Item #: 24093 - ANTIQUE MARBLE'S GLADSTONE MICH NO.5 SAFETY AXE WITH ANTIQUE MARBLE'S BRASS PIN ON COAT COMPASS !!!

5_24093_1267203115_1.JPG

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 !!!

This is the Marble's Safety Axe, NO. 5

Axe is 10 3/4" OAL with app. 4 1/4" X 2" hawk style head, 3 hole top design w/wedge

Head is stamped: Marble's with the (old roller coaster stamp) Gladstone, Mich. USA, No. 5

Blade guard is stamped: Marble Arms & MFG. CO. Gladstone, Mich. U.S.A. PAT'D 1898

Age: post 1918 - 1940 discontinued just before WW2, I believe this axe to be late 1920's to early 1930's because of info from previous owner's Grandfather

Condition: Good, head tight, guard fits tightly on blade edge & moves freely. Bent a bit in spots. No spring to it though. Head, guard, is stained, no pits, steel on head is smooth. Axe has been sharpened. Handle in good shape with no cracks.

Along for the ride is a Marble's brass pin on coat compass. It has a faint initial on the back that says: PR 1962 The compass is in wonderful condition, however the dial is sticky, and does not always return to north. Marble's compasses are a institution all of their own. Please look at my other listing's for antique Marble's Outing Equipment such as compasses & match safe's !!!

Please supersize the pics on the next page for a close-up look at one of the most storied pieces of American Cut. history !!!
