Finally a bucketlister found.

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.

Will show again when in functioning condition. Who can afford one of these in a mint state. Take a look and tell me what you think. "Will", eat you heart out over this stag.

There are only a couple of different knives I'd like to have in my collection that aren't Remington and that is one of them. Very nice. ::tu::

Thanks to all who commented. Yes I will definitely show it when finished. I am only having it returned to functioning condition. I prefer knives to live out their lives showing their trials and tribulations hence it will only be thoroughly cleaned and work once again. As you can see the slightly rounded edges on the tang it will never walk and talk like new. If my dad were still alive he would say to have the tang hard faced and regrind it like we did the old cultivator plow shears. No, it has earned its wear.

As I requested the only thing done was the blade reinstall. It came out as I wished no more, no less. Excellent in my opinion.
If the person who performed the work wants it known I think it was a fantastic job and welcome them to get the advertising
for superior work at a more than reasonable cost. Please speak up.
Thank you,
moss

Wow Moss!
The guy who did that knew what he was doing! (It wasn't me).
It looks like it should, and that's the highest compliment to repairman! ::tu::

Moss - that is a fine looking knife! I can see why it was on your bucket list. Very nice repair job, too! I am kind of surprised that whatever it was that dislocated the blade did not crack the handles, too.
