Summary: this is an original "Rambo – The Mission" movie knife made before Jimmy passed away. (no dot) Razor sharp and looks to have been carefully and correctly sharpened -- the 10" bead blasted blade looks great with just the normal scuffs in the finish from sheath insertion. The guard with screwdriver tips with a few light rubs, rather minor so I didn't mess with it as I didn't want to muck up the finish. The black handle wrap looks fabulous, no fraying and looks nearly new. The skull crusher butt cap at the butt end of the knife also looks nearly new, the compass inside functions perfectly.
The knife is paired with the original leather sheath made by Buffaloe Leather, the same maker who made the original First Blood sheaths. (rare to find a Buffaloe sheath with this 2nd movie model) The knife / sheath fit is perfect, Buffaloe and LILE shop stamps on the back. The EZ Lap sharpener is in the front pouch. The sheath is in excellent condition with original lanyards, there are some scuffs on both sides but that’s relatively typical.
12 photos for review – as shown, a new black canvas carry case is included. This is an excellent price on a very nice example of a no dot "Rambo – The Mission", a movie knife perfect for collection / long term investment purposes or survival use. These are getting tough to find in any condition, at $1600 plus shipping it’s a downright steal. Thanks and good luck.
