looking for info on a couple of knives

Postby joefm » Sun Jun 02, 2019 11:24 pm

I have a few knives that I’m hoping you guys might have some info on. Any information on them, their history, or value would be greatly appreciated.

The Marbles knife has a replaced handle and pommel - the sheath is not original. That being said, I have no idea on value. Check eBay completed sales on the Westmark 702. I noticed actual sales between $50 and $125 for knife and sheath.

ok, thanks can you shed a little light where you said the handle and pommel has been replaced jus wondering whats the reasons you came to that conclusion and do you know how old that knife is?

If you look at any older Marbles the handles are not all stacked leather like the knife you posted. Marbles will generally have red, black and brass spacers on both the pommel and guard end (check out the Marbles forum and you will see what I am talking about). Marbles never put a pommel on a knife like the one found on yours.
