Rare MARBLE’S KNIVES limited edition issue of Outers Pattern knife that originally appeared in Marble’s catalogs circa 1902. This specimen was proudly made in 2003 in Gladstone, Michigan USA as a custom-issue; only 300 custom Outers Pattern knives were made in each handle option. Expertly fitted and hand-finished at the Marble’s factory in Gladstone, Michigan. Marble’s Knives was one of the best US makers of hunting knives, axes and other outdoor gear since 1898.
The knife is about 7-5/8″ / 19.5 cm overall; satin-polished blade is about 4-1/8″ / 10.5 cm long; the 3-line M.S.A. Co. / Gladstone / MICH. USA logo on ricasso; the other side is etched Custom 2003. The blade is RAZOR-sharp; the tip is intact. Solid full-tang construction with Fish Eye Brown jigged bone handle scales with bronze pins. The handle is tight; one age-related cosmetic hairline crack near the top pin is noted for accuracy. This knife is in as-made mint condition, complete with the original MARBLE TRADE MARK brown leather sheath in mint condition, and original correctly-labeled “bobcat” retail box. This custom Marbles 2003 Outers pattern knife type is VERY hard to find in mint condition these days, especially with the original retail packaging included.
