Fred Trost passed away on July 18, 2007 of a rare lung disease. I will continue to sell Marble's knives until the inventory is depleted. My pictures aren't as good, but, I'm working on that! Thank you for visiting Joe Sportsman Outdoor Collectibles.-- JoAnn Cribley

ABOUT THIS KNIFE: This 1999 limited edition of the classic Dall DeWeese design was handmade at the Marble's factory in Gladstone , Michigan . The fully-exposed tang cocobolo wood slab handle replicates the original knife that was designed by international sportsman Dall Deweese in 1907. This DeWeese production #897 is a part of the Signature Series produced for Fred Trost's Practical Sportsman TV show and has a small blemish on the front side of the blade. It is not etched into the blade, but I couldn't rub it off when I cleaned and oiled the knife. It has never been sold, carried, used or sharpened and comes with the original blade protector, leather sheath and collectible 1999 Marble's "bobcat" box. The sheaths supplied with this collector's edition are not as high a quality as the sheaths supplied for working field knives. The photographs are of the actual knife offered for sale.
