I never heard of a Marbles knife.

Are they some rare brand or something?

Nice work! My dad and I have gotten into chef knives for cooking, have watched a lot of vids on people restoring knives.

You greatly improved your knife! Good Job!

The first photos with the staghorn were

I like staghorn, but that handle was a poor fit for the blade.

Looks lots better.

Marbles was some kind of outdoor equipment maker / seller from a loong time ago. I would guess 1950's or maybe before. I have seen and handled Marbles hatchets, knives, rifle sights, and they made an over-under 22/.410 SBS that came with a folding stock.
There is probably a bunch more to the Marbles story and products. That is only what I have seen.


EDIT Really nice work, bringing a classic knife like that back to life, after it's had a long hard life is something to be proud of.

Fine as frog hair, OP.

That's a handy size/shape knife. Marbles made good stuff.
Link Posted: 6/20/2017 12:39:09 PM EST
The end knob looks a bit out of place. maybe flatten out the two sides that run parallel to the blade? 

Cool knife though!

hey nice job.

 just an fyi, I believe most leather ring handles are compressed and dipped in something at the factory to water/moisture resist.

Wow, that looks great.

I've got one that could use a little polishing, the blade isn't in as bad of shape as yours was.


ETA
I think my grandpa gave it to me thirty years ago, or so.
