Marble’s started the “Longhorn” line of knives in 1961; the knives had a military-style hex pommels and brand-new design heavy duty leather sheaths to attract potential customers preoccupied with the war in Vietnam. Also, Marble’s wanted to utilize the hex pommels left over from Marble’s original Jet Pilot Knife program. The Longhorn was an excellent-quality knife in every respect; some of these handy knives were picked up by the GIs getting shipped out to the South-East Asia. This Longhorn is in rare practically unused condition – this type is hard to find this nice as most of these knives were used in the field as intended.
The knife is about 11-5/8″ / 29 cm overall; the blade is about 7″ / 17.8 cm. The edge has been gently re-sharpened; it is razor-sharp still; the tip is intact. No nicks/contact marks on the blade’s spine or the pommel. Stacked leather washes handle with red-white-n-black fiber spacers. Solid steel hex pommel and bronze double-hilt guard; the handle is tight; all parts are solid with no play. Original sheath is in excellent shape, considering the age; the keeper is nice and tight; the leather is soft and supple; minor stitching loss at the tip is noted for accuracy.
