A little history on Marbles:Marbles was founded by Webster Marble in the early 1900\'s. Webster was a true innovator of his time, helping to shape the outdoorsman industry with his inventions. He oversaw quality control, and had very rigidstandards, which made all of his products superior than any others on the market at the time.A couple of his most famous inventions are the Safety Axe, (which allowed an outdoorsman to carry a hatchet/axe on his belt without injuring his body), and the waterproof match safe (which prevented matches from getting wet, and potentiallysaving the life of a cold and wet outdoorsman). He also patented the now famous handle pattern made with stacked leather discs.
Another invention was the IDEAL knife, created to suit the needs of Webster himself. This knife was strong, lightweight, and durable. Many have copied the design of this knife, but the quality of their copies had a lot to be desired.
