ANTIQUE MARBLES SAFETY FOLDING KNIFE ORIGINAL AXE MAKER VERY GOOD STAG and RARE: $338
Here we have a rare find and that would be an older original antique MARBLE's SAFETY FOLDING KNIFE that is in I would say GOOD - VERY GOOD Condition.. The Folding Safety Knife was the first folding knife that Marbles made coming out I believe in 1902 borring design features from thier Saftey axe with a folding guard that protects the blade which when folded extends past the handle. This example dates from I believe around 1920. Handle alone measures about 4 inch, with the guard it is about 5 1/4 inch overall.Blade if sharpened doesn't look like much, no heavy scratches etc. Some light frosting and staining and couple small spots of rust but nothing that bad. Blade has not been monkeyed with or buffed. . Strong MARBLE's GLADSTONE Michigan logo.Blade opens and closes fine, good spring. Some slight movement to the blade when opened but not excessive. When closed lays into the handle and guard as it should. folding german silver guard is fine with no damage. safety guard is good, has a bit of rust and some scratchs showing on the one side.It opens and folds as it should. Very nice handle withoriginal real stag scales,one has an extreamly small crack coming out from the top pin,please see my close up photo that shows it. Scales are not pocket worn. front bolster has a few dings and marks, again see my photos. Knife is just as I found it and has never been buffed or monkeyed with whichis a rare find today.....Nice classic Marbles that I know you will like...Starting sale off low with no reserve and only $5.80 postage anywhere in the USA and more for foreign buyers
