Summary: this is a Jimmy Lile Big 7 with Elephant ivory scales made back in 1982. This knife has a 4” blade, flawless with original edge. It's in gorgeous condition, no signs of use. You'll find light patina / tarnish on the brass hilt and pins, looks too nice to mess with. The handle scales look perfect, no checks or cracks. A couple of spots in the front side scale, but it’s in the ivory and not something that can be cleaned way. Read as: natural!
The knife is paired with the original ambidextrous pouch sheath made by Galco. Slits on both sides of the sheath for right or left hand carry, Lile shop information stamped on both sides. The knife / sheath fit is snug, the knife will not drop out if inserted in the sheath and then flipped upside-down. Hang tags written by Marilyn still attached to the sheath and carry case. The sheath is in excellent+++ condition, just a few light handling / storage marks on both sides.
9 photos for review – as shown, a black canvas carry case is included. This is a very nice, 35+ year old Jimmy Lile Big 7 in unused / near mint condition, an excellent choice if you've been looking to add a Lile classic to your knife collection. Thanks and good luck.
