Vintage Marbles Safety Hatchet No 5 "Pocket Axe" in excellent condition with light use. It is marked MARBLE'S GLADSTONE, MICH. USA NO. 5 on the head as seen below in photo. On the safety guard arm it is marked MARBLE ARMS & MFG. CO. GLADSTONE, MICH. USA PAT'D 1898 as seen below in the first photo. It has the three hole hickory wood handle and head. It is 10-5/8" overall and is still very tight and very usable. The cutting edge is 2-1/4" wide. Weight 16 ounces. The guard has the lead edge protector inside. It has not been overly cleaned or polished. It is the real deal and genuine article. Made in USA.

Marbles Safety Pocket Axe is a light hatchet with a unique blade guard that folds into a recess in the handle, eliminating the need for a sheath. This one has been sharpened lightly and has some small marks on the head and wood handle. Not sure of the exact date on this one but probably before the end of the 1950's. Looks like Marble knives and axes are no longer made in the USA as of Sept. 2009. This one was made in the USA because of its age.

Recommended care: Never let the safety guard close without helping it cover the axe head. Close it slowly and do not let it snap shut. Keep a light covering of oil on the metal parts when in storage because it is mostly carbon steel. Never use a high speed grinder to sharpen the hatchet, sharpen slow with a Norton Axe/Hatchet Stone.
