The Marble’s Ideal Hunting Knife has a storied past. It was Webster Marble’s first attempt at a hunting knife and was wildly successful. It was a unique cross between and sticking and skinning knife. Released in 1901, the Marble’s Ideal was a favorite of Teddy Roosevelt and was on the first Trans-Atlantic flight. It saw expeditions to the North and South Poles, and now Marble’s has drawn from the best qualities of that original Ideal Hunting Knife to create the Modern Ideal.

This fixed blade hunting knife is just over 11” long and has a 6.25” 440A stainless steel, drop point blade. It mimics the original blade shape almost identically, including the wide blood groove. The original bone handle has been replaced with a modern rubberized handle that improves grip and is easy to clean.

The Marble’s Modern Ideal comes with a ballistic nylon belt sheath and is the perfect addition to any hunting trip.
