MARBLES Buster Brown Health Shoes Woodcraft knife, orig correct leather sheath. Rare 1930th 1st model in great overall condition, considering the age; rare this nice.
Vintage and hard-to-find Buster Brown Health Shoes marked Woodcraft hunter-skinner made in the 1930th by MARBLE’S; original “Buster Brown” leather sheath is included. Proudly hand-finished in Gladstone, Michigan USA. Marble’s was one of the best US makers of hunting knives, axes and other outdoors gear since 1898; this knife is from the Marble’s pre-WW2 “golden era” – a great find! MARBLE’S started making these blade-marked Woodcrafts for Buster Shoe cOMPANY in the late 1920th; only the early model was marked Buster Brown Health Shoes; the word “health” was dropped from the blade logo sometime in the late 1930th.
Despite the corny shoe company association, this is an excellent Hunter-Skinner with a wide up-swept blade and a ribbed spine for a better blade control – simply the best blade design for skinning. An older “large S roller coaster”tamp Mãrble’s / GLADSTONE. / MICH. U.S.A. on one side of the ricasso and BROWN SHOE CO. / ST. LOUIS U.S.A. on the other. Narrow oval pommel with a “small” brass lag nut: circa 1923-1940 manufacture.
The knife is about 8-1/4″ / 21 cm overall; the blade is about 4-1/4″ / 10.8 cm. The blade is very sharp still; the tip is intact. Stacked leather washers with colored fiber & brass spacers handle; “small nut” aluminum pommel and bronze guard. All handle parts are tight with no play. Original brown leather sheath is used but it is in better than average condition; the keeper is nice and tight.
This rare 1930th MARBLES Buster Brown Health Shoes Woodcraft knife and its original leather sheath are in excellent over condition, considering the age. Don’t miss your chance to add this rare early Marble’s Woodcraft to your collection!
