Identification help: woodcraft stag

Webster Marble formed Gladstone Mfg. Co. in 1892. That company created the first folding Axe in 1893 which lead to the incorporation of Marble's Safety Axe Co. in 1898. The company became Marble Arms & Mfg. Co. in 1911 & enjoyed years of success until succumbing to a shut down of production in 1974. The brand was brought back to life in 1994 & enjoyed a grand rejuvenation that later gave way to another shutdown in 2009. Many great knives & tools were crafted over the company's storied history.

There is a tang stamp on the blade. Does it say Marbles?

Nice looking Woodcraft and a real bargain price. No pins in the handle suggest a more recent knife like 1960's. Is there any marking on the sheath snap?
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.
