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 Super Scarce 1 of 50 made "Special Run" Stag / Leather / Stag with Stag pommel folk's...it was made in 2006...and adding the stacked leather into the Stag handle, that makes this knife really special as Marble's was the very 1st knife Company in America to bring the stacked leather washer handle into widespread use, copied by all the other knife outfits !!!

Handle is Gorgeous Genuine Stag and Stacked Leather, pommel is also Stag,, a full Stag on Stag pattern tradition at Marbles for over 100 yrs..., Wow, what a great feeling knife in the hand for such a huge knife !!! It has very nice "bump outs" in the Stag,, especially on the left side that would really fill up a Lefties hand with such a nice "palm swell"... Stag is nice and thick & fat and has great character all the way around the handle !!!
