Classic Marbles Fieldcraft knife model 80308 with stag handles and leather sheath, made in USA - $185
The Fieldcraft is the modern day offspring of Webster Marble's signature Woodcraft Hunting Knife. The same dramatic design is readily evident in the blade. The difference is the slightly shorter back spine and 3 3/4 in. blade for hunters who prefer a shorter blade. The Fieldcraft is an excellent choice for the serious sportsman seeking a compact yet powerful field knife. Each knife includes a high quality, oiled leather safety sheath.
Overall length: 7 3/4 in.
Blade Material: 0170-6 High Carbon Chrome Vanadium Steel
One September 23, 2009 Marbles Knife Company declared bankruptcy ending a period of over 100 years as one of America’s premier knife, and axe manufacturers. Known originally as MSA (Marble Safety Axe) their unique axes and designs helped to quickly build their name and reputation. The fixed blade knives were manufactured in Gladstone, Michigan, folding knives and axes were built overseas to exacting standards. If you have always wanted to own a Marbles knife, axe, brass compass, or matchsafe - now is the time.
I went on-line that evening and ordered from the distributor as many of the Made in USA classic knives as I could find, especially those with handles of leather, stag or unusual wood. This is part of that inventory.
These Marbles have been stored since 2009 and come exactly as pictured. They have not been used or sharpened and any marks or spots if any are from being stored.
Elmer Fitzwillie notes; I have always loved Made in USA knives like Marbles. They are tough and durable, easy to sharpen and have a beauty all their own. Marbles was an innovator with their designs and built these knives for the outdoors, especially camping and hunting. They represent a true piece of Americana.
