The Legacy Lives On

Marble’s® products have been highly sought by serious sportsmen for more than a century. Webster Marble understood the needs of the outdoorsmen and used innovative concepts and the best materials available to make sporting equipment that was both practical and durable.

Webster Marble is widely credited with designing and producing the first knife made especially for hunting; an accomplishment that earned him the title “Father” of the modern hunting knife. His “Safety Axe”, designed with a guard that folded into the handle, was both unique and efficient and is still being made and used today. It's true, you will find a bit of history in every blade. But the history is not only limited to knives and axes.

The history of Marble's Compasses dates to 1900 and have been carried by famous explorers and Presidents.

Pros: Weight, Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Light and sharp it outperforms more expensive machetes
I bought this machete about three years ago. It was my first machete and since then I have bought a tramontina, four or five Condor machetes, a martindale, and two cold steel machetes. As much as I love my Condor machetes (and hate the Cold steel machetes), I keep coming back to this model because it cuts further and faster than any of the other machetes I have hands down. This weekend I was cutting a few branches from a tree in my yard and this machete was cleanly slicing through 1 1/2" branches with one stroke and larger branches in two or three strokes. It does get dull with heavy use, but I have resharpened this several times with my worksharp, and it always sharpens up nice. Because it is so light, it remains comfortable in your hand after prolonged use and allows you to swing faster with less effort. I still use my other machetes for certain tasks because I like the variety and to try to get used to them, but honestly this works so well for small brush and larger branches that I really could use this machete for all my yard work. The drop in sheath is great as well!

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Materials
I don't hate it.
Nowhere near as good as a CS machete, but it's priced right. it can hold a ridiculously sharp edge, but just feels cheap in the hand. I'd still recommend the purchase, however. It's a good blade for light chores where other machetes are overkill. The potential versatility of the blade is diminished due to how cheap it is, and will bend and break where others won't. I rated it a four just because of how stupidly sharp I got it after just a few seconds of grinding. It'll definitely cut! It just won't cut everything.
