Another once-proud product name (Marbles Knives) takes a tumble....

    Although they`ve slipped from my radar over the years, when I was a kid, Marbles was a well-respected producer of good-quality "Hunting knives", or "Sheath knives" (using a term like "fixed-blade" would likely have gotten you branded as homosexual back in those days). Along with Case and Schrade (this was still the pre-Buck craze days), they pretty much dominated the "working man`s knife" market....

    Anyway, I was quite disappointed to see a current offering from this once-respected company....it looked for all the world like a Pakistani-made (cheap) "Damascus" type knife that you would find at a flea market, selling for around 25 bucks.... what a shame....

    That said I pulled the trigger on a new Boker Tree Solingen fixed blade on Friday night . Not expecting any quality issues from them.;)
    Really stoked, and will post some pic's when it gets here.

    Best-
