looking for info on this knife

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.

The blade is from an Ideal pattern, rest is anyone's guess

I've never seen a Marble's Ideal with a handle and pommel like that before. Maybe a Theater Made knife? ::shrug::

Any military markings on the sheath?
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
