The Legacy Lives On

Marble’s® products have been highly sought by serious sportsmen for more than a century. Webster Marble understood the needs of the outdoorsmen and used innovative concepts and the best materials available to make sporting equipment that was both practical and durable.

Webster Marble is widely credited with designing and producing the first knife made especially for hunting; an accomplishment that earned him the title “Father” of the modern hunting knife. His “Safety Axe”, designed with a guard that folded into the handle, was both unique and efficient and is still being made and used today. It's true, you will find a bit of history in every blade. But the history is not only limited to knives and axes.

The history of Marble's Compasses dates to 1900 and have been carried by famous explorers and Presidents.

Kitchen machete
My wife straight up stole this from me right after I bought it. It's now "the kitchen machete". It gets used to process large squash and root crops from the Hispanic and Asian markets. It also serves as a BBQ spatula, pizza cutter & server. Beyond the kitchen, this tool is often seen in my wife's hand while gardening. It's one of the few tools pulled from the kitchen when we go camping.

Okay, if you’re handy to fix it up
First off, I knew what I was getting into, so if this review sounds negative it really isn’t.Right out the box the blade was loose. I could shake it and hear it rattle. My wife actually laughed. The handle is held by three metal slugs/handle pins, which are sheared off. Put it on my workbench and drilled out the slug closest to the blade. Replaced it with a bell nut and bolt/washer assembly.The wood is cheap and the tang of the blade is exposed. I filled the crevice with e6000 to reduce moisture build up inside the cheap wood handle.The edge was not very sharp, so I did some stone sharpening by hand. No big deal.The printed brand label on the blade started to flake off a little. No big deal.It has no sheath, beyond the cardboard shipping sleeve. I suppose if I was serious the cardboard sleeve could serve as a pattern for leather making. I’m not that serious, hah!Once fully rebuilt, the overall handling was better and felt solid. I’ll seal the handle with polyurethane and just toss it into my casual camping box. I wouldn’t do anything serious with this blade beyond use it for some cooking. The orange color and size makes it quite easy to spot and find. Altogether, this blade was a project and I knew that when ordering it.
