Summary: a numbered "no dot" boot knife made by Jimmy Lile. This knife has a 6" double edged blade (original finish), nickel silver guard, and beautiful deep cut pinned stag slabs. LILE stamp on one side, "48 of 100" on the back. Overall length of the knife is 9-7/8", the knife has not been used. Condition is excellent or better at the minimum, original edges and perfect stag. A bit of tarnish and light handling marks on the hilt, you'll also find a few very light handling marks on both sides of the blade mostly only visible if you turn the blade in direct light.
The knife is paired to what appears to be the original Lile issue boot / concealment sheath with metal clip on the back. The sheath fits the knife like a glove, overall excellent+++ or better condition with very little in the way of scuffs or handling marks.
8 photos for review – the knife will be shipped out of sheath in a new black canvas carry case. This is a great piece perfect for collection / investment purposes, a very attractive price on a numbered Lile boot knife. Thanks and good luck.
