch on the off side of the blade, it is a super scarce knife too run up on, and its pinned stag !!! Folk's, if you have never had the pleasure to hold one of these big Ideal's in your hand, you cannot imagine what a massive piece of cutlery they are !!! 

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 M.S.A. Co. Stag 4 Pin Ideal..."Prototype" Custom 2003

This is a 1/2 Guard / 1/2 Hilt Ideal

Knife is 12 1/2" OAL with a 7" blade

Blade has the massive fuller in it thats makes the Ideal instantly reconized, and is super thick at .250, a full 1/4" of high carbon blade steel !!!

Blade is deeply struck stamped: M.S.A. CO. Gladstone Mich. USA...Custom 2003 on the off side

Handle is genuine Stag, the old 4 Pin construction holding the thick Stag slabs together....it has  great Stag bark all the way around it...very thick gorgeous chunks of Stag, and if ya look at the pics, its very well matched from side to side

Blade is 7" long, etched on front in the fuller: "Prototype"...and Custom 2003 on the off side

 Comes with a top shelf deep oil tanned Triple stamped Marble's sheath with sharpening stone pouch & stone, also never used...Marble Trademark stamp on front, Marble's stamp on back, keeper snap also stamped...Just here back in May-2012, I saw a very used beat up sheath like this sell for 80+ 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 with proper markings describing the contents

Folk's, the Marble's Woodcraft is one of the most instantly reconized knives that was ever made in the entire world !!! Patent applied for in 1915, W L Marble was quoted: Be it be known that I, Webster L Marble...have invented a new & original Design for a Blade of a new Hunting Knife...that patent was granted to  Marble on Febuary 22, 1916...the Woodcrafts success not only in the USA but also around the world became legendary !!! After the patent ran out in 1930,,, the Woodcraft became the most copied knife blade pattern by allmost every other knife company in the world !!! It was billed as a knife that could fullfill every demand the professional trapper, guide, or big game hunter could throw at it...it has most definately held up its end of the challenge !!! It is 2 knives in 1 to the user...a great knife to field dress big game & one of the very best skinning knives on the planet !!!

This is the Marble's Woodcraft...Landmark Series...Mt Rushmore...1 of 100 made....has a color blade etch of one of  the most famous, reconizeable landmarks in the U.S.A.  gigantic mountain size  carved busts of presidents Washington,Jefferson,Lincoln,and Roosevelt, very cool !!! If you have never visited this landmark, you really should...the Black Hills area in South Dakota is really a magical area...make sure you catch the Mt Rushmore lighting ceremony at nite, honoring all our vets, really cool, really moving  !!! 

Knife is 8 7/8" OAL with a 4 1/2" blade & aluminum pommel

Blade is stamped: Marble's over USA with their Banner stamp and has the Mt Rushmore etch on it

Handles are very nice heavy Stag with very nice Stag Bark all the way around the handle, deep lines, great color, just look at that stag in the enlarged pics on the next page, exceptional,  pommel is also Stag...really, my personal favorite, the full Stag on Stag handle pattern

Also comes with Original Marble's deep oil tanned leather sheath

Whole package comes to ya New in Original Marble's box

Explorers from Teddy Roosevelt to Peary & Byrd who were the 1st to reach the north & south poles carried Ideals...Charles Lindbergh had one 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 !!!

 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 !!! His theory was a knife big and heavy enough knife for building shelters and camp chores as well as other woodsman chores !!! 

This is a Marble's Stag 7" Ideal

This is a Half Guard / Half Hilt Ideal

Knife is 12" OAL with a 7" blade

Blade has the massive fuller in it thats makes the Ideal instantly reconized... blade is .255 thousands thick, 1/4" thick of brushed high carbon steel !!!

Blade is stamped: Marble's with their Banner stamp over USA

Handle is just beautifull Genuine Stag, nice character, very thick, a real handfull !!!  Pommel is aluminum

Comes with Original Marble's deep oil tanned leather sheath also stamped Marble's Outdoors, it has a very important feature inside...the internal cut guard...makes sheathing these big blade knives much easier

Condition: Knife has never been carried or used

Sorry...No box

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 !!!

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

Please supersize pics on the next page for a close-up look at this massive Marble's TrailMaker, a Marble's legend !!!

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

Comes with original Marble's stamped leather deep oil tanned  sheath of Top Shelf  quality... internal cut guard to prevent slices..and, the sheath holds the whole knife for extra protection and security against it slipping out like on a pouch type sheath with no keeper strap...or when you are on a foul weather outing trip, protected from the weather...there is enough room inside to slip a magnisium block or other type of Fire Starter for an extra security package !!!

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