Seldom seen Marble's knives and sheath

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.

Seldom seen Marble's knives and sheath

Postby stagman » Mon Mar 12, 2018 11:13 am

I have noticed that most threads about Marble's knives end
up in other sections...General,,,Knife Related etc. and this
forum ends up with no posts,
that being said, just figured I would post a few pics of some Gladstone made knives
and a sheath Marble's made that if real and in this kinda condition, would be worth $5000.00 bucks !!!
Top pick down.....
1) Marble's Safety Folding knife
2( A Stag Trailmaker with special etch in Original issue display case
3) The "COQUINA" sheath made 1902-06, This one made of horse hide
by Jack Mosher, original one held 2 knives and a sharpening steel, all Stag handled
Jack only made 5-6 of these
4) A Prototype of the "Haines" knife that was made 1910-15, its the only one I know of
and they never put it back in production...just a few here of not seen very often Marble's pieces

Although my Marbles photos have been shown elsewhere as stagman pointed out, I wanted to take this opportunity to be sure I had them under the Marbles thread.

The 3rd of my photos from the top is incorrectly labeled Willow Leaf. Hear is the Willow Leaf with a Gutta Percha handle.

Thank you doglegg. Nothing subtle about it, but if a man wanted to conquer a wilderness it would come in mighty handy.

Looking through my modest collection to see what I have pictures of . . .

Throwing in a group shot and screwdriver set just for the heck of it, will take some more organized pictures later. I have my fixed blades organized my date, the oldest (M.S.A.) are on the left to newer on the right. Most of my fixed blades are resting on a tin boxed Marble's gun cleaning kit complete with all the pieces for cleaning both rifles and handguns.

The history setting on that tin in the 1st photo is mind boggle-ling Red
that is a very well versed collection of Webster Marble goodies !!!
Outstanding,, I am really enjoying seeing some Marble's knives and
Outing Equipment being posted....they really were the outfit all others
in the outdoor supply business were chasing from 1900-1930

That Deweese with the stamp on the off side is one you see very little of Red
