Summary: this is an early Lile model 19 with 5-1/4" blade, brass guard, and extremely nice knobby light colored thick stag handle. Script signed "Hand Made by James B. Lile", the knife is in excellent condition. Possibly used a time or two as it's been carefully and correctly sharpened. No use scratches on the blade, just a bit of tarnish on the brass guard. Stag is perfect, light colored and really thick with knobby / gnarly texture.
The knife is paired to the original belt sheath with "19" stamped on the back along with Lile in handwriting. The knife stored in the sheath at some point, a bit of darkness at the throat. Overall excellent condition with nothing but a few scuffs and spots on both sides.
5 photos for review – the knife will be shipped in a new black canvas carry case. (not shown but included) This is a large Lile model perfect for hunting / heavy duty use , pull this one out for the big game! This is a very early Model 19 with great stag, buying this one won't leave you much room to upgrade. Great knife for collection / investment purposes -- thanks and good luck.
