Marbles USA vintage Woodcraft knife made circa 1954-1960th, original “Moose & Goose” leather sheath. Rare UNUSED condition with orig sport’s store price sticker still on; excellent overall condition, considering the age.
Vintage circa 1949-1952 MARBLE’S ever-popular Woodcraft model Hunter-Skinner in “as purchased” unused condition – VERY rare as such. Marble’s Woodcraft was the best Skinner available when it first came out in 1914; since then Woodcraft design was copied under different names by various competitors countless times all over the world. Original American stock proudly made circa 1954-1960th in Gladstone, Michigan, USA. Marble’s Knives was one of the best US makers of hunting knives, axes and other outdoor gear since 1898.
This nice specimen was purchased from Dewey’s Sporting Goods which back in the days was located at 852 North Plankinton in Milwaukee (see the store’s 1960 photo attached). The knife still has an original price sticker attached to the back of the sheath; the blade was signed as well but most of the ink and the hand-written note on the handle are gone at this point. This knife cost a whooping $6.25 (!!) about 65 years ago. The knife is about 8-1/2″ / 21.5 cm overall; the blade is about 4-1/2″ / 11.5 cm long; 3-line Marble’s / Gladstone / MICH. U.S.A. logo stamped on ricasso. The blade is RAZOR-sharp; it has not been re-sharpened; the tip is intact; beautiful original patina covers most of the blade. Stacked leather washers and polished aluminum pommel handle with colored fiber-n-brass spacers and brass guard; all parts are tight with no play. Original “Moose & Goose” leather sheath is in excellent condition; the leather is soft and supple.
This vintage Marbles USA vintage Woodcraft knife and its original “Moose & Goose” sheath are in excellent overall condition – VERY rare as such. Don’t miss your chance to add this well-aged beauty to your collection!
