Marbles USA Woodcraft, 1095 Carbon Steel blade, Krayton handle - $48
8 7/8" overall. 4 1/4" 1095 high carbon steel blade with matte finish. Blades are from Marbles original stock. Textured black Kraton (safe grip) handle with vintage fox and hounds scene. Lanyard hole. Imported Embroidered black Cordura belt sheath. Knife Made in USA. The Woodcraft was one of Marbles most popular designs. With a broad sweeping blade good for skinning and butchering,the blade also had a flat top perfect for batoning when necessary.
Abner Fitzwillie notes, These blades are excellent and the Kraton (Rubber?) handle very comfortable. Featuring 1095 steel that has a matte finish to prevent rust, I can easily bring the edge razor sharp. I have one of the plainsman strapped to my big 8" knife as a general purpose knife, it is good Marbles steel. Marbles went bankrupt in 2009 and was bought out and now solely produced overseas. These original Marbles made in USA knives are a good find. The Woodcraft was a design often copied as it is an excellent hunting/skinning designed blade but can work well as a camp knife."
